She was sure this would be the highlight of the trip for everyone: introducing colleagues from work to the joy of Pepe’s clam pie. It was a little early for dinner, but as the pie arrived, and the fragrance of clams, bacon and oregano wafted upwards, there was a brief, almost reverential pause before they grabbed a slice. It was terrific; she still could not decide if it was better with or without cheese, although without cheese seemed to be the winner for the others. And since everything balances – the hotel they stayed in that night was a real disappointment.
