It’s been a while since we sat down and had a chat…so if we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea, we would talk about the weather, because that is what we do. We would talk about tropical cyclone Gita, which hit Tonga during the week, damaging buildings and causing power outages. About how the storm resulted in a state of emergency in Samoa, and how it is supposed to hit New Zealand on Monday. We would also talk about how warm and humid it has been, and how noisy the cicadas are.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would talk about food. I would tell you about the beautiful red pears and plums I picked up at Commonsense Organics, and some wonderful tomatoes I’ve been enjoying.
I would ask you if you did anything for St Valentine’s Day, and you said no, and I said no me neither, but Karl and I went out for dinner the next day.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would talk about my forthcoming trip to Europe, and how I am just beginning to feel a little excited about it.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would talk about the New Zealand Festival, and what things we were going to, and how there were things that might be interesting for which we haven’t got tickets.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would agree we should meet again soon, and catch up on those little things in life, perhaps enjoy a date scone, but definitely a good gossip.
