WHO: Jessica & Hati WHEN: Sometime Monday WHERE: Luella's, a bakery in Gramercy Park WHAT: Worst taste in men, ahoy! NOTES: Obviously the linked cake doesn't belong to me. But take it as an example anyway.
When not serving customers, Jessica has spent much of the morning working on the frosting flowers for a wedding cake that was to go out tomorrow night. They had her do in in view of the customers - it was good promotion for them to see it it progress, at least this far along - and every so often she paused to talk to someone who asked some question or other about it.
One of these times lifting her head to talk to an old man, Jessica spotted Hati coming in the door and smiled brightly at him, finishing off the conversation with the customer so she could pay her attention to the 'viking' instead.
"Hi," she told him, wiping her hands on a towel. "This is a nice surprise."
