New Job Feet

Yesterday, after my first day of work I stopped at the fabric shop, spotted my old boss in yarn, and fully dressed in my prep cook clothes, jumped into a Spider-Man-like pose, showing off my new duds.

Scared the crap out of her. It was great.

Thanks to all you Bloggers for kind words, encouragement and laughs. And now, I'm headed to Day Two at the steakhouse. Today I'm getting crossed trained on salad bar.

Meanwhile, dig my new job feet. They're slip-resistant. Much fancier than my pink slippers and orange shower socks.
