I was dancing when I met Javi

I wasn't dreaming, it was real

What were you doing when you met your best friend?



Hello dears! My name is Lady Past Continuous.
I'm also very nostalgic like my friend the Past Simple Boy Past Simple Boy.
We were together  in many occassions when we were young. While I was studying to be a secretary he was studying to be a teacher and we lived on the same street in Granada.

When I was going out with his best friend Javi, the Past Simple Boy  was going out with my best friend Margarita. This is an old story but I like thinking about the past.

I met the Past Simple Boy again two years ago in our English Club in Mijas called The Happy Verby Gang. We were talking for hours about the past times.

These days, I usually go out with another guy, the Present Perfect Man, Past Simple Boywe work in the same company and he is also a member of the club. He surprised me last evening; we were having dinner when he invited me to go on holidays together.
