Coffee with Candi and a touch of sauce

Candi is always a pleasure to spend time with, we are very much like two peas in a pod, or as I like to put it, we were twins in another life. However you like to word it, we always manage to have a giggle together and possibly seem completely bonkers to everyone else unfortunate enough to be within earshot of our conversations (and no, alcohol is not always the cause of this - we're naturally that way inclined). Nevertheless, I always leave with a distinct ache in my jaw brought on from laughing and smiling too much. Is there such a thing as smiling and laughing too much? No not really, but when it hurts to not smile, that's when you know you've had a really good time.

Today was one of these days. Candi lives not too far from me, so I picked her up and together we set off to have a coffee, a bite to eat and a good old natter (leading to a lot of chuckling and guffawing). I'm not too sure what the staff in the shop thought of our illicit discussions; Magic Mike, love, life, sex, BBQ's, cocktail nights and everything above, below and almost certainly in between, in a lot of detail, but the two ladies, deep in their own conversations, didn't seem at all disturbed when my giggling led to a furious attack of laughter further amplified by Candi's loud exclamation for me to swallow (referring, I should add, to my mouthful of hot chocolate). Luckily, I did manage to get myself under enough control to swallow without any severe embarrassment or unpleasant drooling of anything (yes, unfortunately, that has happened once before).

3 hours later and we're still chatting, giggling and guffawing, mixed in with a bit of gossip and sharing of secrets. Altogether it was a lovely way to spend a Thursday afternoon with a fab friend, and I'm already looking forward to the next time.
