Today’s prompt: (Actually, this is yesterday’s. I happened to switch things up. Typical me.)
The next time you’re in a public place — a coffeehouse, a park, a store — observe the people around you. Pick a person, a couple, or a group, and imagine what their lives might be like.
I saw a bunch of men earlier while we were eating at Kanto Freestyle. They were probably in their late 20’s to early 30’s, and it looks like they came from a basketball game — given their get-up, their appetite, and their topic of discussion (I heard a mention of Allan Caidic, so yeah).
I could imagine that these guys were probably classmates from high school, who despite going to different colleges never really grew apart. They’d still meet-up regularly for burgers, drinks and stories — sometimes with their girlfriends. They basically grew up together, until one by one, they eventually got married and had kids. Despite the busy schedule as a parent and a husband, they managed to still keep the friendship in tact through regular meet-ups. One of which is their standard Sunday evening all-boys basketball game + food trip. Cute :)
Side note: I’m not sure if I’m making that story up, or if I’m trying to imagine that the men would probably be what my high school guy friends would look like in a few years. Hehehehehe. Love you, guys.
