Missing you makes me hungry

Today I sat alone in a coffee shop writing my friend Noah, who left for Argentina on Tuesday. I love Noah a lot, and missing him makes me think of avocados. Avocado and Kamboucha picnics in Peace Park, how he was in the habit of collecting the pits maybe to make a necklace, or contemplating whether eating enough of them would turn you green. But Noah is not the only subject of my gastronomic memory. When I think of SJ I think of a good cup of coffee and cranberry orange oatmeal cookies. And her strange aversion to the smell of blueberries. Whenever Tim leaves I remember our times in the kitchen making “peasant food,” and I think about making him dinner when I get real lonely
