I realize that you are leaving us soon, and I also decided to leave my hometown on the same day.
Since I had been seriously working and stressing the day before, I decided to take it easy on this Friday. I woke up late, spent too much time showering, fixing my hair, doing my exercise routine.
It was almost the afternoon, when my good friend and mother of my godson, Alexandre, rung me up to see if I could meet with them: Alexandre, Marius, and the happy parents could come nearby. It sounded like a great idea, and before I knew it, they arrived.
Alexandre was very excited to be outdoors -he is ready to follow any stranger if he is heading to the front door of their apartment-.
As a serious and conscientious godmother I took him to some toys, in the form of an air-balloon and a taxi, that become agitated as soon as you put some coins in the right place. But as soon as he perceived some balls with the form of Spiderman on the surface, he managed to get his hands on one of them.
He was so excited, impossible not to buy it! With this acquisition we all went to the café near a place where he could play. Alexandre was in ecstasy: he threw the ball on some of the tables where innocent bystanders were having a drink or coffee. Three adolescents were frightened when the ball almost landed on their head.
Come play with me! Alexandre demanded.
And there I was running up and down, trying to avoid proximity with café clients. It was fun. Spiderman was at his best: he was going up, down, changed hands, feet.
I had a chance to talk to my friend A when P, Alexandre’s father was in charge of the Spiderman ball and the two kids.
We talked about life, friendship, ex-boyfriends, choices, what I look for in a man, growing up, having a purpose.
It was 23.00 when they decided it was time to go. Marius, already asleep didn’t have an objection, but Alexandre was not ready to go home.
Spiderman will come and pay us a visit this evening, I told him. But we need to have our eyes closed, if we want him to really manifest. I was hoping that if he closed his eyes, he would go to sleep.
I am not sure I have given him the right advice.
I’d better keep my eyes open when Spiderman drops by for a visit.
