Love & Passion{fruit}

(I am about to share with you a page from my diary. I never do this, but it's so special that I think you should get to read it.) 

July 2nd, 2012
Starbucks, Toronto

I think I am witnessing the beginning of a new relationship. :) I was here a few hours ago reading with a yummy vanilla latté, and I noticed a man and a woman sitting at adjacent tables talking. He is in his late 40s, and has the kindest eyes and a receding hairline. She is younger, though only slightly. She is Asian, with silky hair brushing her shoulders and noticeable laugh lines vouching for her happy personality. They were both sipping the remaining drops of their passion fruit iced teas, their chairs turned awkwardly to face each other. It made me smile. :)

Now, 3 hours later, I have returned for yet another vanilla latté (I guess my secret addiction is out now...), and they are sitting at one table, which is cluttered with empty cups of what was presumably passion fruit iced tea, and I can hear them sharing stories of their college days and hopes for the future. There is something undeniably comforting and heartwarming about witnessing two grown adults reduced to the nervous flirting and chit chat of pre-teens. I love it. 

And... They just left. Together. :) 


  1. Awww, how romantic! That must have been so cool to have witnessed all of that! :)
