Eagles' Fans Everywhere
I was in Williamsburg today visiting my daughter Hannah for parents weekend at William & Mary. My parents-in-law also live in Williamsburg so we all went out to dinner at a nice restaurant overlooking the James River. Our waitress, Shauna, was particularly friendly, asking if it was a special occasion and where we were from. When we told her, she immediately wanted to know if we were Eagles' fans! That led to a long conversation in which we learned that she was from Philadelphia and was a huge fan. We also learned that she is recently married, had been a journalism major, and is now back in school to be a nurse.
Shauna took great care of us throughout the meal and provided particularly personal and friendly service. When it came time to pay the bill, I left her a larger than usual tip, and I wrote her a note thanking her for the excellent service. I also enclosed a Starbucks gift card for good measure, and of course, I wrote "GO EAGLES!" on her copy of the bill.
