My pal Kirsten and I made a plan to spend a day together at an art gallery. We took the metro, made it to Dupont Circle (it's been a long time since I've been to that metro stop-the escalator is impressive-like going up into heaven), found the gallery with no trouble, and discovered that, naturally, it is closed on Monday.
Neither one of us thought to call.
|Just Kidding. Proper exposure shows it's just Dupont Circle.|
But it is a BIG escalator.
|Our hoped-for destination.|
|It's a gorgeous building.|
|Except for this bit.|
But no matter. We had fun in Dupont Circle anyway (bookstore, fantastic burger, yummy bakery), and now we're guaranteed of another day together because the Eversave expires in a month or so.
|There was plenty of other fun to be had.|
|And burgers to eat. Those are Sweet Potato Fries!|
|And back we go into the metro.|
So it's all good. And it was a reminder of this quote that I like. For us, this was a laugh and a lark. I treasure the time together, even though it ended up being what some might call "nothing," it was really a wonderful little oasis of refreshment in our busy lives.
The real test of friendship is: can you literally do nothing with the other person? Can you enjoy those moments of life that are utterly simple?The answer is yes. I enjoyed myself completely and can't wait till Take 2!
