Australia - Land of Griff
Last night I went to a joint birthday party held by a couple of high-school friends, Jordan and Andrew. The even was held at Jordan's place because it has become a routine spot for gatheirngs over the years due to his spacious backyard and a garage that's separate from the main house.
For a while I was worried the evening would degenerate into a series of group conversations filled with flurries of half-finished anecdotes, each one being forgotten part-way through or interrupted with a new tangent and a life of its own. All the while you and the only other sober person are periodically signalling each other like this
.Then my good friend Griff showed up.
It was a genuine surprise ...
