How to Have A Lovely Saturday

First you get on a bus, but not just any bus, the oh-so-comfy and affordable Red Arrow express, to go to a different city to meet a dear friend for lunch.

Have lunch, and a long, serious discussion. Stay at the restaurant for more than a few hours.

Walk across the parking lot to a Starbucks, grab a table and have this conversation:

"Well we could try mints and gum."

"There might not be 40 pieces of gum in this package, though."

"Excuse me, are these mints all the same colour?"

The cashier finally has to ask. "What sort of game are you playing?"

"well we have an expansion pak and she" pointing "remembered the cards but not the trains."

"and I'm from Calgary and she's from BigOntarioCity, so there's no going home to get them."

Play Ticket To Ride, the Switzerland edition for about three hours, wander back to the bus, stopping to buy a salad to eat on the bus, and a weighty volume of the poetry of Langston Hughes.

And the gum was too big, but the mints worked just fine.
