Unexpected Guest

We spent tonight with an old friend.  We were supposed to be at a Class Potluck – a parents only get together Sister’s school does each year.  It’s a great idea really and would have been a worthy use of our time but K. dropped by unexpectedly and since friends you know invariably outrank those you don’t we spent the evening with him instead.  The conversation was easy and light. I think we laughed about as much as we talked.  We ended at Te Kei’s eating bread pudding and puzzling out our fortunes. Mine – “Your eyes will soon be sparking, keep them open.”  Good advice to be sure… if one’s eyes are sparking… but what does it mean?!?
