I have a friend who lives in America. We’ve known each other for about a decade, but we’ve never met, and we’ve never spoken in person.
Tonight, she persuaded me to try Skype. Ostensibly so our kids (who write to each other) can talk in person every now and then, but of course, I had to check it worked, so tonight, I downloaded Skype and she sent me an invite, and, hey presto! we were talking face to face!
It was such a lovely surprise to see her smiling face and actually hear her voice at the same time. Another of her friends was on too, so I got introduced and we chatted for a little while.
I could get used to this!
Thank you, S, for introducing me to the joys of Skype. Let’s not wait another ten years to speak in person again!
