Auld Lang Syne

We went up town and ran into a ex-neighbour we haven't seen for five years. She's one of those people who wants to tell you every single thing that happened in the course of her day, minute by minute, with special attention paid to the zinging remarks with which she flattened recalcitrant colleagues who in her case- since she's a nurse- were usually know-nothing doctors. I used to take her daughter to school and feed the goldfish when she was away and Ailz and I would comfort ourselves in our affliction by reminding ourselves that underneath it all she had a heart of gold.
