Finally Friday

It was freaking cold Friday morning. I didn't notice it here, but when I got to work, all the grass was tipped with frost.

I was a little late. I dawdled  over my breakfast of toast and my cubicle buddy, Courtney's, fresh made raspberry jam. She gave me apple butter last week, so I was in heaven!

I went to Time Out for lunch and got the fish and chips. It was funny. I pulled in to the handicapped spot (it's in view from inside) and before I got inside, Dan, the owner, had grabbed the Dijon mustard and set it on my table. I explained that its only for the mushroom and Swiss burger and I wanted the fish and chips.

Then, before I was even seated, the waitress Nancy came up with a glass of water and the specials card. But, the other waitress, Amanda, said it was her turn to wait on me. Nancy told her, "There's another guy who just came in. You take care of him and I'll do John."

Amanda, who is much younger than Nancy, pouted and moved on. But, later, she stopped by and told me she spoke to Nancy and said she didn't appreciate her hijacking me. Nancy said she would give her my tip. Amanda replied, "I don't want his tip. I wanted to wait on him!"

Sidebar: Amanda and I have some sort of bond...

Anyway, it was kind of fun having them fight over me, LOL!

After work, I went to get my haircut. I always get that done on Saturday morning, but I had a doctor's appointment scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Both my barber and I remarked on how weird it was to be there on a Friday.

I should have went grocery shopping (Kroger is right across the street) but I was tired and my back hurt, so I headed home. It was late (maybe 5:30 p.m.) so the roads were crowded. Then I got stopped on Inkster for what seemed like the world's longest train Sigh...

I ate the rest of the chicken fried rice for dinner.

I saw a few more fruit flies. Rather that going the cling wrap/bowl route, this time I went with my nephew Jeff's suggestion and used a finishing nail to punch holes in a Mason Jar lid.


I'll dump it out when they are gone and keep it under the sink to use when needed.

My daughter Melissa called and there went most of the night.

I watched some TV but just could not fall asleep

    I’ve never understood why you tend to seem more aggravated than appreciative when people do nice things for you. Why didn’t you just thank him? Just curious…

  2. I didn't notice feeling "aggravated."

  3. What I am hearing is that a great Christmas gift would be a condiment bandolier, so the staff doesn't have to guess which one to put out.
