Yesterday afternoon I was mindlessly flipping through the bra rack at Ross in Collierville.

An ederly woman with a spray of grey-white hair tapped me on the shoulder as I examined a  polka-dot brazier.

“Honey, you need more padding than that,” she said with a wink. She proceeded to cup her breasts and say, “But don’t worry, you can have some of mine.”

She laughed and walked away. Only in Memphis.

Chef Kelly English stunned me and the magazine ladies with his creative food creations. The restaurant is in a renovated house in a residential neighborhood. It’s quaint and super location-specific. Restaurant Iris is one of the many locally owned Memphis restaurants I’ve eaten at the past couple of days. Work retreats are great, the food is greater.

This past semester my dear friends, Southern Belle (SB), Blonde Girl (BG) and I were at my apartment to prepare a meal. Per usual, my fridge was nearly empty.

I assumed that we’d have to order pizza or make some instant mac-and-cheese. I was embarrassed. I was hosting at my apartment and should have had a well-stocked pantry and a bottle of pink champagne on hand for the occasion.
