Last Friday night I decided to stop by the Wing lab to order some wings. While I was ordering, I heard the door open behind me and the lady taking my order, Mya asked me a question with a very straight and curious look, but she asked the question so fast that I could not really make out what she was trying to ask me. So I replied with a “sorry, what?”, indicating that I needed her to repeat the question, but Mya kept her mouth shut and just swiped my credit card acting like she did not remember that she had just asked me a question 30 seconds ago.
At first, I was confused, but then I brushed it off like it was no big deal. Suddenly, I looked back to see who had just walked in; there were four Mexican males behind me. Two grown men and two Mexican boys who were all short for their age brackets. As soon as I saw them it clicked and it was as if I heard Mya repeat the question clearly in my mind.
