Random Guest Compliments:
“I love the food here.”
“The scenery’s not bad either.”
“Yeah. I definitely come here for the scenery.”
Should I be offended that I am considered scenery? In my way, I am. In my way, I am not at all.
“Hey, RG, you look incredible, baby, as always. What’s up?”
Thanks. I do not look incredible. You know that. You know I look beat to death after a sleepless night and a long day shift punctuated by a busy lunch. Have a great dinner shift. I am off and away as you come on. I miss you all, though. Quite a lot. Who would have thought?
“You are the perfect girl. Perfect. I wish I could make it happen. But I have so many issues to sort through. Oh and no more texts or calls this weekend, okay?” Okay. Too bad you are so nice. Too bad you have so many issues. Too great that I do not.
“Let’s pack a picnic in a cooler, go to the boat parade, and drink the champagne I bought for the boy who never showed when I thought he would. Ha!”
Sounds good to me. One should always drink champagne and raise a toast to oneself. And to friendship found.
No worries. I get it. Doesn’t mean I like it. Doesn’t mean it doesn’t drive me insane. Yeah, no worries.

“You are my angel. You are. Without you, what? What would I do?”
Without me it would have taken a lot longer to process a zillion gift certificate purchases on this crazy evening. But I appreciate the sentiment, regardless.
My site has been down for three days. Clearly, a grinch got to it. I am still out here. I am still writing. Hang in here with me, because not everything is fixed, yet.
Some days of some weeks are better than others.
These were not them.
