Torturer ...

Oh, it feels so good, chasing your girl out of bed at 7:00am, make her coffee half decaf (entkoffeiniert), give her the stink eye (boeser Blick), if she isn't up on the aerial lift by 8:00am, and make her stay at least 15 feet above ground until the sun sets.

Ok, who the heck do you guys think I am?! Seriously, I'd rather have E! stay in bed and be pampered all day long than see the anguish in her eyes before she gets up there each morning.

Yet, we have a lot of work to do, and much of it takes some skill and knowledge, or simply strength, which makes a lot of work fall into my lap, and therefore E! gets stuck with jobs that may look less glorious, more dirty, or simply boring.

Rest assured though, that this will be turned upside down once we open the restaurant. E! is a great business woman, she has a fantastic palette (Geschmacksnerven), and knows how to manage people, while I will be stuck cleaning glasses, roto-rooting overflown toilets, and schlep provisions around.

E! and I are a team with individual strengths and weaknesses, and we complement each other rather well.
