America, Canada, Mexico, the U.K., France, Ireland, Bulgaria, Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, Australia, India, Japan. The roster of an international conference on regulating sperm whale populations? Quite possibly, and a valid guess, but in this case incorrect. Rather, it is the various nationalities represented in the restaurant and bar where I work. Definitely one of the cooler parts of my job---and, at times, one of the more frustrating. Those years of model U.N. in High School are finally having a practical application. Decided that my diet of staff cafeteria/frozen dinners was getting old, so a couple of guys and I went out for a good meal tonight---I have consumed a heck of a lot of cow in my life, and the steak tonight was one of, if not the best I've ever had. Best part is, it probably only shaved 2 years off my life expectancy.
