Parting is such sweet sorrow

While in the process of remodeling my house I decided to enter another life changing event, I got a new job. Why not add a little more stress to my life? You only live once, so go for the gusto. Sounds like a beer commercial!

The hardest part of the change was that I liked my old job. I've been there a long time and developed many friendships. Easy money as they say. I worked with a group of the most adventurous foodies you could imagine. I'm going to miss them.

On my last day, in my honor, they executed an extreme lunch. Chef Randy pulled out all the stops and created a masterpiece. Below witness the results.

Judging from the lunch they organized for you this does sound like an amazing place to work. How luck are you to have friends like that? Your new job is going to be great but don't lose touch with the foodies from your old position!
