The candidate offered to share a beer with me, which was odd, because I thought his faith forbid him from drinking alcohol.
The President was behaving somewhat clownish at the groundbreaking for a community food center. He had a set of enormous, red cafeteria forks wrapped in plastic he was trying to extricate. He used them to "break ground."
Later, my son and a number of his friends were all playing together on a public playground, which looked more like a series of roots and tree stumps, they just kind of clambered to the top and had great fun "falling" back down.
There was also indoor bowling, which was more like grown-ups rolling rubber balls at other rubber balls. I admonished this sulky guy who refused to play well. He had been ashamed of not being able to bowl, but the game was boring him.
