Geppetto’s Log Startdate 121821.1
Good and Evil
Our crew survived a week without Chef Alonzo! (Thanks mostly to Esther for taking on the focaccia bread. It turned out great!) We celebrated yesterday with thirty tacos from Azuls Taco House! All were fed and I got to see our dear friend, Tino. We had a great visit about family, friends and Salem. I left with a hug, awesome tacos and a warm heart.
The rest of the evening was packed with deliveries, dine in and takeout. So many good people… but for two.
I’m sure they knew what they were doing long before they arrived. They ate and drank well… to the tune of $75… they sat and visited for a very long time. They then made their way to the bar. Then they left… without paying. If I judged by appearance… they could afford to pay… but get off on stealing. Bleh.
The way I see it… we are on this planet for a for a relatively short amount of time. How we live while we are here matters in the encore. We can use our gifts for good or evil and the choice is ours.
Roger didn’t want me to write about this because, he said, it sounds negative. I respectfully disagree. I believe we have to be aware of what can happen. We have to walk with eyes open. We need to be conscious of how our own actions impact others.
The young couple stole from us and made the server feel like crap. I assured her their bad juju belongs only to them.
Here’s the even better part…
I learned of their crime while visiting with another couple of guests. They reacted by handing over Geppetto’s gift cards to help cover the loss.
There is a lot of good going on in Salem. Hang on to the good. God will handle the riff raff when the time comes. Good prevails!
