Champagne and Caviar

There are moments when I truly cannot believe how good I have it—for a first job anyway. This morning I went into the office kitchen to wash my pear for my 11 am snack, and the video department was cleaning up after a Champagne tasting video they just shot and asked if I’d like some Champagne and Caviar.

But of course, daaaahling! I’m a sophisticate. I do live on the Upper East Side. And I’ve never tried Caviar.

Well, it’s gross. Salty fish eggs aren’t for me, even with egg whites on top and even Champagne Taittinger Nocturne to wash it down.

But I am now sitting in my cubicle enjoying Melba Toasts sans Caviar, blackberries, cherries and a paper cup of a bottle of Champagne I could never afford, toasting the good life.
