Apple Smoothie

I adapted the recipe for a green smoothie from Thrive to make my apple smoothie. You need to drink this straight away otherwise it will separate.

Last month I met a very nice young gentleman. He had purchased a suitcase from a place that does not specialise in luggage. And he was in the luggage store looking for a cover when I met him. I was there looking for a handbag and overheard the conversation he was having with the sales lady. She was offering her advice, telling him that he may as well buy a better quality case, rather than put a cover on the one he had bought. The cost would be the same and he would be getting more for his spend. As he was not sure, I offered my two cents worth to his decision making. I let him know which cases we have, how long they have lasted, and how much we travel.

As I was done, I left the shop to carry on with my day and bumped into him half an hour later. He was returning the suitcase he had bought. He asked me some more in-depth questions about our luggage and I gave him advice based on our personal experiences. I suggested he bought a Cellini soft shell case, with a built in lock, and 4 wheels. Dave is not a fan of the 4-wheeled case, but I love mine. He asked me several more questions, and we then veered onto where do you live etc. After a while he asked my name, introduced himself and then told me he needed to get going. He was taking his mother for a massage to say thank you for all she had done for him. Do you have a particular brand and style of luggage you prefer?
