Pizza would not have been my dinner of choice as a proper farewell meal for our British friends, but given the unchilled existence that we are currently leading, it was all I could muster up on such a steaming hot day.
The sad truth is that they won't be eating American pizza anytime soon so it turns out it wasn't such a bad choice after all. I had mused over rice and beans because they are a staple of Izzy's friend I.'s diet but the heat-induced lethargy prevented me from actually making them.
In the end, it really didn't matter at all what we ate, as long as we were eating together, for who knows when it will happen again. After spending many years in Jersey City, they board the Queen Mary for England tomorrow. A new chapter of their lives begins while the last chapter here ends. Life for Izzy and me will not be the same without them.
Wishing them "Bon Voyage" and hoping to visit London in the not too distant future.
