On Facebook, I talk about going to the Vine a lot, espcially on every other Wednesday . That is my day off ( which menas work every other Satuday ) and I try to go down for Happy hour. Sometimes , there are 10 or 12 of us , but last week , on Bonus Thursday , there were only three of us. While hnaging with my friends C and C , I finally understood why it is something I enjoy so much. It isn’t the wine and food ( though that is good !); it is the conversation. The conversation is not intense, or earth shattering , but that is what is going on . Yes, we all have phones and yes there might be a facebook messages — or picutres of food and wine sent to working spouses and friends , but mostly it is just conversation.
We all have families , work to do ( yes painting counts ), and our time is limited. so we talk about stuff. and some other stuff , and then some more.
I like these long meandering conversations and I value them.
