Samantha, or Sam for short, wound up being a very good friend of mine during our college days. We weren’t the closest in high school, but having a familiar face in a new college and sharing a few classes drove us closer together.
Though, full disclaimer, I didn’t witness this in person, Sam shared a great story with me.
I know I will date myself with the reference, but during my college days, everyone was using MSN Communicator as the preferred means of communication. Facebook had not taken off yet and data plans on cell phones were either non-existent or too expensive to make sense.
Sam and I were carpool or bus buddies. Meaning we would either drive to school together or take the bus together. Whatever conversation we didn’t finish during the ride would then be resumed in our online world.
