We were supposed to have breakfast with Jimmy this morning but we ran late because I was still really, really under the weather and trying to drag myself out of bed. You may remember him; he works for a major opera company in the United States and was a Fulbright scholar with whom we attended college. We ended up meeting him at the Princeton University Chapel, which had been rented by Westminster, the music school of Rider University, for a commencement ceremony. The three of us were guests of one of the speakers so we were able to arrive very near to the start time and still get whisked to the front, which was nice.
After the ceremony, Aaron and I made our way over to Olive’s, a little gourmet deli and grocery store near Witherspoon street. I got a chicken and rice burrito with sour creme and a cherry soda; Aaron ordered some sort of olive oil penne pasta. We walked to the parking garage and ate in the rental car before heading over to the nearby music school campus for Rider University, where we were supposed to have a rehearsal for an event tonight at which we are speaking.
