I’ve forgotten how to play.

I distinctly remember when I was a kid, when I’d get together with my friends, we’d just play. Our parents would get together maybe and just leave us alone to play, and we would.

I can’t do that at all anymore. When I’m with someone, I need context for us being together if that makes any sense. Like, we can go out for dinner or coffee and talk. Else we have to be doing something together. Playing video games. Card games. Watching a movie. Or doing whatever. Anything that provides context for getting together.

But it wasn’t like that when I was a kid. Didn’t matter where we were or for what reason, at any moment we could just play together. I dunno, I just kind of wish I could remember how I did that.
