the night shift

the night shift was so much better. i can't even begin to tell you how much better it was. i got to translate for 15 wonderful people who came from all over the US. i felt like i was on a live cooking show because the chef didn't speak a lick of english and i had to explain what and why the chef was doing certain things to the dishes. i guess all those hours of watching the food network sure paid off. i made sure that these tourists had an informative and fun time in the kitchen last night.

after the tourists had eaten everything they could from dinner and dessert, one man came up to me and handed me money saying, "now i want you to know that i don't do this to everyone. i only do this to the people who are courteous, polite, and such a pleasure to be around. you, my dear, did a spectacular job and i wish you all the best in the future". that was the nicest thing i had hear all day long. not to mention how many times i was told, "bless your heart, just bless you". i felt on top of the world while i was walking home down the cobblestone streets in the dark of night.

YAY! I'm so glad that they were so nice to you and that the night shift was so much better. Now go spend that cash on some amazing straciatella gelato for me. :-) I can just dream...
