Walk Right Back

Well, something interesting happened at work last night.
For the last couple years, there had been a young lady (early 20s) who was a regular for awhile. She'd come in to play Dance Dance Revolution and we'd say hi and chat a bit. Well, she'd been gone for the better part of the last year. Just last week, another regular asked if I'd seen her lately. I of course said no.
Well, she walked in last night. BIG hug and "I'm so glad to see you" and such. We chatted for about ten minutes, just catching up...then she went to play and I went to work.
And then an employee asked if she was my daughter. Um...no. No kids. No plans for kids. Ever.
She gave me another hug goodbye when we closed. She was going on a trip to Mammoth to do some snowboarding, and she said she'd be back.
I hope so. I hate when nice people disappear from my life.

Yes, they really DID dress like that.
Enough of all that.
Be seeing you.
