We Meet Again Essay

788 words - 4 pages

I never thought we'd meet again. Well, maybe I did in the “fantasy land” part of my mind, which resides next to my successful career as a Pixar animator and my lavish life after hitting the lottery. Our last encounter was brief. I was too busy perfecting my ability to sink a ping pong ball into a red Solo cup to give you the attention that you needed. I left abruptly one day—withdrew myself completely. Yet, here we are again.

Are you sure this is the right one? I look at the number displayed outside of the door over and over before I decide that it isn't going to magically change. The small, stuffy room has a few occupants already. I flash them a quick smile as I walk in and claim a seat in the back, right-hand corner.
As the minute hand nears closer to the twelve the room fills with more and more people. A sense of relief comes over me as I realize the group is an assortment of characters; there is a wide array of ages and backgrounds and stories to share. It's a nice change from the crowd I had experienced with you before—the full...
