Friday Delight 9:17 PM


We sit in the crowded restaurant chatting as I wait, with increasing anticipation, for the treat to come.

The plate arrives.

Five perfectly shaped balls are arranged on the plate, each nestled in its own paper liner.

My mouth waters with anticipation.

I remove one of the treats from its casing

Grasping it gently, I bring it to my lips and bite;

Teeth sinking through the frozen chocolate shell;

Tongue finding the splendid taste of coffee ice cream held within;

I close my eyes and savor the taste – the chocolate so rich balanced with the taste of the cream and the coffee.

For a moment I dream of spending the spring Friday afternoons eating bonbons…
