I met a friend for coffee yesterday morning, only that would be a misnomer because she is not a fan and it was so warm we both needed one, so we opted for a tea-over-ice. I guess that would be "iced tea" if we weren't in one of those gourmet kind of places, which we were, finally, both of us at the same one. Because you know, it has dawned on me that a coffee place on every corner is sometimes just way too many opportunities to feel stood up, only to realize that perhaps it is the other coffee place in that other center with the grocery store and so on and so forth. And we are both recovering from a little "voted off the island" situation anyway, so being on the verge of another abandonment can feel worse paying $4.00 for "tea over ice".
We took a real step of faith in asking the 3 darlings behind the counter what their favorite tea-over-ice was and with 3 darlingly different answers we opted for passion fruit or something, ok maybe tropical fruit. Which in retrospect begs the question "really, tea made with fruit? wouldn't that be juice or punch?" Oh, you can't charge $4.00 for punch, ok...tea it is then! I mean we are in a recession right, so who has $4.00 for mere punch, duh!
Anyway, after dodging the paparazzi...another story...my co-star and I sat near the window and had such a fine morning of girl talk. Neither of us cried, so we must not have covered everything, but let me just say, there is nothing better than a woman's heart when you're on to such things as love and romance and reality TV shows! D is patient mind you, but apparently he thinks that ESPN is about as REAL as television ought to get.
So it took a little estrogen and "tea over ice" to decide that TLC would have a ginormous following if Jon and Kate would go to counseling instead of "learning to do new things" and America could fall in love with a couple actually working things out. We mean, for crying out loud, that would be something different and I know you'd all be tuning in and bloggers everywhere would be writing about it! TLC are you listening?
Anyway, it was a great morning and with D working so much and the Pitcher just passing through and then Dot and the Deeds still in Colorado... it was just a great morning and I left thinking..."I believe that girlfriend is very possibly Ventura's best kept secret!(VBKS)"
Soon enough the paparazzi will be on to our elusive coffee bar tricks and well the secret will be out. For now, if you see a couple of girl's who look like us, criss crossing on the streets between one coffee place and the other, with a look of near abandoment, just know that it could be us or a couple of decoy's just to protect... well the privacy of VBKS!
