During a conference last month, my colleges and I had returned to the same table in the Miami Lowes hotel cafe for three days straight. We always ordered coffee, of course. And the same guy was there each time.
On the last day, Delfilio (that was his name) brought us over a free sample of his own special Chai Tea he’s been working on and said, “you’ve been here so long, now I think of you as friends.”
The tea was delicious, by the way.
