An Ode to Melissa

Let's say your friend asks you when you want to meet to carpool to orchestra in the morning and you reply, "Aren't you going to pick me up at my house and bring me a chocolate chip bagel and a chai tea latte for breakfast?"

Most people would laugh at your joke and then arrange a mutually convenient place to meet for the usual morning carpool to school orchestra rehearsal.

Not my friend Melissa.

She showed up at my house in the morning with a still-warm toasted chocolate chip bagel with hazelnut cream cheese and a chai tea latte with soy milk, just the way I like it. And drove me to school while I munched on my bagel and sipped my chai.

I know, you're so jeal.

Everyone should have a Melissa.
