this place

Where I want to be, is inside every room with him - holding his hand, kissing his head, just being together. But lest we both be MRI'd unnecessarily, I am relegated to the Mayo waiting room for hours. Which means I have lots of time to wander.

This place has a wine bar.
A wine bar.
Not that I'd use it. I'm much more inclined to drown my anxiety in an Ativan laced butterscotch latte - which is also an option with the Caribou coffee right next to the pharmacy.
There's a joke shop, a couture baby boutique, a florist, an old school men's shop where you can buy a dress shirt for just $96. There is a chocolate shop, a bagel joint, some kind of crazy old lady shop where you can buy a $300 rhinestone purse shaped like a lighthouse (or a fish or a piano - pick your poison). I've counted at least four grand pianos, a barber shop, and an underwear store. There's "scrub your butt soap company" and a place where you can buy your own jazzy scooter.

But I never wander for long. I know they'll bring him back to me soon, and he is the only thing in the world I want.

I know most of these places you mention. Have you found the gelato shop? The popcorn shop in the bowels of the Kahler? Hang in there, my friend.

No popcorn or gelato shop yet, but I'm hoping the gelato is better than the banana pie.

First stop on your next forced time out from Rico's side-the bowels of the Kahler for popcorn or frozen yogurt. Can't quit thinking about you.
