Blues. The first job I was ever fired from!

I was a busboy and there was a rule that you ONLY took ice from the bottom door of the ice machine (proper rotation of ice - it was valid.)

One early morning I was taking ice from the top. The manager - I think a Mrs Brown - caught me and started berating me at the top of her lungs, calling me names, just being awful. I opened up the bottom door and ice went shooting across the kitchen. I said “That’s why I was taking it out of the top.”

I was a smart as at 16.

BTW… I bought Ernest Weil’s cookbook Fantasia Confections. He created the Coffee Crunch Cake. I originally got the recipe from a woman I volunteered with at Project Open Hand.

The recipe is on my recipe website. It takes a bit of time, but it’s spectacular!
