When it came to be my turn, I stared hard at the young man taking my order. He looked very familiar and I'm good with faces. So I took off my sunglasses and looked right at him. He took my order, and then mentioned that I looked familiar.
"Yes, Dan," I cried, "it's me, Nana, from Econ 150." I told him that I was seeing the movie with another classmate of ours, and when she came back from the bank, it was a fun reunion.
She was impressed that I remembered him. That's because I make it my business to interact with the other students, and this class was headed up by Dr. Kim, who was a real character. We had a fair share of military veterans in the class, including Dan, who sported a mohawk dyed purple. He's still a theater arts and graphic illustrator major, and appears far more conservative now than I remember him.
But remember him I did. Good to see old classmates every now and then, especially so close to home.
