  • he upside to getting poked and prodded with needles all day (my left arm was covered in cotton ball, medical tape and bandaids) was that the SO was willing to take me anywhere for lunch to boost my sorry spirits.

  • Most days of the week, I am chained to my desk and drowning in work. Even when I'm not, our office doesn't have a lunch room, so lunch is usually a sad affair at my own desk. So it's a rare treat when I get to lunch with a girlfriend somewhere in town and thanks to an invitation to try Four Points by Sheraton Brisbane's Wrapped Cafe, I caught up with an ex-colleague who I adore and miss terribly for lunch.
