Was having dinner with my sister at Prego's this evening. I think we were talking about love and relationships, and suddenly, my eyes started tearing. Before I knew it, my head was buried in the (tomato sauce stained) napkin and I couldn't stop crying.
My sister quickly called for the bill (thankfully we were done with our meal) and the girl who came over noticed that I was sobbing. And I guess I must have looked quite pathetic because she was asking me not to cry and hurriedly came over with a complimentary piece of tiramisu.
Although it took me a while to calm down again, I was touched at such a simple and thoughtful gesture. As we were leaving the restaurant, I looked out for her, and she came over with a big smile and told me, "Don't cry ma'am. Everything will be OK."
Thank you, Ariane.
