post-euro cocoonishness

February 21, 2006 – 11:08 pm

a brooding france trip being what it is, the return assimilation always comes with its glaring signs of denial: $75 in cheese purchases at the local market grocery store, a desperation lever shot of 17-day puro scuro leftovers, a stack of french chocolate and a color prinout of the day’s front page of le monde.

there is the slightly funk-mitigating realization that, with my stale pre-trip remainders, i managed to lever a desperation shot this morning that held vastly more character than anything i’d swilled in paris. for all the glut of culinary and coffee-related pleasures in paris, there seems to be a glaring market opening!
