Bob, effervesces from the behind the desk of BTech’s swanky new Chicago high-rise, “Good morning, Miss Winslow.” “Good morning, Bob,” I force a smile and glance back, the plastic plants stirring a vague memory. Why are security desk guys always old? It must be a Creative Gift found later in life. “I’ll see you tomorrow morning, Miss Winslow. You have a nice day.” No Bob, sorry you won’t. I have a little surprise in store today. The times they are a changin.’ And it’s not just about breakfast anymore.
