Overheard at Booth 1: Stay

Meeting at the Zen and Tao Acoustic Cafe, after not seeing each other for three years, after they were caught up on their jobs and new loves, the conversation eventually turned to the old apartment they'd shared, where they'd shared utilities, rent, and more than a few laughs.

He said, "You know, when I look back on that, I realize that I never exactly knew why you left."

She was not surprised by this.  She simply replied, "I only left, because I knew you would never ask me to stay."
