The night turned into the four of us sitting around the kitchen table reading our own poetry or writing to each other for at least an hour. It then turned into us talking about anything and everything for several more hours, adding another friend around 1 am and talking some more. Finally around 4 am we hunkered down in the living room to watch Shrek 4 where I ended up falling asleep shortly after the opening credits.
It was a great night.
Don't be an ogre; be open to change! Plans can be a lot of fun, but when you let yourself deviate every once in a while, you might surprise yourself with something really, really beautiful.
"Well, folks, it looks like we're up chocolate creek without a popsicle stick." -Gingy, Shrek 2
