What are you craving?
If you frequent my blog (or if you read one of two posts) you would know that I am a food-a-holic, and as said food lover, I don't need to use that fact that I am growing a human as an excuse to crave food. It just comes naturally.
Today's hankering was Doc Watson's. I get the turkey burger with muenster on wheat bread and a side a steamed veggies. It's a perfect meal - protein, whole grains, dairy and veggies. Love it! Plus they have amazing whole grain mustard.
I didn't have a lunch buddy or time for dine-in today so I opted to carry-out. Included in my sack was "silverware.". Here is what I found:
Let's back up a smidge though to the parking lot of Doc's. Have you been to this strip mall? It's interesting. Other businesses include Bigby's, a liquor store with a really great beer selection, a wig/jewelry store (nice combo), Little Ceasars, Tasty Thai, HOTTT Nails (so hot it needs three Ts) that also sells dishware, a of course a generic pharmacy. Get the picture?
As I was pulling out with my fork-less meal, I noticed a girl running into Doc's. Probably late for work. I saw a banana fall out of her pocket. Now, if she is like me, she would be SO DEVASTATED to go have her 3pm snack and realize her banana was gone. So I did what any
*Rolls down window* "Excuse me - you dropped your banana!!!!"
Sometimes I don't realize how loud I can be. I have been told that it is a gift by some and it does come in handy when I am leading tours outside and also through construction zones and when I need to get someone's attention in another state. However....
I think I scared the bejezzzus out of this poor girl by screaming to her about her banana like she had dropped a check for a million dollars and it was headed for the cliffs of Niagara Falls rapidly without a barrel.
After her initial shock, she picked up her precious million dollar banana and went hurriedly on her way. She probably wanted to tell me to go fork myself. I just drove away and for some reason, started laughing like a crazy person replaying in my head the decibel level and phrase of what I just exclaimed.
