Friday’s thankfulness comes in the form of a friend who was one a student. When Jessica and I move to Texas to pursue seminary we came into contact with various folks at the seminary church (as told by yesterday’s post) and one of them was Vincent. He was in Jr. High when I first met him and when we left the seminary he was in High School. He, however, continued to call and email and stay in touch. Vincent has been a loyal friend for over a decade now. If you’re doing the math on that you’ve figured out that he’s an adult now.
Vincent has gotten up extra early to meet me for breakfast, stayed up extra late to chat and play video games as well as being up extra normal hours to go to work. I think I can say with confidence that I have spent more time on the phone with Vincent than any other adult in my life besides Jessica. And she only wins because she’s my wife. Vincent and I have talked a LOT. I think I may have diarrhea of the mouth sometimes, though, so it could just be me 😉
Vincent’s has a sixth sense for phone tag – he calls when I’m in the middle of something that wasn’t in my schedule like he’s a comic book ‘timing’ super-hero. He always lets me call him back, though. Word to his mother (Ice, ice, baby).
