It is a Friday night. My best friend, Darien Robertson, and I have made plans to meet-up at one of our treasured spots to catch-up about the happenings in our lives. Upon opening the doors of Café Blue, I am instantly reminded of comfort, coffee and camaraderie.
I am thrilled to see Darien. Our schedules sometimes clash, with Darien being a professional photographer and me working on a multiplicity of projects. I am always elated when we get to hang out.
The first order of business though, is to order beverages.
Some like it hot, Some like it cold
My eyes tend to stray to the cold drinks section of the Café Blue menu. Usually, I order the Mochaccino however, tonight I feel like trying something new so, I get a Blueccino. This is delicious by the way. Darien, on the other hand, typically orders the hot beverage; a medium Mocha to be exact.
We then seat ourselves and dive into conversation. The smoothing music that plays in the background helps with the ambiance and builds a cozy vibe.
Mid-conversation, we are greeted with the drinks we ordered. We issue our thanks to the gracious lady that provided them.
Darien and I then proceed with our conversation. We share our immediate goals, jokes and things that we find interesting.
Time truly flies when you are in good company. Before we know it, it is closing time.
With memories of tonight’s proceedings intact, we bid the café a farewell until another Friday when it will all happen again.
