Dinner with Eleanor

E’s going to Paris for the summer to be an RA (resident advisor) in a dorm in an exchange program; this will be her 4th trip to France–not bad for a girl from San Jose, CA now living in New York.
We got together to have dinner in the city (NY); this was our chance to meet up–we hadn’t seen one another since March.
Of course, it was fun, it’s always fun– E is one of the great people of the world and the fact she started out as a friend of my son’s doesn’t mean we don’t have a great time together, it just means our friendship has that greatmulti-generational fillip of being honorary members of one another’s family.
Have a great trip, my friend–and drink some wine for me.
