I recently reached out to Cathy Alifrangis to be our featured disher in Letâ€™s Dishâ€™s monthly e-newsletter. Cathy is retired (she says dishing and not cooking adds to the joy of retirement and has a daughter away at college. She has also dished with us, oh, 69 times. Sheâ€™s what weâ€™d call a â€śseasoned disherâ€ť. One of the questions I posed to Cathy was, â€śWhy do you dish?â€ť Hereâ€™s her response:
I keep going back because of the staff at Ashburn. I canâ€™t imagine not seeing them once a month. We lament about growing old, share stories about our families, and tease about sports teams. (Last month I had to eat humble pie, even though not on the Letâ€™s Dish menu, when the Capitals moved on and my Penguins were eliminated.) I see the staff more often than most of my relatives. I watch them interacting with new and returning Dishers and, from what I see, I know I am not the only person who feels this way. This group is like a perfect recipe. Take good ingredients and add spice!
We only have so much space in our newsletter, and I thought this was just too good to shorten! Thank you, Cathy, for sharing – and thanks for being such a loyal customer and friend of the Letâ€™s Dish! family. We love the pic, and we donâ€™t hold it against you that youâ€™re a Penguins fan!
Ever feel like youâ€™re part of the â€śDishâ€ť family? Have a story to share? Weâ€™d love to hear it! And maybe youâ€™re the perfect candidate to be our next featured disher. (Psst! Thereâ€™s about 10 minutes of fame and a Letâ€™s Dish! gift card in it for you!). Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your Letâ€™s Dish! story (and pic).
