My recent problem which is getting worse is that I no longer know when I am hungry. I eat at work at specific times, but not because I'm hungry. On weekends, I just kind of forget to eat. The only way I realize that I'm probably hungry is the nasty headache and a bit of an upset stomach. I don't know if this is a symptom of something, but I'm trying not to let WebMD rule my life.
Last night I told Kiddo before bed that we would be going to Denny's this morning for breakfast so to be ready to go at 10. At 8:30 I woke up to a viciously pounding headache along with a good bit of nausea. I trucked off to the bathroom and noticed that her door was cracked and the light and TV were on. I knocked and peeked in to find her sitting on the floor, fully dressed, watching TV. She looked at me slightly confused (since I was still in my bathrobe) and all I could say was "Forgot to turn your clock back, huh?" The look was priceless.
We ended up leaving a little earlier than 10 because I really needed to get some food in me. Over to Denny's we went, since we all know that I hate IHOP. It was about a 15 minute wait, which I can deal with. Every time we've gone in there, the same guy is at the host stand taking names and getting asses in seats. Today, he was MIA. Insert train wreck here.
We finally got a seat and watched 4 different waitresses walk past us and not a one said a word to us. I'm hungry and therefore pretty annoyed. After 5 minutes, I was past annoyed. We agreed that if we didn't have someone at least speaking to us in the next 5, we were gonna give up the fight. Right then, I also called Sergio's, the most rockin' Cuban restaurant EVER! They just don't speak a lot of English. Someone picked up and I tried to ask them how long the wait was. I got put on hold as I could hear the girl who answered the phone yelling "ENGLISH!!" Not funny then, very funny now. Someone finally came on and I asked how long for a table of three. He said that he had three people on the list right now and he would put me on but I had to PROMISE that I would be there in five minutes. I told him we'd be there in three.
Still never having seen a waitress to get as much as some silverware or a glass of water, we walked out. I have never done that before in my life. Sergio's in only a few blocks away from Denny's and Kiddo and I got out while Lovey parked the car. We had barely walked in the place when they were calling us for our table. Less than 2 minutes and we had water. Another minute and we had silverware. We had barely finished looking at the menu when our waitress was there to take our order. Oh how I love you cafe con leche. Less than 2 minutes and we had our coffee. I am not exaggerating when I say it was less than 5 minutes before we had all of our food. That's right. In less time than it took to get seated an aggravated at Denny's, we had been seated, served, and were almost finished eating.
Btw, if you're ever in Miami and you go to Sergio's (and I suggest it), be aware that when they say you're getting two scrambled eggs, you're really getting somewhere in the neighborhood of five. All full of cheese with a side of bacon and the hugest piece of toasty, buttery Cuban bread ever. Artery clogging? Yes, Delicious and well worth it? Hell yes.
My boys don't play till tomorrow so I went to do a little shopping today. Hi Macy's. I love when the things I want are 40% off and on top of that you let me use my coupon for another 30% off. I think I got 4 tops and 2 skirts for about a C-note.
Lovey's aunt made some delicioso chicken with onions and peppers. I love peppers. I can't wait to eat it. Sometimes I think she's trying to fatten me up since they're always telling me (and Lovey) that I'm too skinny. Ah well. I don't have that badonkadonk butt, but I can deal with that. 🙂
Oh yeah, last thing. Today was the last day of early voting. On my way to the mall, I drove by the place we voted. The line was wrapped all the way around the library. I'm thinking it had to have been at least a five hour wait. People are serious about some voting down here! I think I'm gonna need to do some volunteering in these last couple of days.
That's all I've got for you today…as if I didn't ramble enough. I hope that you've all enjoyed your weekend. See you again tomorrow for more misadventures of the house of Shyne. MWAH!
