What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Old Friend

In case you haven’t been watching them, Jerry Seinfeld’s web series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” is an absolute delight. They just released the first episode in Season Six, and Jerry is driving around (in a 1964 Aston Martin, no less) with his old buddy, Julie Louis-Dreyfus. It’s immediately apparent that they haven’t seen each other in years.

As entertaining as this video is, as funny as they both are, the real reason it’s today’s Beautiful Thing is the obvious closeness between Julia and Jerry. They crack each other up so hard, they keep having to stop what they’re doing to laugh.

“I love anything you have to say today that starts with ‘Do you remember.'”

With real old friends, no matter how long it’s been, when you get together again, it’s like no time has passed at all. I am incredibly lucky in that I have quite a few friends with whom I’ve reconnected over the last couple of years, and so Jerry and Julia’s immediate intimacy in this video feels very familiar. You know how it goes. Okay, maybe there’s a bit of catching up to do, but there’s nothing like the instant connection of seeing a real friend again after years (or, in my case, decades) apart.

So this is dedicated to all the old friends that I’ve found over the past few years (thanks, Facebook!). Thanks to all of you for still being who I remember and for remembering me!

  1. Your post’s timing is perfect . . . justa few days reconnected with my college roommate. Lives in South Africa now! We hadn’t talked in years, but it was like no time had passed at all.

  2. The Modesto High Class of 1973 recently gathered to celebrate The Summer of 42; years since MHS. It was Magnificent!, Fantastic! Amazing! just like this video. Reconnecting friends don’t count the years only the hugs and laughs.
