My long night shift last Tuesday and then a doctor´s schedule right after my shift had me thinking about loosening up today. With last-minute notice, I asked a long time friend, Therese to have lunch with me. After several attempts of meeting each other we both finally had time to catch up this afternoon.
We started at a snug coffee bar. Talked about our work and our lives in helping others. Therese ordered an iced coffee (I guess) and lemon tea for me. It was a comfy place with few customers enjoying the place with a book or a pen & notebook with. The unique thing about the café is, it´s connected to a bookstore. Coffee + books is always a good combo.
And then we did some window and shopping, the best thing about going out aside from food of course. One of the best (and also a bit risky) ways of unwinding. We thought TGIF would be a good place to continue the substantial conversation. Here comes our food…
The food was delightful and the service cannot be better. The only whine we had was the sauce. We had same sauce for everything!
I had two cocktails (Sangria & Barbados Rum) and Therese had Barbados Rum plus a lemonade. I would be coming again BUT for the cocktails. We were told the restau will be having a HAPPY HOUR from (this) Sunday onwards! We wanted to stay but there are other obligations at home waiting!
It is refreshing having someone to talk to, with substance. Anyone have their own versions of good conversation and that’s where this day is different. It´s a good company with good things to talked about; academic plans and career goals; work related motivations stories… an open two-way conversation. Thank you Therese, you are a woman with substance!
