Get in the Soup Mood!

Sunday, March 02, 2014

Lightning paves its way through a cloudy sky and thunder suddenly interrupts bouts of silence. The wind is raging fast, moving trash on the streets. The sky tears itself open and shy drops of rain begin to drip. Some look worried as they rush to find shelter. Others are pissed off as the stormy cold night has destroyed all their plans. For me, it was different: I wore my pajamas once again and sat on a comfy sofa in the living room by the window sipping a bowl of soup as its scent wafted through my nose. Join me for an unforgettable warm sensation as we get in the mood for … soup!
