Just a little mention:
Ryan Poli of Tavernita came in near closing two nights ago. For some reason I get the heebie-jeebies when he’s around. He looks creepy. Who knows, maybe some people think he’s attractive. I’m… not one of them.

He went up to the Chef’s Table to greet Elliot and Armanzo. While they were talking, I went up to the sink to rinse my bain, and he greeted me. “Hey, Beautiful,” he said. I bowed and then I turned and walked back to my station.

At the time I didn’t really think much of it, except for miscellaneous thoughts like, “Big Time Chef, I shouldn’t dawdle in his presence… let the boys talk with eachother.” But then Armanzo and Elliot started cracking up later. It hit me that what I did was kinda rude. Kinda gauche. I asked as much. They said, “Yes. But in a good way. That was awesome.”

I guess I’m not the only one who isn’t sharing the Poli love.
