The other day I got a FB friend's request from a name I hadn't seen since high school.
Scratch that, a name I hadn't seen IN high school.
It was a guy I'd gone to elementary school with - he was in first grade with me. I think we'd parted ways by middle school. I have no idea how or why he tracked me down on Facebook, other than perhaps mutual friends from our hometown. After a bit of head scratching, I said yes, sure, why not. He seems sane enough.
He's now set the record for "person I have re-established communication with that I also knew in real life for the longest time." He beat out a record held by my friend BB, whom I had met in 4th grade all county orchestra and later went to high school with. (She still is a way better violin player than I ever was. She could have gone pro but she went off and joined the Army instead, presumably because it paid better.)
Have you ever bumped into someone online that you knew before there was an Internet?
