Dessert of the Day #2342

The leading developer on our little team is switching to another team on the other side of the floor, so we had a fancy lunch today to give her a proper sendoff. Our waiter was eager to talk, full of menu suggestions and anecdotes; halfway through the meal he told us how he once punched a customer who spit on him.

Soon enough we were full, but the eight of us ordered these two desserts to split – just enough for us each to have a tiny slice of cake, a spoonful of ice cream and a raspberry or two. They were delicious, of course, and finishing the meal with these small, sweet helpings was like adding a little twisting flair at the end of a slow dance.

Today is all code – tomorrow evening I will make a point to stay away from the terminal.
