Two or three times a week, we have these Free Make & Take Projects in the classroom of our retail store – and they draw quite a crowd. But two or three times a year, we have carry-ins – and they draw quite a crowd. Today was one of those days . . .
I had a couple of appointments through the noon hour, so I passed through just as the food was being laid out on tables in the back room. Apparently the main course had not yet arrived, so folks gathered in the classroom as they waited for the gong to be sounded.
This was the crowd just as I arrived – by the time I left, there were twice as many in attendance, and small tables were being set up in strange places to accommodate the overflow. Or as I put it – places to sit if you misbehaved . . .
I did notice that the only male in attendance got a spot very near the serving tables so that he could go to the head of the class once everything was ready . . .
