I saw Jose again today.  He was waiting for me on the porch.  He introduced himself to me.  I know you, I said.  I saw you at Valley View School and before that I met you at Caroline’s party a couple of Christmases ago.  An hour later when I left he called to me, Thank you for remembering me.
I drove away wondering if that is what we all want…to be important enough to be remembered.
Should I tell him that I also remember that his birthday is in December and that he doesn’t really like to celebrate it?  Perhaps.  But I will wait for another day.
I will present it to him like a gift.
