I got the call yesterday afternoon. My pal Mike, with whom I get to hang very infrequently - due to age and distance - called to let me know he would be swinging by to spend the night. He lives a mere 8 hours west. He got here a little past midnight.
He and his family, all five of them, racked up in the van at 9 am this morning and struck out for parts south and east. We had a total of 8 hours together. 7 of which were sleep.
It was so much fun to see Mike and his family. I'm glad to be the kind of friend who can entertain a swing by from an old friend late at night. I'm grateful that he is the kind of friend who just asks. Be open to the impromptu.
