Finally Friday!!!



So, I woke up late on Friday and had to hustle into work. I made it but just barely. 

I went to Time Out for lunch and got one of the specials: a quarter-pound cheese burger for $5.99 and, instead of the fries (which I don’t need), a bowl of the “Mexican Beef Stew.” The beef stew was stuffed with jalapenos peppers and some odd dumpling mix.

Sidebar: Mexicans make dumplings? I thought that was more Germanic or Polish. Which brings up fish tacos. I like fish tacos. I love a good fish taco! But, are they real? I mean, America seems to “twist” or “create” our own versions of various culture’s food (think Taco Bell – which I also love, BTW!) So, were there fish taco’s 100 years ago in Mexico or is this something SoCal made up? Sign this part of the post: Epicurious. I suppose I could check Snopes, but I no longer trust them, thanks to Jake.

Anyway, I ate about half of stew and the cheeseburger. It was a beautiful summer day, so I took a relaxing drive though Hines Park. But then I remembered my truck was dirty. So, I went and got it washed before returning to work.

The afternoon passed slowly as they always do on a Friday/payday. But I finally was headed home at 5:00 p.m.

I treated the cat and changed clothes. Since it was payday, I paid some bills online and updated my check register and budget spreadsheets. I watched the end of the Nightly News instead of cleaning out more gutters.

When I got hungry, I toasted some bread and made myself a fried egg sandwich (with cheese, please).

My back was hurting, so I moved to the living room chair and read until bedtime.
