Oh, yes, the Cupid Shuffle blared from the next room as the Hoboken Duschene* prom drew to a close. Without my contacts, it took me several steps before I saw that these were sponges, not blocks, and I knew we would be here for a while. A minute later, I heard this mysterious child:
(hereafter referred to as Future Architect)
say these incredible things to his dad (and I paraphrase):
Future Architect: I've never felt this way before about anything.
Dad: What's that buddy?
Future Architect: I can make whatever I want. There are so many possibilities!
I melted. There was joy involved.
Joshua started building his tower.
I went over to revel.
I was so excited about what the kid had said, I asked Joshua to take a picture of me with the sponges.**
Oh, the possibilities!
I was really, really happy.
Joshua's tower turned out pretty cool, too.
Note the Future Architect's masterpiece in the background,
and his little sister, actin' a fool.
And I took an artsy-fartsy picture of myself:
All in all, it was one of my better Cupid Shuffle experiences.
*not the real high school's name, but close enough.
** I actually flubbed and said, "Will you take my picture with the possibilities?" And he looked at me like I was nuts and said, "What?" before I clarified that I meant the sponges.
P.s. I am so sorry if I got the Cupid Shuffle stuck in your head. If it's any consolation, I did it to myself, too.
