The waiter stopped what he was doing and silently snatched the fly out of the air. He walked away with his cupped hands to dispose of the fly and wash up and then resumed his preparation of the salad. 'The table didn't even notice,' Vrignaud remembers, still in awe. "I said, 'This guy's a Jedi waiter.'" [Metroactive]
