I’ve moved offices and the new place is on the Minneapolis skyway system which is a maze of hamster tunnels spanning 70 blocks of downtown. I never have to go outside again.
It’s all food. Food. Everywhere. Soup, salads, delis with unlimited pickles and potato salad, different kinds of pizzas, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, Indian, Thai, Cajun, bakeries, frozen yogurts, coffee and tea shops, wine shops, cheese shops.

During the summer the avenue outside is lined with FOOD TRUCKS with everything from noodle bowls to lobster rolls and mini donuts. One street up is a FARMERS MARKET with fruit, veggies, and $5 bouquets.

It’s office moving day, there are four inches of snow on the ground and the movers are running two hours late. I brought donuts for them and am seriously considering eating a third one. There’s nothing to do but wait. Also, I am on day five of a killer cold and totally alone in this whole move thing. Huh.
