Sometimes, when you least expect it, new experiences and new people come your way. In these situations, people can do one of two things.
1- get nervous, and quickly try to make the situation more comfortable by doing "normal" things.2- embrace the situation and be excited at the chance to try something new.
Such was the case for me on Friday and Saturday.
I got a call Friday evening from a man who had supposedly found my credit card. I didn't even know it was missing and how did he get my phone number?
I looked around and sure enough, my card was gone. Weird.
So, I could do one of two things-
1- call my credit card company, cancel my card, hope the guy never calls me again, and call it good.
2- call the man back, meet him, get my card back, and hope he has not bought anything with it.
I chose #2...the more uncomfortable (for me) choice.
Turns out, I made the right choice.
We met at a coffee/tea place I NEVER go in Boulder, The Tea House. I ordered something I had never tried (also uncomfortable for me), and I met a really nice man who had great stories to tell and made for nice conversation. I got my card back, and made a new friend. It was a great, though somewhat uncomfortable at times, experience.
The tea I ordered (a "display" tea), some kind of white jasmine tea, opened up and looked like a flower at the end.
Though interesting, it was quite good.
Because I've done it in my past two posts, here's a dang cute picture of The "Moe" Dog, Jackson.
