So what in the world are you doing, anyway?

The background story

on
July 7, 2016

“Well there goes my dancing partner”, a disgruntled friend mumbled under his breath. It was Thursday night, our weekly go-climbing-then-go-dancing night, but this week there was a surprise. My friend had invited John along, not knowing we knew each other.

I hadn’t seen John in three years. We had climbed…
