… outside family and household members.
This was the task presented the LBC by our esteemed compadre Paul, known as Blackwatertown. You can find him among the members of the Loose Bloggers Consortium on the right.
I wanted to play it absolutely honestly and absolutely straight, so I have waited until I had the actual three. But, the situation was just a programming situation at work, migrating a database I’ve developed for a very large property management company over the past 16 years to a SQL Server. That isn’t very interesting even if you know technically what I’m referring to!
I spoke with a database administrator who has the same car mechanic that I do, a young woman that I work with in development of a cash management program for them and a young guy who is the head of their networking group.
I returned yesterday evening thinking this was not an interesting bunch. Then I corrected this to the realization that they are vital young people, quite interesting in person that I just know too little about to write anything of interest.
Such is the practical world, isn’t it? So often, we know people at a social layer that is, by proper choice, only about 3 centimeters deep. We move much of our day through a world of shallow acquaintance.
That’s good. Otherwise, I’m certain nothing would ever get done. But, every so often there is a hint of the depths …
But, it is my delight to welcome a great friend I did meet through work about 30 years ago, the shackman. We reconnected after all these years via Facebook, I believe. What a delight, for sometimes those shallow associations turn into oh so much more!
