A bitch is starting to get excited about my trip to Cambridge Mass for WAM! next month!
My ass hasn’t been back to Cambridge since the mid-1990’s (wince).
Oh, but I remember it as if it were yesterday (sigh).
Shark-Fu’s memories of Cambridge Mass…
The Tasty Sandwich Shop…
Yes, I know it is gone now.
But C-Money and this bitch had more than one eventful meal at The Nasty…cough...I mean, The Tasty.
Come to think of it, I think the overnight cook at The Tasty can take credit for explaining the historical importance of the Tet Offensive to me.
Mmmhmmm...I bet no one’s breaking down the Vietnam War over at Abercrombie & Fitch!
The Au Bon Pain in Harvard Square…
A bitch was beyond broke whilst at college and a pastry from Au Bon Pain was a real treat.
Many a weekend, I’d stroll to Au Bon Pain on my way to visit C-Money and score a cheese Danish-esque portion of pastry-based joy.
Hell, that was almost as much fun as raiding the dining hall at C-Money’s dorm.
Ah, the memories!
A bitch had a minified college breakdown and ended up sleeping on the couch in C-Money’s dorm room for a few months. It’s a long story….mayhap I’ll tell it sometime, but not now.
Anyhoo, I latched onto the habit of going to Christy’s Market and shooting the shit with the staff and then buying a cinnamon doughnut with a large grape soda on the side. Day after day after day…the same thing. The thing is I didn’t notice the habit until one of C-Money’s roommates came home bearing gifts of doughnut and grape soda for me!
Shit, I’ve always been a wee bit off.
Damn, I'll have to find time for a Christy's run during the conference.
Lawd, I wonder if Christy’s is still there!
Motherfucking gentrification is destroying my youthful memories one by one…
