This spring I met somebody…somebody special. But we’re both New Yorkers and these days you have to work almost 24/7 to keep a job and keep your head above water. We like each other a lot but there’s been almost no time to do things like, well, date. So what has resulted is a developing relationship on an emotional level without the nuts and bolts of dating. How’s that? Well she’s a bartender at a craft beer bar and I’m the craft beer buyer for a fancy grocery store and a veteran NYC barfly. In other words we have lots to talk about when we’re not just dreamily gazing into each other’s eyes. In addition, I cook for her since she’s a foodie and rarely gets to eat home cooked meals. It was a way of proving that I was more than just a regular customer. I started writing about it a few weeks ago, and here are the installments so far.
It begins with chili
It continues with craft beer
Then we muse about the new middle age
Then I question my manhood relative to her potential expectations
Episode 5 is all about cooking
Episode 6 is about an unlikely source of wisdom in this adventure, finance bros
In Episode 7 we finally plan our first date.
In Episode 8, I weather the Aftermath.
In Episode 9, We deal with the Aftermath.
Three more episodes are written and this could go 20 or 30. Ultimately, it’s about food, love, craft beer, NYC 2017 and life these days.
