After college hours or between breaks Richard and Andrew would head for the cafeteria nearby and occupy table number 19 at the corner. They would exchange notes or just chat on various topics over cups of coffee. Richard was a brilliant student and a rank holder in university while Andrew who wasn’t as exceptional as his friend was smart. Richard pursued academics and became a professor in a college. Andrew led a very successful and hectic professional life as a top level banker who traveled the world.
After many years they were thrilled to meet at their college reunion and decided to visit the cafeteria which brought back pleasant memories of their past. During their animated discussions they caught up on each other. Andrew narrated his success story, his accolades and his various travels but complained about his stress that caused many health hazards.
“Tell me about your life,” he said to Richard after he had finished.
“After college I spend time with my children and wife and we are content,” he replied.
