My son, Jack, 6, was playing with his 4-year-old, Gabe. He was cute, laid-back, and about 10 years older than me. But then Tall Eric gave me his card and asked me to be in touch. You rely on costly babysitters because there’s no father to step in every other weekend.
Tall Eric and another guy were occupying the nearest bench, so I rested my arms on the fence, watching the kids. Meeting new people can seem impossible and exhausting.
When the bill came, we split it, not thinking twice.
