I had a friend in Paris the other day. I met her through AOL-remember America On Line? It used to be very popular but everyone but, I guess, me has gone over to Yahoo and gmail while I have remained. If it ain’t broke, why fix it? Anyway, right after I moved to Paris years ago I went to the now gone Paris Board on AOL and a bunch of the commenters were all coming to Paris so we all met for dinner one evening. Maurice came along because he couldn’t believe that a group of people who had exchanged emails and comments on the Internet were actually going to meet. It doesn’t sound like it would work but it did. I made several friends through AOL and those friendships continue to this day. So when my old AOL pal came to Paris, of course I went to see her. Another lady was with us, a sort of strange lady. I don’t think she will ever read my blog. In any case, as we were drinking wine she asked me if I wanted her to read my fortune in my wine glass. I thought that was only with tea leaves but I said sure. She looked a bit at the wine in my glass and then said that I thought I needed more excitement in my life. She couldn’t be more wrong. I guess that’s what happens when you look for fortunes in wine.
