{ Feature Friday } Sal!

Today’s feature is The Man.The Myth.The Legend…Sal! There is no better time to start writing from my point of view than the present { Hi, my name is Laura and I write these blogs } and I can’t wait for you to meet my Sal Pal. Back in October when I started working with the team, I quickly dubbed Mr. Salvatore Bovino “Sal Pal” because one, I love a cheesy rhyme and two, it is so true. Once you meet Sal, you get a Pal for life! { But seriously, meet him once and he’ll remember you forever }

A notorious joke teller, this cheerful man is behind the wheel for The Fleuriste driving our van and helping us with any number of odd jobs around the store. He knows every back road in town, the dirt on every family you’ve ever heard of, still uses a flip phone and has a heart of gold! If you really want to get to know Sal, you’ll have to catch him at happy hour. { he prefers Skyy } Otherwise, for the immediate inquiring minds, I’ve asked all of the hard questions below.

Sal | The Fleuriste

How long have you been at The Fleuriste? Just a little over five years

What is your favorite part of your job? I love working with the other members of the team. I also love to deliver flowers to the ladies who are home and see their smiling faces!

What does a typical work day look like? When I first get to work, I’ll see what we have on the calendar for the day and get my instructions. Each day is different, which keeps it interesting for me. { Side note: I love sending Sal on errands for us. He is Team Fleuriste’s best PR because he knows everyone in town! }

What’s your favorite flower? Godetia

What’s your favorite thing to do when you aren’t working? I like to mingle! { Side note: This was seriously his answer and all I got out of him! }

Where did you work before The Fleuriste? Right before coming to The Fleuriste, I worked at Michael’s Florist for eight years to the day. Before that, I was retired but before that, I was in the restaurant business. My late wife and I owned Sissy’s Tea and Luncheon Room in the First National Center. She wouldn’t let me in the kitchen so I worked the front of the restaurant while she was in the back!

Do you have a { clean and short } joke you can share with us? That’s too hard. I don’t have many of those and can’t remember any right now. { Side note: this is the honest truth. Sal’s jokes need adult supervision }
