I met up with one of my oldest (if not the oldest) friend today. We’ve known each other since we were about 5 (?) but haven’t seen each other since high school-ten plus years ago, or in other words, way too long! She recently just moved up here to work for Condoleezza Rice as a researcher. She’s the first to tell you that it has nothing to do with politics. Leisel’s working for her at Stanford. I love that a girl from Bakersfield is now working for the former Secretary of State. She’s one badass girl!
Here we are 20+ years later:
She says she has 20 year old pictures of us from back in the day and I cannot wait for her to scan them in and send them to me.
It was a seriously wonderful lunch. The food was pretty good too:
My favorite Leisel story is when we were in 1st grade, it was raining out and we had to stay in at lunch recess. We decided that it would be a GREAT idea for her to pull one of my teeth. She wanted to pull one and I wanted money so we thought this was a fantastic idea. Oh, did I mention that my tooth wasn’t loose? Yeah, it wasn’t. She pulled it out and I spewed blood EVERYWHERE. It was great. Thank god we chose a baby tooth and not a permanent one! Sadly, I didn’t get my money
It was so great to catch up and I cannot wait to see each other more! Lucy has to meet Aunt Leisel!
