Her name is R_SE.
She’s tall — wonderfully so.
She has quirky interests. She once brought in fragrant oils that affect one’s energy level. She also takes caffeine pills.
Her voice is a swath of cool cloth, a minty mouthwash. The way she addresses customers is honest, not obsequious.
She calls me a rock, a smiling rock: she has a way with words. She says she learns a lot from me. She’s ready with compliments for everyone — I want her humility. Her favorite saints are Saints Thérèse of Lisieux and Mary of the Desert. Good choices.
She’s an eclectic collection of ideas, dreams, and wonderings. She brings herself down a lot.
She came from Dunkin and would return if they offered her a position. She likes the fast pace, though the quality of food there is no better than the one here in our cafe.
She asks coworkers tidy random questions along our shifts.
