I was getting ready to sing a love song to my wife, then looked at myself and decided that I looked like Dracula. I can’t remember the love song, but this one made me laugh.
I may not always be the most chipper on a Monday morning, but I can generally fake it until I make it, or the coffee takes hold. This morning there was no faking it, no making it, just trying to get through having a case of the Mondays and hoping Tuesday brings a betterness feeling to start the day. I kinda of wish I could blame alcohol, but it was just a Monday hangover.
With the arrival of a nice Sunday, and a whole lot of rain behind me, and a whole lot of rain behind me, it was time to see if I can get another year out of “The Beast,” my vintage Craftsman riding mower. I learned a lot of things today while seeing if I might need to do some mower repairing, like I should really sing louder into the built-in mike on my phone when I’m outside.
As quickly as it seemed to appear, it was gone. It’s the Cookie Butter Bar at Starbucks, and my wife told me about it a couple of weeks ago. Now it’s gone. Why the coffee folks would get rid of the best bakery item of all time is beyond me. Maybe they’ll bring it back, but for now I’m just sad.
If you’re sick, and you like donuts, may I recommend a donut to help you feel better? Sure, the feeling may not last all day, but for those few moments the yumminess entering your belly will help you forget how crappy you feel.
This week has sucked with my fighting general sickness, even to the point of going to my doctor. Ugh. I hate going to the doctor for my yearly check-up, even more when sick. She gave me some meds, though, and hopefully I’m on my way to feeling better. I’m lucky, though, because I have a great woman who takes care of me when I’m sick. Milo has also been great because he’s a dog that likes to cuddle when you are sick.
Last year was a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day as I had bangers with my eggs. This year St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Friday during Lent, so it’s no meat for me, although there are some religious clergy saying it’s okay to eat meat today, which to me just seems like a slap in the face of the whole point of giving up meat on Fridays during Lent.
