I trained a BADASS tonight...

May 13th, 2007 (03:09 am)

Her name is Clarke.

She's in her early 20's, but an old soul.
(Know how there can be TWO kinds of people
who smile all the time? One who is simply oblivious....
And one who is in touch with the deeeeeeeeper KNOW?
She's the later.)

We rocked it.
Was a long night, a long weird night....
But we were cut just in time to still have a moment to sit down with a bevy
after our shift--and shoot the shit with our fellow staffers.

I love working at a place, that people love enough
to stick around for.
Me and Clarke, one of our Kitchen managers, an MOD/Server,
an EX-Cook (he doesn't even work there anymore and still hangs out)...
And the EX-Cook's best Friend visiting from out of State.

Just a bunch of us sitting out on the deck, clinking glasses
and telling stories.

I work FOR good people, WITH good people, and I serve...
Some mighty fine Folks.

I gotta be back in the morning--I picked up one of our gal's brunch shifts
so she could get out of town with her Beau for bit.
Not much on turn-around-time.....
But it's worth it.

We're all Family.

Being tired for a Sister, well....that's not so bad.
She'll do the same for me soon, I know.



I don't even know what changed inside me yesterday morning.
What shifted, what fell into place?
But I simply am not SAD anymore.

My heart feels whole again.

...The paradigm shift.

I'm so glad to hear it.

Re: from my nook in the library

You are one of the few people I know
who can use the word paradigm...
and not cause me to snicker.
