Dining with strangers

Good news! We didn't scare off the couple we met at a hostess stand a few weeks ago! You might recall, on our search for outdoor dining we introduced ourselves to a couple on the same hunt and ended up sharing dinner together at the Wine Market. Joe and I had a great time, but it's quite possible the other couple could have found us to be weird, desperate, overbearing whack jobs.

Alas, this is not the case. (Self-esteem still in tact - whew). Steve and Kelly suggested another night out in a few weeks, so we're looking forward to a night with our artsy fartsy friends. The more culturally aware friends I can accumulate, the better. When we parted ways last time, Steve was about to participate in his first "poetry orgy" for class, so I'm anxious to hear how it went.

And p.s., major kudos to the professor behind that syllabus. What better way to get a bunch of college kids interested in poetry than to promise them an end of year "orgy"? Well done. What do you think Whitman would say?
