Today, it was pretty slow for a Thursday, but that actually helped me accomplish my main task: reorganize ll of the cheeses in the cheese cases. Big time. Until this morning, the blue cheeses and cheddars were behind the register in a back case, and the other cheeses were up in front. The result was that the front case looked a little sparse, and no one could see the blues or cheddars at all.
NO LONGER! I spent three whole hours taking all of the cheeses out of all of the cases, and re-wrapping them to just cover the paste with plastic (the rind now can breathe better!). Then, I put ALL of the cheeses, including blues and cheddars, in the front case. They were organized by milk type, with the cow’s milk in the middle. Of course, as soon as I was finished, a customer came in and I had to unwrap and redo like 6 of them. Now, though, she could eye the blues and the cheddars and all of the other cheeses all at the same time! It’s a pretty impressive sight, if you ask me.
In the evening, Carlos came in and stood in front of the counter, silent, his arms crossed. He gave an approving grunt and nod, and I knew it was all right! I forgot my camera, though, so I could not take any photos. I will soon, though. Since I know I have much to do before next Saturday, I can’t guarantee the photos will go online that soon. I’ll do my best!
No matter what Carlos or the owners may think, I do know I’m proud of my work! I also know that I really smelled of cheese when I left. While at choir practice tonight, I caught a faint odor of Stinking Bishop emanating from my hands.
