I finally caught up with a friend from many years ago. Each Christmas, we’d exchange letters, always vowing to meet up, but as often happens, for years nothing ever eventuated. It was definitely “in my court”, but these things become almost embarrassing after a few years. However, finally a few weeks ago, I overcame my inhibitions, so made contact and we arranged to meet for lunch at Graduate House.
I don’t think I’ve ever been there for lunch (it’s a bit out of the way for me), but it was very pleasant and we found we still had matters of common interest to discuss. I wore a jacket (but no tie) “just in case” there was some sort of dress code. Err…this is academia – if there is a dress code, then it wasn’t immediately obvious!
