grey marble

May 1, 2008


Last night I had dinner with Kit and John. We ate in an Italian restaurant in the east village. I thought I had been there before with Pia and Guillemette, but I couldn't be certain. Then, we had sat in the garden. Last night it was far too cold for that.

At some point in the night our conversation turned to filmstrips. John told stories of the Mormon filmstrips he watched as a child. I remembered the thrill and sense of responsibility I had when given the task to advance the frame at each *beep*.

At one point, the waitress came by to refill our water glasses. John looked up and asked, "Do you remember filmstrips?"

"No," she said. Then walked away.
