When I returned to my cubby station (after storing the Mayor’s wife’s box in the recycling bin) I heard the “ding, ding” of the “ring for service” bell from out front. I jumped into action and was surprised to see the Mayor’s wife still there. She was tapping her hand against the counter. I asked, “Did you forget something?” She said, “Yes, breakfast. Do you have anything ready that’s gluten free?” I didn’t say anything because the scene was so awkward: the Mayor’s wife kept looking at her phone– she wouldn’t look at me. Then she barked, “Well, tell me… what do you have? I’m in a hurry. The Mayor has a Teachers Union breakfast meeting today… I have to be there but I need to eat first.” I told her I could make her something but it would take about 20 minutes. She agreed but huffed, “Why does everything and everyone move so slowly when I’m in a hurry?” I had no answer to that question; so I went to the kitchen and made Elana Amsterdam’s Paleo Breakfast Bread.
When I returned, the Mayor’s wife was gone! I assumed she was in a hurry and had changed her mind about eating before the meeting.
