Why I Love Geoff

Tonight we had dinner at our friend Audrey's house. Audrey made pozole, cornbread and cream cheese filled jalapeno poppers.

The pork in the pozole was "harvested" by her boyfriend Dwayne and Audrey served some of her homegrown tomatoes and oregano as some pre-dinner nibbles.

Everything was great.

Audrey cans her own vegetables and apple butter and Dwayne hunts and fishes. I wondered tonight why in the world we hadn't eaten dinner with them before.

I brought alfajores for dessert and they turned out pretty good ... but were time consuming what with the making of the dulce de leche and all that rolling and cutting out cookies etc etc etc.

Geoff and I had never been to Audrey's house before, but before we left our condo, Geoff was on the Internet looking up how to get there.

So you can imagine my surprise when we turned down the street and Geoff said "It's one of these, I just can't remember which one".

We passed a few streets with names .. Elizabeth, Megan, etc. and I said "Huh, Megan Street. Cool." and after we passed a few more I said, "Just let me call her" and Geoff was irritable and said "No, I know it's one of these, I just can't remember which one."

And -- I promise -- I wasn't even going to make it seem like he was asking for directions when I called! I was even going to tell her *I* forgot to bring the paper with the address written on it.

Eventually, he pulled to the side of the road and I tried to call her, but she wasn't answering so he called Dwayne and Dwayne told him, so we turned around and headed to the right street.

It was Megan Street.

You know, the one with the same name (albeit spelled differently) as his wife.
