When I first worked at that real estate agency, the first one that I met was Arlene. Arlene was a senior marketing associate and her partner was the one I was about to replace. At first, I thought she was a bit cold to me. It was only later that I realized that she’s simply a quiet person who didn’t like to talk a lot. All of our colleagues told me that she was actually a nice woman. It’s just that she preferred to keep to herself. But I had been patient with her so she started greeting me back when I greeted her with “good mornings” and that was a feat for me.
I didn’t feel nice to work in a place where your colleagues didn’t talk to you so I was a bit happy. But the very first time I saw her really and truly smile was when one of our co-workers, Len, brought something for her during lunch. It was a slice of lemon poppy seed cake. I saw her eyes twinkle as if they were lights on a Christmas tree.
I even witnessed the way she closed her eyes to inhale the scent of the aromatic bread. Ever since, whenever I pass by the coffee shop, I bought her a slice. She became more comfortable with me after. However, she resigned a few months later so our friendship was short lived. This lemon poppyseed shortbread recipe reminds me of Arlene and her obsession with poppy seed bread or cake. I hope you will love this recipe!
