sweet as pie
I’m loyal to the coffee shop because its loyal to me. When my great friend Toni said she was here, as in, here in New York there were a half dozen necessary things to-do. She didn’t let me off the hook. Her physical presence on my sister coast propelled me to do what coffee shops make room for – coexist around a table talking about anything and nothing.
Over hot this and iced that and shared seasonal fruit pie, the chatter, hovering like the escaped smell of just right pie crust, was a sweet reminder of how important a coffee date is, still is, not just to save others but to be saved too.
