Some Sunday afternoons I buckle down and do SO MUCH homework.
Not last Sunday. Last Sunday all I wanted was to HANG OUT. So a dozen (literally) kidstuff folks all decided to hang out at Chuy’s. Fantastic time. Poetry recitation. Coloring sheets. Plenty of stories and laughter. And poor Eric, one of the other interns. He was smack in the middle of the 5 women and 7 men, and smack in the middle of, but having a hard time fully engaging in, two VERY different conversations.
Until, out of NOWHERE, he decided to say, “If anyone is wondering what to get me for the next major holiday, which just so happens to be tomorrow (the 4th of July), it’s that painting over there.”
