Yes! How did that happen?
We had a nice weekend. Seriously nice. The Blue Genie Art Bazaar turns out to be a lovely place for gift-buying. We found some pretty good tortas. We ate pizza at Bufalina, which was wonderful and for once not ridiculously crowded. And we went to a party!
When did I forget how to just walk up to people and talk to them? Or didn’t I ever know? I have vague memories of childhood, when it was possible to just mosey on over to another kid, plop yourself down next to them, and say “HI your shoes are cool wanna play tag?” and the answer was pretty much always yes. Or, if it was no, you’d just get up and toddle your kidlet self over to another kid and repeat. No sweat. Long-term friendships were based on where your desk happened to be the first day of school.
I did meet fun people yesterday at this party, though! And it mostly wasn’t awkward.
And now I have a heck of a list I can use for procrastinatory purposes over the next week. There’s (still) insurance to deal with, a silly amount of laundry to do, and errands to run. I got this!
