I had to change my car tires this morning and it could only be done at a specific garage.
So I drive to the garage and, completely unexpected, I drive past the house of an ex... From 16 years ago!
Google Maps would not have send me there, but I used TomTom, who did.
While waiting for my car I start to wonder, how is she and her family?
We didn't break up on bad terms and I've talked to her a few times after.
We even hung out a few times as friends, but that was long ago.
I've lost her number and she doesn't do social media and the last time I talked to her was over 10 years ago.

On my way back I just pulled over and rang the bell and to my surprise she still lived there.
Her father opened the door and I was like "Hey [name], remember me!? Big Grin | :-D "
To say they were surprised is an understatement Laugh | :laugh:
I've changed A LOT since then so they didn't even recognize me at first.
Kind of the real life equivalent of befriending that high school friend you haven't talked to in years on Facebook.
Of course they let me in, offered me a drink and we had a nice talk (mostly her dad and me) and we exchanged numbers.
I'm not planning on getting back together or anything, but it was nice seeing them again.
Still kind of awkward at first though Laugh | :laugh:

Not sure yet if I'll follow up with a WhatsApp message, but at least I'll send them a Christmas card Smile | :)
