Our eyes met as we descended to the lobby of Ponce Hall at Flagler College, formally known as the historic Ponce De Leon hotel in St.Augustine, Florida. There she was like Punk Rock Cherry Cola. Kristin Nagle. She quickly looked away as I continued to examine her with a wicked smile. She had platinum surfer hair with light waves that just might be ride-able with a long-board on an extremely humid day. This was the day I made eye contact with one of my greatest friends. Without her, No Sympathy Swim would not have been born.
