kawa mrożona

Friday, January 28, 2011

Remember when I randomly met this girl?

Well, we've kept in touch (her name is Magda) through Facebook (oh, Mark Zuckerberg, how we love to hate you but couldn't live without you) and I hung out with her again during my last trip to Poland. She picked me up in her super cute Fiat Panda (bright blue!) and we got "coffee". Since I don't drink coffee, I opted for a kawa mrożona (a smidge of coffee hidden by the taste of ice cream, thank you very much) and she taught me Polish words and then laughed at my pronunciations (it's okay, I'm used to it).

After 2 hours of sitting with her, chatting, laughing and just loving that I have a girl friend in Poland,  I figured Magda would want to go home. When I asked her what she wanted to do, however, she asked, "Do you want me to go home now or can I stay with you and shop?". I thought it was so sweet! I told her of course we could shop. I found some super warm tights/leg-warmers (can never have enough of those) on sale as well as a brown leather bag at Zara. We also spent a good portion of the afternoon looking for hair ties (hair rubberbands? I don't know the proper name) with no metal clasp since my abnormally thick hair breaks those after 1 day of usage. 
so we went home.

Magda is the cutest.  The end.

And I'm Henry! That's all I have to say about that.

I understand the importance of good hair ties, Jennifer. They are also very fun to buy, and I get excited when I find a never-been-used one in my bathroom drawer. It's seriously like finding a $20 in your coat pocket.
