Good Friends, Good Food, Good Chatter and Good Drinks. That sums up a very nice evening with four very good friends. Two we see often, two we hadn’t seen in a while, yet the conversation picked right up with everyone sharing stories and life and plans and dreams. And as I look back on it I realize we didn’t talk once of other people. Not the kind of chatter where you tell story or gossip or chatter about someone not there. All our talk was of plans and dreams and kids and ideas for growth and betterment. And today I am grateful for good friends who let our friendship be about all of us. I am better for knowing all of them and I’m looking forward to many more evenings like the one last night.
Laughter poured across the room like the wine into our glasses
Each story louder and funnier than the last
Then the topper of the night….
“I can’t like her Instagram…..”
“Because I can’t. I haven’t been able to for months”
“But I love her Instagram!”
“Well, I can’t like it. I’ve tried, but I can’t”
“How can you not? I Love her pictures!!”
“ I know….but I just can’t like her Instagram….”
(Now becoming incredulous)….. “What do you mean you don’t like her Instagram? Just push this button and like her stuff….it’s so great! How could you possibly not like her Instagram. She posts the greatest things.”
“I know it’s great…and I’d really like to like it….But I’m telling you I can’t like her stuff”
(At this point…the two of us not in the conversation can hardly stay on our stools we are laughing so hard….)
Finally…after having grabbed the phone and pounding on the like button on the Iphone…
“Oh…. You CAN’T Like her instagram!”….. What the hell is wrong with your Instagram account??!!??
Welcome to a Sunday night dinner at our house!!!
