We went to John’s 50th birthday party. We’ve been invited to their parties before and it’s always a good time (with word games and trivia), but I have to remember they operate on Caribbean time and we operate on engineer time. The party invitation said 6-10 pm which means that, for us, we show up at 6 pm on the dot and no one is in the parking lot. Then we circle around Bethesda looking at big houses in expensive neighborhoods. We arrive as the first guests 40 minutes after 6 and then went the party really starts at 8pm, we had to leave because it is past Edda’s bedtime.
It was a beautiful evening to say hi to friends we haven’t seen in a while.
The lawn was full of wild violets!
