Day Twenty: Won't You Be My Neighbor
Back in the day I found this great vintage card table. It doubles as a sort of suitcase with metal legs that can unscrew and be placed inside, with room enough for games and such. I've been using it as a table for years but it's been a long spell since games were played. Tonight, I met up with one of my neighbors - bringing the card table and a couple chairs to the street, first thing he said was, "oh, if this card table could talk." And yes, that old wood and rusty metal bits definitely have stories!
I loved hanging out with someone I usually only see in passing and really loved the sort of energy that gathered as the night went on. Kind of like a buffet at a party, people just flocked to it. Stories were shared and I even got to learn a new game: "7 card no peek".
Grateful for this day. It was a little scary. Felt like a school girl, asking, "hey, do you wanna play with me?" But, you know, worse thing that could have been said was "no". And I got a "yes". Mission accomplished!
