Is a perfect game show of
Love and tragedy.

Balsamic vignettes #11

He chats online with the woman of his dreams. She caresses his ego with treacle words and listens to his pain. She understands.

He makes a surprise trip to see her, anticipating her glee.

He flies from Switzerland. Jetlagged, he calls her from the airport to meet him.

She’s taken aback. She hangs up.
He calls again, but she lets it ring out.

The tourist police look to us and say, “He didn’t lose his credit cards, or his luggage. He’s lost his love, and there’s not much we can do.”

Stagger Lee’s, Fitzroy

We made the journey out of the CBD to Fitzroy, in search of the renowned Stagger Lee’s, which did not disappoint.
We were made to feel very welcome by attentive and hospitable staff. The coffee was excellent- I had a flat white and was disappointed that I didn’t get a chance to try their cold drip coffee, I’ll have to come back. The coffee was strong and fragrant, while my friend’s juice was refreshing and light.

I had the burger; a Black Angus shin patty cooked medium, bacon, American mustard, ketchup, aioli, pickles and cheddar served with bacon croquettes and greens. It was so good, so filling and the sauce was finger-lickin’ tasty.
My vegetarian friends where spoilt for choice, which is such a positive- we were very thankful to find a cafe that was tasty, fullsome and accommodating to all dietary requirements.
