Cauliflower Steak

I went to college yesterday.

Specifically, I went to my alma mater for a conference.

Let me tell you, I was basically Grizabella in a ragged Cats costume belting “Memories” at the top of my lungs.

I was just flooded with them! I walked around and stood in some of the spots that built me. Like the spot in the English building where I sat eating my umpteenth bagel of the day and saw Garrett for the first time and thought that he looked buff and mean. Or the spot I stood in when I told my friend I was going on a date with Garrett and she was like, “OMG no do not do that I went to high school with him & he is the worst!” And the spot on the quad I stood on after Garrett convinced me to be a delinquent, leave physics class and meet him for our first public smooch.

One day there will be a plaque at that school commemorating this love story.
