A Day in the Life

I’m starting to feel like this guy, since I work in the restaurant business.  My nights are usually taken, but it leaves my days wide open. 

I had planned at first to go to outlets in Wrentham, but due to the weather it wouldn’t have worked too well.  So when I stopped in to visit my dad earlier in the day he asked if I needed any money.  I said I didn’t, but then he started pulling out his wallet.  At this point, I wasn’t going to say no again…I’m getting cut off soon.  Let’s be real: they say I’m getting cut off soon, but in reality it will probably never happen.  So I can’t just ask for money all the time.  Instead things will miraculously be paid for, and my mom will still buy me things like furniture and other housewares to get me set up.  Just ask this guy….she still buys him stuff.

The other day I had an interesting time in a beach town nearby.  I spent it with my cousin and we started with lunch at a grocery store.  Weird, huh? (Mind you, this was not Whole Foods or any other chain, it was a neighborhood store)  It was surprisingly delicious.  She got sushi freshly made with kale soup and I had made a salad from their impressive salad bar and had a pea soup to go with (for only $8 total).  We decided it was best to have a lunch date every week at other well priced little restaurants, since there are so many others we want to try.  The town attracts most of its visitors and residents during the summer, because this town is best known for its beaches (Harrison Ford is one summer resident).  For this reason, most of the boutiques I walked into were outrageously priced so it really was just window shopping for me. 

At one point we came across some vineyard vine ties.  She said it before I could, but she read my mind: “Oh I wish I had someone to buy this for.”  If I could dress anyone, they would be so put together.  I tested this theory first on the hero when he said he didn’t want to wear green because, “I don’t want to look like a fuckin leprecan.”  And yet a year later what was his favorite color? 

Our day concluded with us watching the food network for 2.5 hours.  A little Rachel Ray, Tyler Florence, Sandra Lee, Robin Miller and Giada.  I couldn’t leave before Giada, even if this meant I would be late for dinner.  By the way, these long viewings of food network is how I know so many random things about food.  You’d be surprised how much you can learn from just watching tv.  The only downside is it made us hungry just watching it, so we had to make some baba ghanoush before we sat down.  I can’t wait for next week!

    if you can adjust your body to very little sleep, the service industry lifestyle is awesome. I love having a sunny Wednesdays to go out and do stuff while the rest of the world watches from the windows.

    I think I’ve been to that neighborhood store. Is the parking on the right side as you look at the building? I think I got a wrap there once on my way to Dennis.
