people who come to visit you at your restaurant, even though your restaurant is really expensive, and the stereo has neil diamond and david gray on rotation, and everything is cooked in butter.

people who wait around until you get off work so that you can all go together to metropol, and sit in the booths and watch the mick jagger lookalike, and point at people who are dancing, and dance.

i am wearing my cream-colored see-through shirt, which i’ve never worn before.  and lipstick, and my hair up, and i feel truly pretty for the first time in a long time.

and slow ride comes on, and we dance.
and michael jackson comes on, and we dance.
and omd comes on, and we dance.

and apparently, the alison dance is perfectly suited to michael jackson.  who knew?

i’m so glad you’re back.
