I'm feeling sooo happy. I'm meeting up with two old friends in Karlsruhe. Anja lives there, but she used to live where I grew up, and Susie, the other friend, still does. I haven't seen them in a very long time.
I was 16 or 17 when I met them for the first time. On one hand we were so different, but we got along excellently. I was a teenager and they were both in their thirties, I didn't know that I'm gay, but wasn't interested in girls either, I was a virgin, still lived with my parents, Anja lived together with her boyfriend, Susi was married and had a 8 year old boy. We were completely different on the outside, but on the inside we were connected and very similar. I loved both of them as friends. They were the first ones I came out to. And they helped me get a life. They were the ones I talked to about my crushes, and they were the only ones I felt comfortable with each and every second.
We had many nice BBQs, picknicks, walks, talks, laughs and booze-ups together in the past. And we were literally rolling on the floor laughing (sober).
When I moved to Stuttgart and Anja moved to Karlsruhe, unfortunately we didn't meet up anymore. But today was the big reunion. Husbands and partners were not allowed, just the three of us. Girls night :-)
They're both looking so beautiful, I was amazed. They're even looking younger than last time.
We had Pizza together, many Tequilas, and we had a blast. I laughed so much, Tequila actually came out of my nose. That really hurts for many minutes, by the way.
We talked a lot, I needed an update on their lives. They didn't know much about my life since 1999. Besides that, it felt like we've never been seperated. We watched some old pictures of us at our parties or at snowboard trips, and we laughed our asses off. You know, fashion and hairstyles have changed during the past 10 years--thank God!
We're all staying in Karlsruhe for the night and tomorrow we're gonna have a relaxed brunch together. Both of them are already sleeping, I'm still laying in my bed, smiling, because I'm so happy to be with them again.
