I don’t know if Blaine and Christine are a couple, or if it’s serious and all that other stuff that others might ask. I didn’t see any rings on their fingers, so I didn’t ask. I did learn, by asking, that he lives just down the street, and walks to the park to exercise everyday. Due to some construction, the two decided to take a new route to the park. And that’s how come we met.
Most of what we shared was small talk. Light chit-chat, you might say. It was the kind of conversation that is often reserved for someone who is standing in line at a popular Manhatten deli waiting to pick-up an order. But still, we were engaged; at least as far as listening and sharing our favorite food joints in the neighborhood.
Even though it was quick and still, it was nice to meet a neighbor. And it was also nice to be able to introduce him to Abraham who makes a wonderful chicken burrito, some of the best and freshest juices in the world, and the best ceviche I’ve tasted. But unfortunately for Blaine he doesn’t make a turkey sandwich despite what the sign might suggest.
