Sam made it through the holidays, sneaking away to savor the aromas at the coffee shop.

“This next year was going to be the year he finally would know what it was like to taste,” he mused over his coffee.

“Is this seat taken?” a smartly dressed woman asked.


“Pretty crowded, guess we all need an escape from the relatives.”

“Yeah,” Sam laughed knowingly.

“I’m Dr. Juliet Russell.”

“Sam Brown. What’s your specialty?”

“Sensory Neurology Research, so smell, taste..”

“Did you say taste…” Sam interrupted.

“Why yes. Are you in that line of work?”

“No not yet.” Sam smiled.
