We met at Caspian Grill.

“Could we have some must-khiar as an appetizer?” I asked.

She glanced up. “The yogurt and cucumber?”

“Yes please.”

After Kelley and Gregg and Trudy, I ordered the Koobideh and rice. 

She glanced up. “The K2?” 

“Yes please.”

“You like using the names,” she said.

I agreed. She smiled.

The food was awesome. And the table talk about their trip to Colorado and my upcoming dive into teaching was equally awesome. And the dessert at their house down the street (where it was raining) was also awesome.

It was an altogether awesome evening.

This morning, we woke to rain. Here. In southwest Austin, rain. Imagine that. Awesome!
