I Saw My College Roommate on the Internet

I found my first college roommate on Facebook tonight. I'd forgotten his name for a few years, but it came back to me while I was sitting on the couch trying to remember if he'd actually played accordion or whether that was some kind of false memory I'd created based on my spotty recollection of his erratic behavior. I remember he was very religious, and that he was the only upperclassman with a freshman roommate. I think we lived together for about four months before he requested a transfer; he may have been the only person I didn't get along with. Not that I hated him. I remember trying to show appreciation for the memo he gave me that explained how email works. He meant well, but it was odd that he had a problem with me staying out late. It just didn't work out. And I'd sometimes wondered what had become of him. Well, for once, thanks Facebook.
