Keeping in touch with old friends

That should read “losing touch with old friends,” because if I kept in touch with them, they wouldn’t be old friends.

Dear Dave,

Why is it so hard for you to keep in touch with old friends?

I know you don’t like to make excuses, so it can’t be…

…because you don’t value our relationship. We’ve spent some quality time together in the past. Had a lot of great moments where you’ve helped me & I’ve helped you. We’ve drank, laughed, danced, spun around in circles, talked, ate and partied together. We’re definitely best friends.

…because I live far away. I’ve had the same cellphone for years. The number hasn’t changed, and I know you have it. You’ve got my email address too, and I know you send at least 30 of those every day. We’re friends on Facebook, following each other on Twitter.

…because you don’t have the time. I know you’re a busy guy, but you never just have time. You make time. And I know you make time for other things that are probably not as important.

So what’s your excuse?

Me: I think you just answered it for me… There isn’t one.
