Do you like pancakes?

July 25, 2009

In preparation for the Blogathon, we sent out a request to everyone we know to send us stories about making friends and building networks.  Here’s a story from Shirlane:

I met my good friend Marion in the elevator. We both lived in the same apartment building and always saw each other in the elevator but only said “hi”. One day I decided I wanted to know her outside of the elevator. I didn’t know what to say but thought I would ask her if she liked pancakes. Who doesn’t like pancakes? She said yes so I invited her to my apartment the next Saturday to have a pancake brunch. When she arrived I found out she likes coffee as much as I do so we had a cup of coffee, with chocolate, first; and then made sweet potato pancakes which Marion had never heard about before. We put applesauce and brown sugar on top. Yummy!!

Marion and I share a love of cats, coffee with chocolate, pancakes made from various ingredients and unusual toppings, and lots of other things.  Since we met eight years ago we have invited other people in the building who we thought might enjoy creative pancakes to our brunches. It’s so much fun having a group of  friends in the building where we live. We get together for lunch, coffee, picnics and parties. In the winter we enjoy board games, pizza and movie nights, or just visiting with each other.  It feels like a family but everyone has their own suite. Now that’s sweet…like applesauce and brown sugar on pancakes.Pancakes

Thanks for that story Shirlane! 

If you have any great stories to share, you can send them to us at

    Ugh, want pancakes.

    I wish you luck with both the Blogathon AND your son’s career ambitions. I took two day trips out to Cardiff in May, but the Torchwood office was locked up and there were no aliens in sight. Maybe your son will have better luck than I did 😉
