Yesterday, June 22, was the anniversary of the day Jeff and I met. For some of you who may not know, we met in China. My friend and I were visiting on a 2-week trip, and Jeff had just moved to the city. That day, he took my friend and me to see the beautiful glacier in the city where we lived there. It was a long, hard walk to the top, and after we caught our breath and realized that we weren’t actually going to catch a glimpse of the glacier, due to the massive fog, Jeff opened up his backpack and gave us each a Snicker’s bar and a mini can of Pringles, explaining that we’d need an energy boost because of how hard we had just worked our bodies.
After showing us around town, we ate at a local “restaurant” called “La Mu’s”, where we had chocolate-banana milkshakes for dessert. Well, as close as you can get to chocolate-banana milkshakes.
So, in honor of that special day 7 years ago, I made fried rice for supper tonight, and chocolate-banana milkshakes for dessert. And for Jeff’s lunch tomorrow, I packed a Snicker’s bar, and some pizza-flavored Pringles. It’s the little things.
