In and out of the rain three times today. Steady rainfall all day––I love it.
Went to a dance performance by JK and RS, then gobbled sushi with an 8 year old who recounted the plot of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade with a special focus on the power of the "magic water" they drank that granted them everlasting life. Then he sucked his fingers and held his bunny to his cheek.
"Do you know what a fidget spinner is?" he asked me.
Do I know?!
"I've got four," he said. "But don't tell my mom about the gold one."
We turned our heads slowly to his mother who ate pad thai and seemed not to hear us. The boy said, "I like to use it just after recess. You know, to calm down a little. Feels good."
Then he put his fingers back in his mouth and laughed. His uncle came back from the restroom. The server zipped over and tried to get us to order green tea ice cream for dessert. The boy got excited, then his father said, "Dude, no. Let's go to the doughnut plant instead!"
What a great life!
