Goodbye, Lisa and James
Liz and I visited James and Lisa, over at their place downtown. Actually, it was Lisa’s parents’ place – the two of the were staying there for a month or so, before moving off to Maryland.
Tonight was one of their last nights in Chicago, and Liz and I went over to say our goodbyes, and to hang out one last time.
Weird building coincidence #1: the apartment was right next to Trump Tower, which I first saw when Gretchen came to visit me for my birthday.
The four of us hung out for a while, listening to music and chatting about all manner of things. We sipped on some wine, and ate a fantastic strawberry cream desert that Liz made.
It was definitely an odd feeling, hanging out with James and Lisa for what would be, technically, the last time in a long time. Liz remarked that it hadn’t really sunk in yet, that the two of them were leaving, and moving away to a totally different state.
I guess we have yet another group of friends who have moved off to Maryland. All the more reason, I’m thinking, for a road trip out East.
