I roomed with 3 guys one year at school. ( after that i ditched it and got an apartment on my own. I was young and stupid )

They were an interesting group. 

One was a prissy chess player that thought he was better and smarter than us. Total asshole. Got tired of listening to him one evening trying to watch TV as he was playing by himself in the kitchen area, "im a master player bla bla bla " "Fine Mr master player, get that damned board out and if i win you shut up.. forever" and washed the floor with him ( little did he know, i was on the chess team in middle school.. but i grew up and moved on ).  When i left, i dug his prize board out, took one piece, and hid it with some of his other things. Wouldn't find it until he moved out.   Might have been mean, but i didnt toss/steal it, or beat him with a bat. So i was being good.

Another guy, *always* bought fast food.  Just figured it was his gig. One evening i got a can of ravioli out ( having to share a kitchen, i really didnt have the room to 'really' cook things so lots of canned foods and such was my diet ) and as it was on the stove "what, it comes in cans?!?!?" "mom always made that for me" .  After i explained to him how the grocery store worked, and where one was, he had ravioli for every meal, for a week. I guess fast food was not really his gig, he didnt think he had any other alternative since he wasn't at home anymore.  Poor guy.

3rd guy, came right from the deep south. Great guy, tho a little but too southern for me to really identify with him. Even his pickup truck, he converted to LP since they had no gas stations where he grew up. He also moved out about the time as i did as he couldn't handle them anymore either.  "dont you leave me here with these 2 weirdos"

 

That was the summer i blew up my road runner.. Bringing that back home with a couple of my buddies, that was an adventure of a life time.  I still dont know how we didnt get arrested, or dead. Or at the least lost my car out on I65 somewhere.  Man, we were stupid kids. ( part of my bus ride story i think i told before )

I could never remember two of my college roommate's names.  I had a dream last night of a college reunion, and now I remember their names.

Funny how the discussion went to college stories ... the friend I was discussing was my roommate in college. Like I said, we'd been friends for decades. We met in 3rd grade, went to the same college, ran with the same crowd. It wasn't an on-and-off thing, we were literally besties for decades, and then last year he just ghosted me with no explanation.

Yeah ... it sucks and I definitely agree with whichever one of you said that the reason I keep dreaming about him is because I need to process the whole thing. I wonder if the need for closure is a universal trait of human nature, or if it only applies to some of us.

I'm an extrovert, but I'm shy in crowds, so my friends are few but close.
It really stings to lose one.

I would imagine its human nature for closure, but it would still vary by person, and by what they lost.

Speaking of closure and friends and such.

Just lost my best friend this morning, unexpectedly.  Call from one of her children around 8am.  I never answer the phone if i dont recognize the number. I did this time.

Unsure as of yet.

However. another friend who was talking to her on the phone that evening said she was having trouble speaking.  So i suspect a stroke.

Those suck, but I think they are better than degenerative sickness that wear people down to nothing in the span of a year. Those ones really crush families.

I donno, being able to prepare i think is a bit 'better' of an option.   Neither is good of course.
