Today's suggested question is: Write about the last time you connected with a friend.
That's easy. Yesterday early evening, my older sister was sitting at the dining-room table, working on her computer. She pushed her chair back a bit while stating how hot she felt. Mind you, we've been feeling the heat all day even here in WA state, and I was tired of hearing the same thing over and over (God only knows what it will be like when we are a couple of ol' farts sitting on the porch in our rocking chairs with lousy fitting dentures, and the yammering that will be going on!). Did I happen to mention she was named after a cheerleader? She really should have been a tour-guide or talk-show host as she is quite the chatterbox (with the kindest heart).
You're probably wondering by now, what does all that have to do with "connecting with a friend"? Well, I was in the kitchen getting a glass of cold water - and there was a clean plastic bowl in the dish drainer - and being the water-lover I am, don't you know that somehow that bowl managed to fill itself up and then was ceremoniously poured over aforementioned sister's head?
I connected with her alright :D
And thus, the water-fight ensued.
Postscript: the computer was fine, and the kitchen floor got mopped....sort of :)
