Friday

She waves to me from her corner. I stare at her unwilling to move. I return the wave, but still stay put. I make a face, yuck. Why, I'm not sure, but yuck. She returns my face and yells "fine! stay there!" I continue with my conversation, being the attentive listener. She moves into view and puts her finger to her lips. Shhhh! Don't say a word, remember the last time. I offer little to the conversation with the exception of the nod of my head. She sits at her table, raises her coffee cup to me in celebration of my listening to her. I leave my companions on at their table. They barely notice my departure. Does anyone really remember me? Who was that?
