Pancake you for watching!
I raced down the aisle to table twelve, seeing the haunted look in my customer's eyes. I wanted to be perfect for every one of you. I wanted you all to like me. I'm sorry I'm not better, not faster. Please don't hate me, I'm only one person, not even a particularly tall person.
"I'm sorry," I said to table eight, "but I simply can't do everything!" I felt ripple of crass laughter in the air. I turned. Allen Feinman had walked in with his parents.
No...Anything but this.
Our eyes met. I could hear the taunts at school, the never-ending retelling of this, my ultimate nightmare.
"Can I help, Jill?" He rolled up his shirtsleeves. Allen Feinman was offering to help.
