Friday Night with Friends

October 5th, 2007

If I had to pick the happiest times in my life it would be, hands-down, dinner with friends. Sit-down dinner parties, spur-of-the-moment dinner out, grab-a-root-and-growl potluck dinners…I love a table crowded with food, wine bottles, sparkling water, cloth napkins, shouting, laughing, arguing, heads leaning intently toward each other, hands flying and gesturing, Miles Davis in the background, bread dipped in olive oil and parmesan, and the sense that you are wringing the juice out of every single minute and that you will never forget this candle-lit moment in time.

    I couldn’t agree more with this! Some of my fondest memories have been dinner/drinks (and of course the neverending laughs) with friends.
