One of my cousins recently visited us here in D.C. I hadn't seen him in roughly five years, but we picked up like no time had passed. Our family has a pretty strong bond, and we're all similiar in some important ways, so it makes it really easy for us to connect. We played a lot of games (especially Smash Bros. Brawl!) and had a great time.
He was able to get a recommendation for a Bolivian restaurant that we'd never heard of, and we went there one of the first nights he was in town. It was a little hole-in-the-wall place, with just a handful of tables. The food was authentic Bolivian, which is something I'm sure most people haven't had the opportunity to try. It's too bad, because the food was delicious. If you ever get the chance, eat Bolivian.
While we were out to dinner that night we realized that one of the screws fell out of my glasses. I had a huge argument in court the next morning, so we needed to get a new screw that night. We made our way to Target, and found a small glasses repair kit. Unfortunately, they didn't have any glasses screws in the kit, or anywhere else for sale. They did, however, have a large selection of reading glasses, most of which had glasses screws in them... Anyway, we bought the repair kit, and with the aid of that somewhere along the line we were able to procure a screw for my glasses.
My cousin came to my argument the next morning, which was kind of nice. No one other than my coworkers has had a chance to see me in court yet, and I liked having the feedback. It was especially nice because I won the argument (keeping a man from being wrongfully evicted. Good times.).
It was a really good time. We love having visitors, and people are always welcome at our place. It can get kind of lonely being so distant from so much of our families, and so we really appreciate the time we get when people come to see us. And so I'll end this post with a hearty thanks to my cousin for coming to see us, and a reminder that our door is always open.
There's always something happening
And it's usually quite loud
