We've just arrived at my best friend and her boyfriend's apartment for the New Year's Eve party. A few people are already there, and my friend is in the kitchen area, preparing the food (mostly vegan!), as her boyfriend makes introductions and gives us the "tour". I join my friend to girl-gab. She asks where my guy is, and hers says he's still in the bedroom. "What, is he napping after his seven-hour drive?" I joke, and go to "find" him. He's there, all right, on the bed, gently stroking the cat's fur and talking to her. I swoon mightily.
