No Waiting For Me, Thank You Very Much


My mom always says it’s impolite to gloat, but I felt pretty good today when I sailed past the long line and through the packed lobby of Tower Cafe to pick up my huevos rancheros and chile rellenos breakfasts. I called ahead and ordered them to go, so I had to contend with lukewarm food when I got home (and a rickety dining room chair instead of a seat in Tower’s fecund outdoor patio) but I know my tummy was full and happy before that last customer in line had a menu in her hand.
