Food for Thought

Oct 8, 2009

As I’ve pointed out before, Nicole’s Gourmet Foods is a fantastic spot for both dishing and noshing, offering a cozy outdoor setting for conversation and a great selection of yummy French goodies. It’s such an inviting spot that when I walk by during off hours and look at those empty chairs, I imagine all the incredible My Dinner with Andre-type discussions I might have there. In fact, I’ve envisioned these scenarios enough that now when I walk by it’s as if I’m actually remembering these imaginary conversations. (I’ll never forget that great one about quantum physics I had with Michio Kaku and the ghost of Truffaut…)

Like Dali said, “The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant.”

My flights of fancy may be artificial, but Nicole’s is the real deal.
