I remember thinking about my old buddy from back in high school a little while back We both played football and we were the best of friends.
We basically did everything together and sometimes I wonder what happened to him.
We went our separate ways when it came to college. He went to the other side of the country to go to school. I was able to visit one time but then we lost contact with each other and he moved someplace else. He was serious about school so I figured he would be successful. I actually wanted him to stick around and go to an HVAC trade school like I did, but he didn’t want to do that. He wanted to get his degree in business. Well, I was shocked when he came around and wanted to meet up at the local burger joint we used to hang out at all the time. He told me he was looking for work, but I didn’t know how I was going to get him some sort of business job. He laughed and said he had his HVAC certification. He knew that I was doing that work and so he decided to go for it when things didn’t work out in college. He said he wished he would have just stuck with me way back when and he had been working as an HVAC technician in the West for the last few years. He finally wanted to come see everybody back at home though, and he wants to stick around. I was able to put in a good word for him at the HVAC company and he got a job. Things have been great hanging out again like we used to, and we’re actually talking about starting up our own HVAC company.
