STATE COLLEGE, Penna. — One of the great things about Christopher and Sarah’s wedding earlier this month was it brought a lot of great people together. The only problem is with so many good people around, you don’t get enough time with any of them. It is was an embarrassment of riches.
Since I had to take care of some best man duties at the end of the reception, I didn’t get to say good-bye to all the people I would have liked. Case in point, Mark (a fellow groomsman) and his wife Jen, a great couple Christopher knows for his Penn State days. We went our separate ways without saying farewell.
Sure enough, a couple of days later I was walking down the elm-lined mall towards downtown State College so I could go back to the Atherton Hotel where we were staying. I had stopped to wait for the light to change at the intersection of College and Allen and I catch a glimpse of a familiar looking face on the other side, just before a CATA bus drives passed. As soon the sight line is clear, I confirm that is Jen. I went over said, hello and was quickly joined by Mark. I wasn’t surprised to see them because they had told me they were going to stop by Happy Valley on their way back to Ohio. I’m annoyed with myself though, because I missed an excellent photograph since we were standing right at The Corner restaurant. Wouldn’t it have been a great to get a shot of them with the “Meet me at The Corner” sign in the background? I even had my camera strap around me neck! I just didn’t have my head in the game or something. Anyway, it was great to see Mark and Jen and get to say farewell.
