I’ll be honest, I had a pretty bad day at work today. The fact that my boss completely changed a project I have been working on for a while, added to the fact that I don’t really care about what I’m doing (I work at an uncreative office job), made my mood plummet.
So, on my way out of work, I called my boyfriend Mike to see if he could meet me. I met Mike at his work, and inevitably, we ended up at The Coffee House on the UCD campus, that sells the best afternoon treats. We both grabbed a nice slab of good old-fashioned chocolate cake.
There’s something about sitting down with someone you can be yourself with, someone that you love, and eating cake. It really shows how everything else isn’t so important. We laughed, talked about little and big things, eating our chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing. It felt luxurious, like we were playing hooky, like we were living the good life– all for under $3.
