I’m looking forward to the 12th? (15th? something like that) annual Soup Bowl Party.
It started with a friend’s (at the time) little boy asking another of our friends if they were having a party for this Soup Bowl he kept hearing about. He said: “We weren’t, but that sounds like a great idea, let’s do it!”
Folks bring their favorite soup, or something else, or just show up. The game is on in the other room, but most of us don’t care. A lot of folks that have moved in and out of the neighborhood over the years come back for the Soup Bowl Party, even if it’s just to say hello for a few minutes, and that’s always fun.
So now we’re a decade plus into the tradition, and the little boy is 17 or 18 now. We still thank him every year for starting the party. Thanks Josh!
