It’s always great to reconnect with old friends. It’s been many, many years since Friar Rico and Belinda graced the Elk Point-Jefferson High School stage in the Worst High School Play in the World. No, really. That was the name of the play. The narrating characters ate throughout the entire play and with each scene, they gained another layer of fat suit. I hadn’t seen Stana or her husband Mitch for two years since my visit to northeast Tennessee, and we told stories and laughed like it was 1996. Of course, Facebook updates serve to help people stay connected, but they will never replace a real conversation.
