My meal arrived with refried beans instead of the black beans I ordered. Two minutes later he arrived with a BOWL of black beans topped with cheeses.. Then a Mariachi band started playing to tables in our section. It was such a delight.. George tipped them $20. I said "Wow, that was generous!" to which he replied, "Sharon would have loved this.."
When done, we began to pack up the beans to take home when we decided to ask the waiter for sopapillas for dessert. He returned with the yummy dessert when he said he would like to give us complimentary tequila shots! WOW! I said thank you, but no, I wouldn't but I knew George would! We enjoyed the sopapillas and tequila. We got the bill and noticed the sopapillas were not listed. We called him over to point this out when he replied that the dessert was also on him.. What??
George gave him a very generous tip :) We leave and what do I notice on the ground right next to the driver's side door but a little drink umbrella! I immediately felt Sharon. I felt she was with us, making sure we enjoyed the meal, regardless of the snafus, reminding me to breathe and enjoy each moment in life.. The significance of the umbrella is that I saved another little drink umbrella from one Sharon enjoyed many years ago.. Now I know why..
