Slice of Life Story Day 14 A Conversation Over Dinner With Friends
Last night we had friends for dinner and during the course of the evening I asked each person to name something they have never done that they assumed most people had done. Hmmm?
They thought about it for a while and then began to share their respective revelations. Initially some were struggling to think of something, so I offered to go first. I shared the fact that I have never seen the movie ‘Avatar’ despite the fact that it is the most watched movie in history. I have never read a Harry Potter book. I have never watched the immensely popular television show, ‘Master Chef.’
Suddenly our guests came forward with their own statements. ‘I’ve never drunk whiskey.’ ‘I’ve never been to
Bali.’ ‘I have never eaten snails.’ ‘I’ve never smoked a cigarette.’ –and so it went.
It was all a bit of fun, and it certainly got the conversation flowing. All part of a great night in the company of close friends, sitting around a table sharing a glass of wine and delicious food. Simple pleasures shared.
