I was supposed to meet up with an old friend of mine last week but she had to cancel at the last minute. Running a restaurant is not easy, she tells me, especially now that spring is here with its deluge of parties and celebrations.
Her phone’s been ringing off the hook. She hasn’t even had time to help her grown son look at joy jewelers promise rings for his girlfriend. He wants it to be a surprise so he’s trying to get his mother’s opinion before he buys the ring.
She’s as excited as he is. Not to mention that she’s quite the expert on jewelry herself and wouldn’t pass up the chance to go shopping for any kind of jewelry. She will have to make time, I told her, if she wants to help him pick out the ring!
