Wait - ing

Some WAIT to earn money and some, because they cannot find a better way to earn. There are others who WAIT bcoz they earn well while WAIT- ing and they do not mind this profession. They like to WAIT upon people, they like to serve... They like to take orders, and they love to remember the largest o' orders by heart. The other day, I chanced upon a lady WAITER... She was gud at her job. She WAIT- ED with perfection... She remembered our order by heart and she served her guests (read us) well...
Also, Skeets remembers having been to a cafe at Khan market in the month of March...We were two... PeaNUT and Skeeter... We entered hungry... All tables were taken up... We turned to move out. The lady (who was the owner of the place) stopped us, handed us the menu and very politely asked a guest to leave the table as she (the guest) was done with her food....We sat. She explained to us what exactly would we get if we ordered what we were contemplating t0 order... We ordered a sandwich, drinks. The food was good..perhaps because we were very hungry.... and the best part was that when we were leaving, she (the owner) was WAIT-ING upon other guests...STILL she had a SHARP eye on the door... She managed to shout bubbye--hope you njoyed the food.... THIS, is exactly what the subtle art of WAIT-ING is all about.
I would love to WAIT upon people sumday... at one of Reeta's Restros.

Dream on...

(The name of the cafe is not mentioned here because of the nature of the post)
