Breakfast in the Castro - Chemistry

Mibes: Great to see you. It's our first breakfast of the New Year. 

Me: (hugging him) Happy New Year, Mibes!

Mibes: Did you stay up late on the 31st?

Me: In my own way. I listened to fireworks.

Mibes: Because they woke you up?

Me: No, I was awake, just not outside looking skyward.

Mibes: Plenty of opportunity to do that in the light of day.

Me: What?

Mibes: Look skyward.

Me: How 'bout you. How was your night?

Mibes: Not bad, given the circumstances. Maybe I've caught your cold. I don't know. I went to bed early. Didn't sleep great. But I'm glad to see you.

Me: As am I to see you. 

Mibes: There is a certain chemistry, isn't there?

Me: Yes. Interesting that you'd mention chemistry, because I've got a quote on it.

Mibes: Why am I not surprised.

Me: Karl Jung said, "The meeting of two personalities is like the contact between two chemical substances, if there's any reaction both are transformed."

Mibes: So you're being transformed, are you?

Me: One breakfast at a time.

Mibes: You're up for more breakfasts in 2015?

Me: I am. As long as you are.

Mibes: That makes three of us.

Me: Huh? 

Mibes: You, me and our friendship.
