What part of Connecticut you from?
The cold part.
Me, too. Came down to warm up.
When'd you get here?
Twelve years ago.
I had this conversation with the exterminator this morning. He has a big ol' Southern accent now, but the words between us got me thinking there's something of Connecticut that just stays with you. And that's OK.
Though there's not much cold here, there aren't any flowers, either. So I opted for this apple, born, as it was, of a pretty, fragrant little blossom not so many moons ago.
