I had my cricket tournament coming up and I was super stressed. I had taken a break between practice and my phone rang. Now, I use Truecaller, so I usually know when it’s spam and it wasn’t this time, but it was an unknown number.

I was ready to pick up and yell at whoever it was. To my surprise, when I did pick up, it was an old friend I went to second grade with. It may not sound like a big deal, but on a day like that, I probably needed an old friend to bring a smile on my face.
