Claire was my coworker at the PR firm I worked at the summer I lived in London. I loved her. She was the perfect British friend. She showed me the way around Brown Lloyd James (the firm), but also made sure we knew what good “authentic” places to go out at night (and often joined us). She loved that we were Americans, and always tried out her “American” accent on us. Her favorite line was, “Oh my gawsh!”
I have no idea where Claire is these days…We kept in touch over a few e-mails, but I wouldn’t know how to find her if I wanted to. I hope the world is treating her well. I hope she got the chance to travel to the U.S. and try out that accent of hers.
