Just When That Was

We bumped into each other in the hall. He and I had actually met a few days ago. He smiled at me like he was seeing and good friend.

“Hello!” he said.

He mentioned that he had heard that I might be interested in helping with student council. He nodded understandingly when I confessed to having my hands full for these first few months. Still, he seemed happy at the prospect of having some more help.

We talked about our backgrounds. He mentioned that he had been state president in Indiana. I think he said that was 2002. I told him that I had been a state vice president in Illinois.

“When was that?” he asked. 

I told him. His face didn’t betray a thing when I told him just when that was.
