Let’s keep her

Robin and Marijka

We laughed and laughed and laughed. We ate and ate and ate. We drank trendy drinks in trendy plastic glasses. We played and played and played.

I knew her visit would be too short. Maybe it was a covert attempt to make her stay longer. When we dropped her off at the airport yesterday, she only had 45 minutes to catch her plane. Minutes after saying our goodbyes the phone rang, “I’ve missed my flight, come pick me up.” Yay! One more night of game playing, food eating and wine drinking.

This morning she took off for real, leaving behind the cool air and many smiles.

  2. Carcassonne is a great game! We didn’t play it over the weekend because it isn’t Miss Robin’s favorite.

  3. visiting friends are great. i might need to postpone my trip until after I take my prelim exams which is in january. but after that grad students are given permission to totally slack off for like 2 months. or, should i say, we give ourselves permission to slack off for like 2 months.
