Kris, a coda of sorts

by Erik Swedlund

Today, while browsing the web, I figured I'd see if I could find out what my old friend Josh Geurink and his family were up to. I knew Josh used to be pretty active on the web, so finding some trace of him with a search engine wouldn't be hard. I fired up the old search with the term "Geurink" (how many could there be?) and was hit with a flood of results. Apparently, there are a lot of Geurinks.

Luckily, it happens that Josh's father runs a website actually devoted to keeping track of all the Geurinks. So in the middle of all the mess of the search results, I had found a website that was handy in keeping all the results straight, and, even better, focused on the particular branch of Geurinks I was looking for.

Josh is living in Madison, WI, it seems. I'll have to look him up next time I go up there to visit some other friends. I knew Josh in high school. I met him freshman year, just before his family moved to Milwaukee. We got to be pretty good friends, and I went to visit him a lot.

Which is how I got to know his little sister. Elsewhere on Too Many Colors, you can read "Your Run-of-the-Mill First Kiss Disaster," which is the story of my first kiss. The person I kissed was Kris, Josh's little sister.
