Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
-- Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5

All of the dishes prepared with great
attention were not just flavorful but also were pieces of art. Yet
it would be preposterous
to even think of causing a risk of illness to the guests attending the opening.
Chef Ryan would be left
feeling stripped naked, shamefully
betraying his trade
Much to the horror and anger of the
owner, Ryan insisted that they postpone the opening until the invader
could be eradicated or he would have to disclose the problem. The
owner finally agreed. Still Ryan was terminated of his employment soon after the opening
finally took place.
Chef Ryan departed the Old
in search of a new position but with his pride intact.
