new class, projects - from 8am - 5:30 + all performance based, and dancing under the flying bullets of young, smart, and "I'm DONNNNNEEE" minds.
sSo............. if there is something that is stuck to me that I am un aware of - what ever....... I meant to do that. yes.... um...... yes, i like it there.
Sooooooo - the Citizen CAFE = THE BEST!!!
The best Portabella mushroom sandwich and chips in the world.
and the price is too good to be true
But what I really want to send my LOVE out to is - the service!
so When Ben and I decided to go out - turns out our waitress use to be a camp councilor - and I use to have to be a waitress - wait wait - no, not as cool as that. I learned that working the down town lunch hour for the Legal and Government people was worse than being a "lunch lady". There were no tips. pennies shuffled out of fists like a tight accidental shit when the opposite of "broken heart-ed" occurs.
So when we sat down, and the waitress goes = "Oh, is that part of your uniform?"
me - thinking - handprint on my butt? smudge? someone's name? a glob of paint, clay?..... boogers, pink eye..????
"I'm certain what ever it is, yes"
"I was teaching Egypt camp - let me tell you about Scarabs - i.e. - the dung beetle"
at that point, the little girl behind me turns around, and jumps out of her chair into her father's arms
"what to - right away - what ever is cheap please - I can''t do anything - so cheap - oho ooh -Malbec I love that!"
Ben gets out his, I'm seeking mine.... girl is pointing............
I hand her my I-D- thanking her.
at this point she realizes the June Bug on my back is not art - but a stowaway.
MyID = Insect get the fuck off her.
and now is a friend of he Citizen Cafe
Now - Why are they the BEST??
#1) THE FOOD
#2) THE QUALITY AND PRICE
#3) - They did not blame me or make me feel bad about the critter crawled on me
#4) even better - the waitress TOTALLY understood that kind of tired where you figure "if it's on my body, a child put it there, and they just want to be cared about - care of you - and will die for anything to know you care back. Hence why - never EVER hurt a child.
#5 ) -extra pour for the day I had and the mutal understanding
#6) - she's willing to give up Friday night tips because her kids are in sports / after school whatever now.
that takes soul
so Citizen CAfe - I LOVE YOU
