The project I’m on at work is on critical path – we install next week. Are we anywhere close to being done with testing? Ah hell no! Anyway, it’s nuts, stressful and infuriating. Today has been particularly bad.
So, I finally am able to get away from my desk for a few minutes to grab lunch downstairs at our cafeteria as they are getting ready to close. I need something comforting, but they appeared to be out of what I wanted which was the spinach calzone. But, Scott the executive chef said he’d make me one from scratch if I was willing to wait. No prob.
While I was waiting I headed over to the cappuccino machine to refuel for this afternoon and evening. Then I just wandered around with a dead-eyed stare looking vaguely zombie-like. It wasn’t until my food was ready that I showed any signs of life.
“I put some pesto in there for you because I know you like the pesto”, Scott said as he handed me my dish. Ahhh, that’s so sweet that he remembered. But, the topper was that he topped my calzone with a little Italian flag made with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and pesto. He grinned, “sometimes you just need to play with your food, ya know?”
Yeah, I know.
