I was happy to be of some small service in the erecting of the thing, and you know? I totally got all that, without even being able to stay and enjoy the pizza and the family and the Alouette.
Curiously, although American, I don't much enjoy DIY projects (except as they relate to making music), and I kind of do enjoy being lost. But of course, I'm all about being unrooted in life, and floating down the stream, merrily merrily, and all that.
But it's nice once in a while to latch onto someone's branch as you float by, catch up, and exchange hugs before floating on.
