Subject: You seen my contractor??
I'm missing a contractor. The one that has been v-e-r-y slowly putting
together our bakery. The walk-in freezer is up and running but he needs
to tweak the set points. The new tile floor is layed but he needs to
finish up with the sheets of washable wallboard and install the cove
base. The new and improved wet fire suppression system is installed but
he needs to make the tie-in to the HVAC. The three-compartment sink is
sitting in the middle of the room and needs to be installed after he has
the water lines run. As well as the handwash sink. As well as the
vegetable sink. They delivered the 40gallon Davrick bagel boiler
yesterday. As the guy was coming down with the liftgate and exclaiming
how heavy that thing is I was seized with the thought that I hadn't
measured to see if it would fit through the door. Whew. The good Lord
must like bagels 'cause it fit easily. The equipment guy in El Paso
called to say the new rollers and conveyor belts were in and being
installed on the bagel cutter and former machines. The baker called and
said she is okay with the schedule but is looking forward to not having
to drive 160 miles roundtrip to bake for her local catering business.
The newly opened european grill and the not-quite-as-new italian place
are both asking when the wholesale gelato will be available. The only
one who hasn't called is the contractor. If you see him tell him those
bagels won't boil themselves.

You will probably find him across town working on the project that has
a penalty clause for late completion. :-)

Bernie,
I hate to tell you this, but I met him in an adult bookstore and we
went to a motel after that. He used your money to pay for it and after
one night, we knew that we were in love.
We are both on a flight to Fuji as I type these words. He wanted me
to tell you he is sorry, but this was unexpected and even his wife and
children don't know. Could you please tell them?
Bernie, please try and understand and if it had not been for you, he
would not have been in that area and he and I would never have met.
Please know that as long as we both shall live (together), we will
fondly remember you as our own "cupid."

Bernie, no problem. Call ICE and ask when Julio will be released. If they
say he's being deported, just do what every other self-respecting American
businessman would do. Drive to your nearest Home Depot and get another
contractor. Sheesh, do I have to tell you everything?

Well, since you're in New Mexico it probably isn't because the surf's
up the way it is here. And it isn't a painter, so drugs are less
likely to be involved. Can't help you, sorry. Good luck, though; the
world can always use more decent bagels.

Best,
David
