A friend of ours is moving to Chicago so we met him downtown at his new apartment. We rode the train in. Which you would think we would do often but we don’t. We rarely ever go to the city.

It was a pleasant experience. A beautiful day. Full of beautiful people and lots of unfamiliar smells.

I really wanted to go up to some people and be like, “wow, you are beautiful.”
We also almost got in a physical collision with a mentally ill woman who was sitting on the ground at the top of the CTA escalator.
And of course there was awkward staring from some people. Yet I could barely keep my eyes off some people because of how curious they seemed.

Ah, city adventures. Can’t wait to have more of them. Praise God for our friend moving here so we are more frequently pulled out of our north shore bubble.
