Zanna is a lovely young woman who worked with my wife at Starbucks. She's now at a store a mile away. (yes, they ARE everywhere!) My wife and I call Zanna, "Our kid." We love her like our daughter, and try to make her happy. I discovered that her little girl fantasy was to be a model. Of course I did a fashion shoot with her. She brought her two best friends, and I've never seen her happier. After the shoot, My wife and I took every one to a little Mexican cantina for drinks. Her eyes got bigger three days later when I gave her a portfolio of her fashion shots. Recently, I gave her a life home after work. She was making some difficult decisions. My job was to listen. By the time I got her home she felt better. As she opened the door, I touched her shoulder gently, and she flew into my arms and hugged me very tightly. That meant more to me than the Pulitzer.
