The Park

We went to the park on Saturday. It was so lovely and fall-like. I got sunburnt without thinking for an instant about over-exposure.
I sat on a bench with Adele while Hattie and Emery played. An expectant woman sat down beside me. I asked when she was due, and before I knew it, we were knee deep in conversation about - what else? - babies.
She had a happy smile and a ready laugh.
We talked on and on about potty training, child birth, and many things in between. I knew her children's names and she knew mine, and yet when we got up to leave, I realized I had never asked her what her own name was. Funny how that happens.
We laughed like old friends and never even knew each others' names.

  1. Strange how this happens all too often with me. I'm glad you enjoyed a nice visit together.
