The evening started with a quick run to MacDonalds with an Alex who hadn’t eaten all day and was about to make up for it. Ben and Duncan were along. There was much discussion of glycogen and insulin and all things chemistry. As we left MacDonalds the police were outside talking to street people, asking them to be considerate in their use of language and not to swear. Alex thought the police instead should be considerate and buy the 2 men a hot meal. “Think of the children,” the police said.
On the way home all of the boys agreed that the words “into the woods” is a deep metaphor, and one to use in life. This was their collective decision. Ben had never heard of theatre in the round. We were there early enough to inspect the set while waiting for the show to begin. He had never seen a revolving stage.
At the end of the night all of us can finish the line, “I really hate to ask it” .... with ... “do you have a basket”.
We stopped by 7-11 on the way home. All of the guys in the car are well over 6 feet high but still like to go down the candy isle and get pop out of the soda machine.
