Childhood chums meet back up, but things have changed.
(from Men and Cartoons)
This one had men and a cartoon.
Of course the old friends can’t just pick up where they left off, with silly jokes and a secret understanding. They’ve grown up and diverged, and yet here they are back together again. But the point of this story beyond that is a bit hazy. And that’s a pretty good thing. Over-eager attempts to verbalize or homilize would be weak and untrue. Instead, the dialogue and action are happily afloat.
