M. Tom’s been at work for over three hours already, but so far I’ve managed to avoid surfing the Web for more scare stories about my condition. Instead I have: • eaten three pieces of baklava. That’s about it, actually. Other than that I’ve stared out the window at yet another gray, cool, slushy East Coast morning and watched an elderly gentleman in the apartment complex opposite bang on his TV to try and get it to work. Then I went through my address book to see if there’s anyone I’d like to talk to (there 32 ■ Sarah Bilston isn’t) and napped for twenty minutes.
Anyway, like me she got into Oxford at the last minute, like me she read PPE—politics, philosophy, economics—but unlike me she checked out in her second year and took the starring role in Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner instead. She took to wearing black jeans, black turtlenecks, and secondhand suede jackets from 16 ■ Sarah Bilston Camden Market. She dyed her hair blond and scrunched it up into these devastating little glossy rolls, secured at the nape of her neck with a lacquered chopstick. And she dated a long line of devilishly handsome actors (who also wore black jeans and black turtlenecks, and who affected just-rolled-out-of-bed hairdos).
Brianna has been here again, which was a good thing, because the mozzarella sandwich was finished by eleven. I was starting to freak, actually, about how I was going to make two kiwi fruit and a packet of dry roasted peanuts last for nine hours. Then Bri shows up with four slices of thin-crust pizza from La Margherita round the corner. After I’d consumed three of them she took the hint and rustled up a ham and cheese omelette in the kitchen. And she brought me some chocolate chip cookies, for which I thanked her abjectly.
