Default Childhood Friends?

There must have been something in the water where I used to live. I turned on the TV last night, and saw one of my childhood friends (when I was 11 - 13 years old, he lived across the street from me, was in my 6th grade class, we walked to school together every day, then he moved away).

It turns out Jeffrey has made it big. Huge actually. The president of Ebay, net worth 4.4 billion. Film producer. Philanthropist. Celebrity. I wonder if he remembers me?

trip> try calling up one of your grade 6 classmates out of the blue, preferably one you haven't spoken to since.... say.... grade 6. Ask to borrow a 20.

Hey I grew up in that neighbourhood too, well, close to it anyway. How come I don't know any millionaires?
Would be interesting though, to see if he does remember you Cynic....
