Back when Marianne lived in the States, we would often get together at a place Tippy's Taco. Tippy's Taco is a chain of very cheap, delicious Mexican food in Northern Virginia. I don't know what started us on Tippy's in the first place. But we continued to go whenever she was home from school. And we went one final time before she moved to Spain in September. These photos are from our final Tippy's visit.
They did have some amazingly delectable guacamole there.
I think about going to Tippy's sometimes. And then I realize that I can't go with Marianne. Sure, it would be awesome and tasty and cheese-filled, but it just wouldn't be the same. It wouldn't be filled with chomping on chips while discussing school and boys and Pearl Jam and Crispin Glover and our eventual adventures in Ireland.
So, suffice to say, I miss my Tippy's trips with Marianne. But, while I do miss her something most fierce, I should not let this deprive me of wonderful Tippy's Tacos. One day, one day I will return again...for some epic enchiladas.
