Scenes from the Sculpture Garden
Sitting on bench at Jazz in the Sculpture Garden provides plenty of entertainment...
All Responses are Not Answers
Woman: I didn't realize there'd be so many people here.
Man: It is a district.
Who Will Watch the Children? (Or Babysitting for Beer)
I shared a bench with a woman who was content to sit and listen to the music. Until a man with two kids in tow showed up and started talking to her. He struck up a conversation with her about general topics and then asked her where she'd gotten her beer. After she told him, he started to get up and asked her if she'd mind watching his kids while he want to get a beer. She seemed to consent, although she did not explicitly say she would.
When he returned, he resumed the conversation, and handed her a beer.
