Academic Love Affair

Looking forward to reading tomorrow at Brewed Awakenings Cafein Saline. Until then, a memory of another much beloved cafe... Eastern Accents Bakery

Academic Love Affair

Two Asian American girlfriends sit in the window at Eastern Accents, discussing their latest loves over laptops and lattes. One friend squeals with delight while showing off the latest email from “him,” knocking over the small pile of lit books precariously perched on the round table when spinning her laptop back around. The other one adjusts her academicky black-rimmed glasses skeptically, “This is the nerdiest love affair I ever heard of. You know, normal people send each other flowers. You two send each other your essays!”
