My colleague, Sonya, and her husband, Cliff, had me over for pork chops last night. Having bought a buy one, get two free, sac of potatoes, I chose to make creamed potatoes as my cover dish. Earlier this week, I read her book, COVER ME, and loved the wit and pace in which she writes. We are both new faculty to Fairfield and have bonded over a few professional training sessions.
She's a year older and Cliff is a year younger, but it all works out....Latethirtypostforty somethings who found themselves at the same school and living in the same town, all with interests in writing. We talked about books, aging, moving to Connecticut, domestic life, and what comes next.
It's nice having acquaintances in the area to say hello to now and again.
