I Never Thought I’d Come Back From That One

Daily Prompt  Use It or Lose It – Write about anything you’d like, but make sure the post includes this sentence: “I thought we’d never come back from that one.”

Steak and Thai Noodle Salad, cheese garlic bread and a Cosmo

The first sip was ambrosia. The first bite was savory, crunchy, smooth, a little bit tangy and absolutely exquisite. Each additional forkful was a burst of heaven.  My daughter and I were having lunch at Houston’s in Atlanta.  She ordered Cosmos (made with Tito’s vodka, of course) while we studied the menu and then she recommended the Steak and Thai Noodle salad.  I have never tasted quite that combination of flavors … my palate wept with pleasure.  And the Cosmo was pretty damn good, too.

And then we talked.  And we talked.  And we talked – about the past (I thought we’d never come back from that one), the present and the future.  Remember when you were young and could talk to your best friend all day about anything and everything? Well, that’s what it was like and what a delight to realize that I was, in fact, having lunch with my best friend.*

*Note to my son:  No, Matt, that does not mean that I like your sister better.
