Kade: Hey…Can you chat? I guess you're not on line...
Arie: Yes I’m here!
Kade: Just wanted to drop you a note that I'm thrilled for your family vacation plans. What fun times ahead for you! Congratulations.
Kade: Is now a bad time?
Arie: no, I’ve got a few minutes. thanks for the congrats. I know you do the family vacation thing too…but I see you in my minds eye as too young to have teenagers. Maybe age is more of an illusion than we think.
Kade: Most definitely. I'm not aging at all - just everyone around me.
Arie: :D Meaning that when we connect, it doesn't matter.
Kade: It doesn't matter - isn't that great!
Arie: Can you still meet for lunch on Thursday? I can bring apples and cheese. Do you like sharp cheddar?
Kade: We can go together from your office if that works.
Arie: Just call me when you arrive and I’ll meet you outside. I think both of our dads would approve.
Kade: I just want a brother that understands. Did your father understand?
Arie: I don’t know if he did or not. It’s not something we got a chance to discuss, but we can talk more about it if you like. It will be so good to see you again.
Kade: We are hiding this from our wives. Does that make it right or wrong? Another question to ponder. Anyway, I've got to run... I hope you're okay - sometimes I ask too many questions...
Arie: You're fine, my man. I'm good. It's been a good chat. Talk to you soon.
Kade: Huge hugs!
Arie: The same for you.
When Kade and Arie met on Thursday, they didn’t realize they’d have some unwanted company. To be continued…
