Bouvet Brut with strawberry

This is a personal shout-out to a very dear friend. Aitch is one of my bestest of friends from a different time and place – one that I miss very sorely.

Last week, just as I was about to leave the *gainful employ,* I got an email message from Aitch. As always, it was short and succinct. Most of the message contained random thoughts, life-summaries, and other (under)-statements made in modesty. Hidden among them was this: “by the way, I just received word that I will be clerking for Supreme Court Justice X next year.”

Just like that… without much fanfare, pomp or circumstance!

Incredulous, I wrote back gushing with congratulations.

Aitch, I want you know, that night I attended a wine dinner where I toasted your success over a glass of Bouvet Brut sparkling with a strawberry sliver.

When you get settled in D.C., I’ll have to return to that former “hometown” of mine and we’ll have to celebrate! Cheers to you, Aitch!
