Friday 5: Hanging Out
New discovery: Friday 5. I'm starting on Thursday, because I can.
Where did you hang out with friends when you were a teen? There was a pond in Charlotte where we used to gather on the weekends when the weather was warm. They tried to keep us out with boulders, trees felled across the dirt road, "no trespassing" signs. Didn't they know that forbidden fruit is exponentially more delicious?
Where did you hang out with friends when you were in your twenties? Bars. In Madrid we took the last subway out at night and rode the first one home in the morning.
Where do you hang out with friends now? Porches, patios and coffee shops.
What great hanging-out memories do you have? My second trip to Bonnaroo with my friend Pattie, who never meets a stranger. We camped next to some crazy Canadians and a red headed kid with his older brother, and ran into friends from the year before...Cape Man, his sidekick, and more. They all gathered at our campsite before the music started each day to share stories, jokes, food, music.
What ingredient makes hanging out better some times than others? A sense of humor.
