Seeing an Old Friend Online

Leave a comment

I love living out in the mountains of Colorado. There’s a lot of snow, which makes it great for skiing, which I do a lot of during the year. I live in a fairly rural area where everyone in town knows everyone else. A close friend of mine lives a couple of states over in a big city, and I talk to him occasionally on the phone. He always wanted to video chat with me, but my poor Internet connection couldn’t handle it. Once I got Hughesnet rural Internet in Colorado, my circumstances changed and I could finally video chat with him.

When I did my first video chat after getting a new Internet connection, my friend was surprised to see that I had grown a beard. When we used to hang out, I always had a clean shave, but over time, I got tired of shaving and buying razors. I just invested in an electric razor and now I only trim the edges of the beard and just let it grow out. I was surprised to see that my friend had shaved all of the hair off of his head. He told me that he was starting to go bald, and didn’t want to have bald spots or patches in his hair, so he just got rid of all of it.

My friend and I had a pretty good laugh at the change in our looks. I told him that he looked like a famous bald boxer, and he told me that I looked like some kind of gruff mountain lumberjack. It was good to finally see my friend’s face after so long. Maybe one day he can come to Colorado and do some skiing with me, or maybe I can visit him in the city and do some sight seeing.
