My friend Jeremy from law school arrived yesterday for a visit. I like titles. Jeremy from Law School. It differentiates him from Jeremy from a Long Time Ago as well as provides the listener with the subtle hint that I WENT TO LAW SCHOOL…I MIGHT BE SMART.
Jeremy has now only been here 24 hours and is in true form. His first stop was the Cabinet War Rooms to soak in some WWII history followed by a look for the Winston Churchill Museum and then a visit to Parliament to see the lively floor debates. Some people might stop at a pub first or see Big Ben. Not Jeremy. Straight to history and government and then when we came home weary from work, he spent a great deal of time telling us about all the various articles in New Yorker and The Atlantic that we must read. And brought us a supply. This is the Jeremy that I love. The one that is so excited by annoying things like reading and learning. Although, as I often mention to him- I beat him by 2 points on the NY Bar Exam. Sometimes, laziness prevails.
In more American treats news, Jeremy brought us microwave popcorn. Which is surprisingly unavailable or expensive here. And my mom mailed us, straight to my heart, Rice A Roni and Girl Scout Cookies. A delicious combo.
