1) It wasn't until I was seated in the 9:00 AM software demo that I learned it would be two hours long . . .
2) After work I met the daughter of one of my volunteers in Kenmore Square to do an informational interview on the World of Alumni Relations.
3) Before that, I'd had a meeting at Strobe Alley to discuss a reunion program. After the agenda, the conversation turned to cocktails, and my colleague told me about the Hawthorn in Kenmore Square, tucked alongside the lobby of the Hotel Commonwealth. It's run by an alumnus! After the info interview, I ducked in there - very posh with lots of deep leather chairs - pulled up a corner of the bar, and ordered a La Louisianne cocktail. I settled in with Clemence Dane's enormous novel of 1946 England The Flower Girls.
BONUS: In the absence of a burger on their bar menu, I ordered their small Cobb salad. As you see, they essentially serve a head of lettuce sliced in half, so knife is needed as often as fork. Still tasty nonetheless.
