Ghosts of Loves Past

A Splendid Cast of Characters

After a light-hearted business lunch, talk turned to networking and … men. My guest belongs to a swish private club and I asked her to help me with Project M-A-N. Where are they hiding? What do I tell my clients? Are they ALL stuck in work-in-progress?

She: What type of men have you dated in the past?
Me: An interesting range….hey, today is Mr. Foreign Correspondent’s birthday! Last seen at lunch in Jakarta in 1989, I think…
She: You should connect to say hello.
Me: He’d be easy to find. I heard he finally settled down somewhere in Europe.

Curiosity got the better of me so I wrote: “Bumping into ghosts from my past so why should you be excluded? Without further googling, how are you?” To my surprise, he replied!

We caught up, he, as always, well-mannered and kind; me, happy he re-connected; us, having fun reminiscing. Some ghosts are safe to let out of the closet, although others should remain!
