Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


"It's not far, just a few hundred yardswhich is anathema to as many HBers as would probably baulk at walking in LA, although there they would likely cite crime as their reasonit's the first one I opened on my own, while Dad was still running the other three, and though I learned the ropes by Mom and Dad's side in the kitchens, at home and in the restaurants, opening my ownand Thai at thatwas really flying by the seat of my pants, but I've always relished a challenge, it's not about making moneynot for me, anywayI love cooking, for a full house, or for myself, at home, d'you know, Lolly came over a couple of times, to my apartment, and said that she trusted me, ha, ha, she was a bit of a picky eater, not on any particular diet, but there were some things didn't agree with her and she always carried a little bottle of some emollient in her purse, maybe she has an ulcer? but I tell you one thing, she was ambidextrous, like me, which most chefs are—is it something we're born with, or acquire through practice? I dunno—and she can juggle, she's got strong hands, wrists and arms, I've watched her juggling with three, no five wine bottles and they are heavy things, my wrists couldn't have done it, I can't juggle anyway but to send five unopened bottles of wine spinning through the air, catching them and keeping it going was amazing, Jessica was there too, yeah, the three of us, Lolly said we were HB's Three Musketeers!"
