Ah, Thursday morning at the Greek diner. Across from my office is that small diner run by these two old Greek men. It is called Olympios, but then due to the amount of construction in the area they added "Crow Bar" to the name.
Anyway, the men who run the place are real sweet. I always get a wink when I walk in there. This morning - and a sunny beautiful morning it is - the shorter of the pair was remarking on how lovely the day is. Then he said this:
"Only three weeks left of winter. Then the sun, and the grass comes out. And the Park, full of lovers. Now, just ducks go in the park."
Is that optimistic or what?
