The Soup Lady had every intention of ordering soup tonight. The soup
d'jour at the restaurant where we dined tonight was Loaded Baked Potato
Soup, and it was probably great because by 6:30 pm , there was none left.
None of the other soups sounded like they'd be any thing to write home about, so I got a salad instead. To make up for the crushing disappointment you must be feeling now, I will entertain you by repeating a fragment of a conversation that I overheard from the next table:
He: mumble mumble mumble those two animals in front of it. She: Those are lions.
He: The New York Public library?
She: Yes. And do you know - they have names. And their
names are Patience and Fortitude.
He: Which one is Patience?
She: Patience is the one on the left.
He: How did you know that?
She: mumble mumble mumble
Life is so interesting, isn't it, dears?
