Happy Birthday Gaia!

Last year I had the pleasure of meeting this lovely lady while I was attempting large-scale procrastination by going to "study" at a coffee shop in Greenpoint.

While sitting at my table I noticed, as those who procrastinate always notice, an opportunity for distraction and conversation. The lovely lady at the other table was practically overflowing with smiles and her boots, well her boots were just a wonder in themselves.

So the conversation began and my smile began to overflow too when her thick-as-tar Italian accent became all-too apparent as she bravely traversed the delicacies of the English language.

I loved meeting Miss Gaia and I left feeling as though perhaps I should broaden my sphere of procrastination, as who knows how many charming, beaming, Italians wait at the next coffee shop desperate to tell me how they just came to South Africa and stayed because "South Africa, she is beautiful".

Happy Birthday Miss Gaia! I hope you have a beautiful day!


  1. I could be your Mel! But I won't wait outside your house!!! Wait, where do you live?

  2. Hahaha! I've been waiting for someone to say that for so long!


Share the loooove!
