Dan Murphy has been one of the best friends I've ever had. That's why I miss him now that he's in Illinois.
I guess I didn't realize how much I missed him until today. I was leaving work and going down the hallway of the Administration Building on campus. When I looked up there was DAN!
OK, it wasn't Dan. It was a guy built like Dan with his hair cut really short, wearing glasses and carrying a skateboard.
My heart actually skipped with joy and I wanted to shout "Dan!" and give him a big hug. Instead, I realized it wasn't Dan and I just smiled and walked on my way.
I miss you, Dan. I am really looking forward to seeing you this Winter!
