Hand some people lemons, and they’ll make lemonade. Give Jon live lobsters, and he’ll end up creating two killer meals.
Yes, an explanation is in order. We’ll let Jon handle that. “My sister sent me lobsters through the mail as a Christmas gift. Great, I thought, just one more thing to add to my to-do list. Of course, I cooked them and they were great. Even better, I saved the cooking stock and later put together a fabulous risotto. I truly maximized those lobsters.”
The moral of the story: Jon likes to be prepared to make the best of any situation. Example: “A client’s family called after his heart attack to ask what to do. I was able to say, you’ve done your planning, all you have to worry about is taking care of him.”
