A moment on Sunday, February 27, 2022 at 6:12:32 PM

I’m sitting at a coffee shop. The second one for the day. The family is at church. I have been walking with Lola to help her fall asleep but I’m tired from the +7 miles I ran this morning.

It’s noon and I haven’t had anything more than a flat white all day. We have plans to go to a shawarma place after church but my body wants calories now. I have 45 minutes to keep Lola happy. It’s wet outside and I don’t care to walk any longer to fill the time.

We saw this elegant coffee shop last week. The shop felt too elegant for our family lunch so we skipped it. Now that I’m on my own, I go in. I get another flat white and alfajor. It had a dark dulce de leech that is irresistible in my present state.

The coffee is too hot and too foamy. The alfajor is incredible. Top 3 I’ve had in Buenos Aires. Lola is fading. It’s nice to sit with her comfortably laying her head on my chest. She dozes off as I enjoy slowness.

The shop has an eclectic contemporary mix on. I enjoy Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Know and then Olivia Rodrigo’s good 4 u. Lola has been a psychic vampire lately. This quiet, content Lola makes me happy.
