It is always good to write in praise of an unsung and true hero. Even better whe it is someone you work with. Reda is the head cook here at Free Speech & Liberty Pizza and as a result of an unexpected staffing issue he is now on his sixth consecutive day of work. Thursday to Saturday he has done/is doing an all day 12 hour shift. Cooking is hard and it is hot work. that makes him a bit of a hero.
But what makes him more of a hero is that it is Ramadan. And so on Thursday the poor fellow had to wait until 9.24 PM to have his first drink of anything or his first bite to eat. Yesterday it was 9.22 PM. The smile on his face afterwards was a delight to witness.
It is truly heroic and honour working alongside him. And as a bonus he praised the dishes I have produced at the busiest times, as I found myself back in the kitchen during this short stint at the coalface.
