There are some people that you don’t see for months, even years, but when you do it’s like you’ve never been apart.
That’s how I feel about my old school and youth theatre friends. We’d arranged to convene in Lich-Vegas long before I’d received my diagnosis but, in medical parlance, it really was ‘just what the doctor ordered’.
Between the six of us, we’ve nearly all been touched by the ‘Big C’: parents having won (or sadly lost) the battle with cancer, as well as having had - or be fighting it - ourselves.
And for that reason, we didn’t really talk about it – well, maybe a bit – but it was all in a very matter of fact, non-emotional way. What we did talk about though was utterly hilarious. And, at times, completely random and surreal! I felt like I laughed non-stop all evening.
So thank you, ladies. If laughter really is the best medicine then, with you guys around, I expect to make a full recovery!
