Paris insight – ‘He’s Late’
The hair, makeup, outfit and accessories are perfect and you’ve
scored an outdoor table at the chosen SoPi
café…but he’s nowhere to be found.
You play it cool, then fidget a bit, check the menu,
waive off the waiter, light a cigarette, check your
lipstick, and finally fish out your phone to check for
apologetic texts while keeping your eyes on the
sidewalk where he’s due.
Your anxiety is rising, but your options are open:
will he find a smile, a scowl or an occupied seat on
arrival? He’d better hurry…this is #Paris!
