I bet you’re wondering where the heck this post is going. Today I had a real lunch. At a real restaurant. Where I wore real shoes. And I actually talked to people other than myself. It was lovely. Maybe the best part about it was the fact that I was the ‘baby’ in the group. My companions, all connected through my volunteer work at the school library, were a hoot. Because we spanned multiple generations the conversations were all over the board (I actually wanted to pull out my notebook and write down bits and pieces of the stories I heard). Yes, this would not have been cool – but it would been great material for a story.
Sadly, I had to skip out before dessert, which is pretty much a sin in my book. However, before I left I received a beautiful gift from the head librarian. She gave all her ‘helpers’ a silver charm bracelet. Guess what the charm on it is? A bookworm! Cool. Very, very cool!
