Small Stone #11

Dinner this evening with friends.

The restaurant played host to a pre-Father/Daughter Dance dinner. Several tables of young girls, their fathers seated together at other tables. The girls, excited, excitable, in constant motion.

Further away, another table. Here the girls were already young women, most dressed formally in 'a little black number'.

Their fathers shared their table. Many of them were talking sports amongst themselves. The young women — on their phones.


  1. The ever present phone during a meal. Sad.

    1. Yes, indeed, Laura. Though, in fairness, the fathers were lost in their own world also.
