The Prodigal Son Returns for Xmas, Day 3 (see previously 6.346 Trinity / Trilogy).
In Seoul. Here through Christmas. Going back on the 26th with the family to Manila, where we’ll finish out the year.
This marks the first time that MTG and I have seen each other in nearly 15 months* — OMFG, how time flies. Not a single meeting since the blog moved to its new home at the start of Cycle 6, I was confused when “MTG” didn’t show up on the list of previous tags as I was drafting the post. By absurd coincidence, the last time that I saw him (best friend) was also the last time that I ate at the restaurant where I had lunch today (favorite MNM joint) (see most recently 5.230 johndory Fish & Chips). If nothing else, the daily grind of GMTD occasionally puts life into quirky perspective.
*Actually, I find this impossible to believe. I seem to recall, vaguely, an after-dinner gathering at his restaurant sometime during the past year, but I can’t find photos or references to confirm. I’ll ask around, starting with MTG, to see if anyone else remembers.
