BACK FROM BREAK ... how have you been?

Here's a lovely way to ease back from Spring Break to daily routine:  A weekday breakfast on a charming city sidewalk.  Steaming mug of Earl Grey tea, fresh-squeezed orange juice, eggs sunny side up, crisp bacon.  Chartreuse leaves rustle overhead as your girlfriend fills you in on what's happened while you were away.

So, friends, tell me:  how have you been?
