Life must be lived as play.

12/ whatever the situation; ice breaker or fire diffuser, food (even just the idea of it) has a remarkable effect on people. so tell me what’s your favorite food that always bring a big fat smile on your face. every single time!
11/ to dissipate the seriousness sounding lecture that was in the works, i laughed & told the old man i was running to eat my dinner before it got cold or i got old, whichever came first. he stared long & hard before bursting into laughter
10/ tripped on a bump in the dug up road and fell flat on the rough tarmac. the painful fall was no match for the delightful nostalgia of scraped knees that were a staple of my youth. a kind passerby decided to lecture me on road safety
9/ and on my way back from a meeting that still feels so fleeting, i walked out rather ran straight into a beating. pumped by the conversation & caffeine stoked in the fire of IRL interaction, i ran home for a zoom meeting i was hosting..
8/ what @pablomuralo and i chose to drink enabled us to know more about each other in 2 minutes of discussion than in 2 hours of conversation that followed. love and lust both can happen at first sight. food not just fuels but also reveals.
7/ at starbucks, engaging the barista with a flipped conversation around what food i like and don’t like while selecting revealed my personality in a way that feels lightly intimate and engaging. also smiles can do what even sugar can’t
6/ easy to dive into specifics of what they’d eaten and when. if they’ve not eaten, it’s easy to titillate and tease desire towards what they like. eventually veer the conversation towards a climax with a pit stop for a quick bite roadside
5/ food is the universal desire everyone who’s working is eventually working for that bread 🍞 everyone who’s playing is only doing so fueled by that very bread. soldiers can’t march on an empty stomach and neither can philosophers talk…
4/ my favorite opener with every cabbie is ‘so have you had something to eat?’ there’s many layers to this but the most important being instant connection, regardless of the individual’s current disposition or mood. everyone bites the bait
3/ having never worn anything more than a pair of boxers or a tee (zoom friendly) for a year now, clothes seem like an armour as heavy as a medieval knight’s iron clad livery. with that i strode into my uber steed and began a cheery chat 💬
2/ it’s quite likely that everyone who wants to meet me in person is just checking if i’m a figment of their imagination 💭 or a non fungible token of value. apparently hallucinations feel more real when pinched and punched
1/ after a bunch of online chats, zoom calls, miro jams and actual phone calls, it was apparently time to take our relation (i don’t call them ships) to the next level. so starbucks decided to host this meeting of minds in the city of beans
