Human beings

A new maître ‘d – pretty and charming – was working at Sant Ambroeus.
She told me that she was going to acting classes.
“I love transformations,” she said. “I really love transformations.”
“Who doesn’t?” I mumbled, because I didn’t really know how to continue the conversation. But then I realized that there must be people who dislike transformations.
The metamorphosis is not something all human beings aspire to.
But I do, I love transformations.
