Taking it Easy

Like I have it hard (I don’t).  But I haven’t felt well the past week, although today I started to feel better so I went to the gym after meeting a detective friend for breakfast.  Our place is decorated for Halloween, Ukrainian food joint style.  It says “Trick or Borscht” if you’re having trouble reading it.  Of course I thought, “This is one of the places we used to go for food after hearing music at CBGB’s.”  Which led to remembering that The Leisure Unit’s (Aly’s band) used to play there.  But there was another place we went to just as much, another Ukrainian food place, which has been closed for many years now.  I can’t remember the name.  What was the name??  It was only a few blocks away.  (This is Veselka.)  Oh God.  And so it begins.

UPDATE:  Melinda just saved me from going out of my mind.  It was the Kiev.  Thank you, Melinda.

  1. Glad you’re feeling better, and very sorry about your friend. I can’t imagine losing one of my ’80s buds, many of whom remain my closest friends today.
