For about the first year I lived in Seattle, I took sugar packets from every memorable restaurant or bar and marked the date and any important notes. I just recently found all of these in a purse I stuffed in the dark region of my closet. I’ve been in a nostalgic mood for the past hour, remembering particular moments. I have one from the Guam Airport, where for the first time I ordered a drink in front of my older brother. I think the “vengeful kid sister” in me wanted to shock him because it was only 10 in the morning. Most of them are from my early courtship with Mike, like the time we had dinner before the Rolling Stones concert or when we were in Iowa one summer for the Writer’s Workshop. It’s very sweet. Get it?
