My annual Christmas luncheon was held at the St. Louis Club, second year in a row, this past Friday. This is the one event that Bob looks forward to each year. He dresses up in his suit, goes into work that day and makes everyone believe that he’s going on a job interview. Even though he has a great time mingling with the people in my firm, he’s really there for the food.
And the food did not disappoint him. Bob likes to remember certain dishes that he has had over the years. For the past three years, all he could talk about was the Bread Pudding (which we rediscovered over at Cyrano’s) and this past year he raved about the soup. When I told him that the event was at the Club again, he had to make sure that we were having the soup.
I tell you, I work hard at my job and he gets all the benefits! I mean, all this great food, trip to New York, nights out on the town. And what do I get from his company? Pain, misery and loneliness. Seems a little unfair!
