I’m thinking of making Mark a t-shirt that says “I’m the baker” because it occurred to me that some people might think I’m the one who bakes since I’m the main blogger, the one who tweets and especially because I’m customer service. This is why I’m glad that the Brooklyn Flea is all his, so that he can have a turn as the “face” of the business, though, as I understood it, some visitors were a bit puzzled to find Mark at the table last weekend and not some Asian girl they associate with W&S because of our avatar. So do I help with the baking at all? No. Remember when I wrote this?. It’s still true. I haven’t cooked a real meal in well over 3 years, maybe longer. I know what you’re thinking: how could one so into food not cook at all? I really don’t know.
But this post isn’t about that, it’s about Mark, who works long days into the night to get all our orders out, baking like he’s 2 people instead of 1 person, all while taking care of the kids and cooking all our meals (yes, I am working late into the night as well, in case you were wondering where I am in all this). Sometimes I feel like he doesn’t get enough credit since he’s often behind the scenes. You know, he’s like the drummer and I’m the lead singer if we were in a band. But seriously, if you’re at the Flea tomorrow (btw, watermelon coolers will be back tomorrow!), say hello to Mark and give him a pat on the back. He literally hasn’t had a moment’s rest or a work-free evening since Christmas. That’s no joke.
