delighted to see the little yellow key in my p.o. box, i knew an unexpected package was moments away. opening the 2'x2'x3' "train locker", i was surprised to see a simple manila envelope staring back at me.
walking back to my apartment, i shook the envelope with trepidation since this friend often peppers her letter with glitter or spangles of unknown genus. sure enough, this shook with tell-tail signs of "carpet-dirtiers".
inside was a beautiful macaroni scene of a hammock between two palms by the ocean.... and just as enjoyable was the little sign on the front, which the USPS actually headed.... reading: macaroni card. please hand stamp.
i am in love. seriously.
i ate at cosmos [downtown.msp :: $$$$$$$$]
i'm in love with the frosted glass ambiance.
i'm in love with the attentive staff [a toned-down andy dick sporting businessman hair]
i'm in love with the intermezzos they surprised me with between courses.
i'm in love with the spice garden they braised into my lamb.
i'm in love with the crunch of dark chocolate against a smooth raspberry sorbet.
i loved how she challenged me [raspberry & beet]
i loved how she held me.
thankfully, i'm no stranger to paying for love.
