My New Friend

This is my new friend. I met him at the gaming shop where Max plays Magic the Gathering.

Neither Larry or I play the game,  it was something he learned from a friend. We found a gaming shop, FTW Games, that has Magic tourneys most Fridays and take turns driving Max and sitting around while he plays. It is not terribly close to home, but has a really nice crowd and the owners are very friendly.

The first time I went I met my new friend whom I christened Bob. Bob just quietly stands in the corner, probably looking for droids. Fortunately my droid  based phone is not the one he is looking for and I can text friends and goof off to my heart's content. Along with a book, I am able to entertain myself for the four hours I'm there. Too bad Bob is just a shell of a man and as a result not one for conversation.

I just wish I had a better seat than the hard wooden stool that is in Bob's corner.

"You don't need to see his identification. These are not the droids you're looking for. He can go about his business. Move along".
