I have a new idea. I always have ideas and then they kind of fizzle out. Like that time I wanted to send letters to everyone and I only sent a few letters to a few people.
This time I have decided that throughout the next five years I am going to meet each of my FB friends at a Starbucks and have coffee. I do not care how much we do not know each other, or do not remember each other, we are sitting down for at least 15 minutes and enjoying a beverage. I will meet you where you live, except for you, Mo, because I will not go to Israel. We can meet somewhere neutral like Switzerland. Everyone else, I will come to you. My only requirement is that you write a brief description of how we meet/how you know me. And that you take a selfie with me. Maybe I will write a book. I might make you sign a release form. Probably not, though. I will probably just start a new section on my blog called Starbucks Selfies. EVERY LAST ONE OF YOU WILL BE SUBJECT TO THIS. We can meet and stare at each other if we actually do not know each other well enough to have anything to talk about, we can play a game of Scrabble, we can chat, we can color pictures for each other. I am open to anything.
This also applies to people I see everyday and know well. Oh, and if you do not remember how we met, either make something up or just say you do not remember, because I cannot remember how I met some of you.
So there is my project. Sometime within the next five years, expect a message from me with a link to this blog and an invitation.
Also, tonight my mom suddenly appeared and said we had to go to Malley’s to get chocolate so I put my shoes on and got in the car and sat there for a good four minutes. I honked my horn which I never do because I was getting very anxious waiting and kind of spazzing out and it turns out she was making coffee. In an actual mug, not a travel mug. For our 5 minute trip to Malley’s. It was funny.
Prepare for coffee.
