Together Again, Gee it's good to be Together Again


Like other holidays, Halloween has its own traditions. Some have been around forever & some get introduced & either don't stick or stay for the long haul.

If you hadn't figured out yet, Doba's in Boston now.

DOBAS UNITE!!!

3 Halloweens ago Dobes & I took a trek up to the north side to find an Halloween costume. This year we too a trek from LMA up to Cambridge in search for the perfect butterfly wings.

Mission Accomplished: kinda.

The wings kind of suck. But oh well. They'll do. Not like I'll be paying attention to them since I'LL BE DANCING MY BRAINS OUT TOMORROW!!

Back to the story....

Dobes dropped me off at the costume shop & drove to find a place to park for his phone interview. The shop was, as expected, swamped. And upon entering I saw him, someone who either is Ethan or who looks just like him. I felt an immediate wave of nausea & high tailed it upstairs to the 'wing' section. I didn't want to check, to stare, there's no reason to talk. You know? What would the conversation been like?

'hey what's up? what's been going on? how are you?'

'um, none of your business. and you?'

'none of your business.'

'yeah, hope to not have to catch up with you for another 6 months.'

'yeah, bye.'

NO THANK YOU.

So I got the last wings possible (& have since mutated them into something decent...thanks dobes!) and left. Doba was no where to be found so I grabbed a DD coffee & 10 minutes later found him & we pulled off in his boat of a Buick.

We headed to the Taco Bell, well, got lost & finally found it, ordered our usuals (him: 7 layer & bean burrito & biscuit because this TB is also a KFC; me: 7 layer sans guac & crunchy taco supreme beans no meat) and sat down at a dirty table. And then we laughed. At everything. Talked & laughed. And laughed until we cried & couldn't breathe.

And the world was right again.

Not that there was anything wrong before but in those moments all of our stress, worries, & preoccupations vanished.

Transcendental friendship.

So an Halloween tradition has been solidified by its recurrence and a long distance friendship has been restored to its proper place through location.
