Do you know those days, so crowded with calls and meetings that you almost forget lunch, and in the afternoon you have no idea what time it is? I had exactly that today and today is only Tuesday. I am on my way home, feeling stressed and a conversation with a customer, for whom I have not exactly shone with courtesy and understanding, still haunts my thoughts. I actually wanted to meet a friend for dinner, but I don’t feel like it after all and also feel like I’m not a nice companion today. I cancelled on her. Sometimes you just need to rest after a day like that.
I’ll cook something fine for myself at home and then I’ll see the evening out with some stupid show. On the way home I buy the necessary ingredients and immediately start preparing my asparagus risotto at home. I love the smell of freshly cooked food. I set the table and even take one of my favorite serviettes, which I usually only use when I get a visitor. While the risotto is still simmering, I quickly pour another Vermouth 700 into a white wine glass with ice and sit on the balcony with it. I light a cigarette and contemplate the day. “It wasn’t really that bad,” I think to myself, so I raise my glass and enjoy the cool drink.
THAT’S MY KRAUSS MOMENT.
