I had an absolute BLAST!
It was a long first day, 3:00 PM until 10:00 PM but it was so much fun. Running concessions, fun? Yes. Most often with parent boosters, I would get assigned in leadership areas but I always wanted to work parking or concessions. Even when I signed up for those areas I would be asked to please switch to something else.
My partner for this shift was an Oakwood High School graduate, Lochlan Hendrix, who is now a sophomore at The University of Michigan. We clicked and really had a great time working together. He is scheduled for Carillon Cafe for Friday and Saturday and is hoping to switch to work with me in The Roundhouse Cafe.
The Guests could not have been more gracious and delightful.
Since I am over 21, I got to be bartender which I found to be an absolute hoot. I didn’t realize you could add liquor to hot chocolate! I was ready to start tossing those bottles like a regular Tom Cruise!
As Lochlan and I walked to the parking lot, we got to see the Carillon tree of light got the first time. It was a nice way to close my first day of “A Carillon Christmas.”
It’s 11:06 PM and I’m in bed with The Sisters snuggled closely to me. My legs ache, terribly, but that is nothing new.
Time for sleep.
