Jeez life is complicated, yesterday it was the stupidest thing and today it’s the best. Talk about a cop out on the ideas front, oh well.
The absolutely best thing I have heard or rather read came in an email from a good friend of mine who works long hours in a restaurant, his wife has a similar role curiously not too far away from where my friend spends all his time. It was his birthday on Sunday and that is the one day in the week when the restaurant is closed. Usually he doesn’t get home till the small hours of the morning so I don’t imagine he was “up with the lark” on his birthday. When I asked him what they had done to celebrate he said that they had gone to a fish restaurant that wasn’t too bad. Clearly not great but then I guess if you work with food there is a very high probability that you will be hyper critical of any other establishment. It’s inevitable.
Now we come to the point of this post he went on to say that the real luxury of the day was to be able to spend time with his wife. I thought that was a really nice thing to say, old softie that I am.
