I need some more IRL friends, lemme tell ya. There’s my loyal and good friend Stephen down the road from me (in the same apartment complex), and I think I will pay him a visit soon. He’s an older dude, kind of sick sometimes, too (or, he has *been* sick in his life – but he is healthier these days, I think). Not that sickness has anything to do with anything – I could care less. But, he;s been through a lot, seen a lot, a deep person.nnThere’s old friendos I can call up/e-mail through various social networks, probably (hell, if I rejoined FB I would have access to a *lot* of old friends – GOOD friends, too (just not good enough to stay in touch without the convenience of a social media platform, which is a sad state of affairs, for sure)). But, I am not rejoining FB. Ever. Or anywhere else. So they can be far gone “people that I used to know”, for all I care.nnSo, I just need to talk more to people around here, where I live, people I can actually **socialize** with IRL.nnThat’s all.nnFriends – everybody needs ’em!
