I was in the magical and bustling city of Paris last week on a business trip, and I was invited to dinner at a friend’s house. I longed to spend time with my friends because there was nothing better than chatting, laughing, eating, and drinking with my friends in a city like Paris. Dinner was as I expected (and more) – there was enough soul food to keep the stomach full and warm, soft drinks on the tongue, deep laughter in the stomach, good smiles, and simple friendships. But the highlight of this beautiful, starry night was the game!
While my mouth was full of saliva and sweets, my friends announced that it was time for their favorite card game “True or Trial”. But to my surprise, the version of this famous game we played was very thoughtful, mature and unlike any other, I have ever known. There have been sensible and thought-provoking questions such as “Who are you”? and “have you ever dreamed of running away” All six adults including me chose a card and what started as a game turned out to be “knowing-and-getting-better.”
The conversation has shifted from food, children, and politics to more in-depth topics that would not have made sense if it were not for dinner with friends you know like the palm of your hand. I learned that you can buy these beautiful cards at Colette and if you live in Europe, you can find them at an online store called Souvenir By. Yes, I got my assignment at Colette because they are my favorite new gifts that I can give. The night in Paris is one of the best memories of my life and I plan to live it again whenever I can with a lot of my cards (I doubt they will dress me up or get tired over time).
