Synergy, Law of Attraction, Or Just Birthday Luck...
This morning I headed out to breakfast with one of my oldest friends. We have a birthday breakfast thing, with out our kids. Just the two of us and good food, oh and plenty of conversation. But it was such a great time I am thinking twice a year is a travesty, that maybe we need to have the birthday outing every month.
As we strolled into the South Side Walnut Cafe this morning in Boulder, we didn't find a wait and were seated promptly. Luck was on our side. I ordered the Eggs Marcos with bacon, cream cheese, and cheddar, a side of rye toast and fruit. You can't really go wrong with that combination. They serve a wonderful local Chai Tea at the cafe as well, Bhakti Chai, made right here in Boulder. Oh wait, lets not be modest, it may be the best Chai I've ever had, or pretty darn close to it. If you're a chai fanatic, check it out.
Then the magic just kept on happening.
Our waitress comes over singing Happy Birthday to me. To my embarrassment, thank you very much. But she placed this gorgeous piece of cake in front of me. Today's "Birthday Cake of the Day" flavor, just happened to be Chai. I thought to myself, is this for real because I felt like I was dreaming. The cake was beautiful, divine, and quite possibly a slice of heaven. As I am eating my meal simultaneously with cake, a Coldplay song came over the speakers.
Splendid. Ear to ear smiles. Aging, it's not that bad after all.
