A Full Circle Friendship

| Friendly | February 24, 2016

(After a competitive and grueling audition process, I’m at my first rehearsal of the year for one of the choirs. We’re assigned folder partners, who will be sharing our music for the rest of the year.)

Me: “Hi, I’m [My Name].”

Partner: “I’m [Name & Surname] from Gresham, Oregon, USA.”

Me: “I used to live in Oregon before we moved to Boston. Are you by any chance related to [Name & Same Surname]?”

Partner: “She’s my mom!”

Me: “My mother couldn’t draw princesses, so your mom drew ones for us. We still have them at home!”

Partner: “Which means your mom is [My Mother.]”

(And that’s how friends’ daughters became friends over a decade after they knew each other.)
