bear.jpgAt Monday night’s dinner, I had a surprise. At the time, I thought it was a good thing. Later, I wasn’t so sure.

As I mentioned last week, I used to work for Mr Beazley during his first stint as Leader of the Opposition. While there, I had about a dozen volunteer staff – uni students mostly – working for me. One of them, Karl, appeared at the dinner on Monday. And although Karl was one of my favourite people from the office, it bought up some things I’d prefer not to reflect on too often – namely the circumstances of my departure. And so while it was great seeing Karl again, it had a negative taste I’d probably have had a better week without.

Now it’s a few days later, and I think the solution is to have Karl over for dinner sometime soon. To catch up properly, and make sure we don’t let it be another 9 years between drinks.

I also canceled an evening with Sir Paddington Bear this week. I should remedy that too.

  1. If it had a negative taste, do you think it wise to have him over for dinner? Are you sure this friendship is not best left in the past?
