What's a social life?

The sky is unbelievable colours, pinks and oranges and bright blues, like vivid children's candy, like a skyscape packed with E-numbers.

Last night I rediscovered the pleasures of a social life (I was so out of practice that it took me a couple of hours to get into the swing of it). It is nice to have the option.

The first person I am introduced to looks at me strangely, I stare back, we are both thinking where do I know you from? Turns out we used to hang-out in college / 6th form; there is something so preposterous and unlikely about this that it seems almost sinister. In a more twee existence we would have discussed the good old times and become friends again, but in truth it was nine years ago and a lot has happened in the meantime. This makes me vaguely sad, but not regretful.
