The Perfect Meal

Divine is the only word that comes to mind, as I look at my lunch. Its sweet smell wafts through the air, letting me know eleven is close enough to both breakfast and lunch to make this meal acceptable in the realm of my peers.

I bite into the Peach, Brie, and Honey Croissant and become barraged with descriptors. Undeniably sweet, I taste the sweet and tangy fresh peach first, then the light butter of the croissant dough itself, brushed with just a hint of honey. My second bite is all texture- the stick of honey on my fingers, the soft mush of the gooey baked peach and the airy flake of the croissant. I nearly forgot the brie. Brie, the universal binder, it tastes soft, slightly woody, adding depth and breadth to the croissant with its savory, seductive powers.

Each flavor, every texture, combines to create a euphoric dance in my mouth.

And the coffee? Expertly prepared- sweet and nutty, even when taken black (which is how I prefer it). One day I will gain the nerve to ask the shop owner how to obtain these beans for my own daily consumption.

Where did I get such a masterpiece of a meal?
