Cinco de Mayo where are you? – I am craving Mexican food. We don’t have great Mexican restaurants here – not authentic ones. I was in San Antonio a few years back and still dream about the food but it’s a little far to drive for dinner. This week I am trying a new restaurant with some friends. Maybe this will be the one.
Magazines, rest in peace – I am transitioning to a new hairstyle. You need to use the right words. I watched a bunch of YouTube videos but I am old school. I wanted to leaf through some hairstyle magazines. We have a local store that has a huge magazine and book section. There were books on chickens (several — raising chickens must be the in-thing), gardening, cooking and food, clothing styles, teenage heart throbs but none devoted to hair. Are magazines a dying art form?
Quality control on strike? – Last year I bought several pair of jeans. After trying a gazillion on, I found the right manufacturer with the right style, color and size. I bought four all the same or so I thought. After washing them (big warnings that they will discolor your skin if you don’t wash them first!) I put them in rotation on the shelf. One pair is very snug. I wore them twice, now they are in the donation basket. I hate when that happens!
It’s not the same – Last summer my brother-in-law brought a bag of cheddar-buffalo waffle-sliced potato chips to the beach. I shouldn’t like them for so many reasons but his wife and I finished off the whole bag in a half hour (that has to be a record even for my chip fetish). I found them this past week. Same brand. I didn’t enjoy them as much. Maybe they need to be eaten at the beach or with friends or while having fun. Or maybe it was the beer chaser!
Alright, alright, alright! – It’s been a week of things going right. I had to make a few decisions and some appointments. Everything worked out. That is so unusual that we are going out to celebrate. (Then again, we will use any excuse or none to celebrate!) Don’t you just love that smooth voice??
So how was your week? Alright, alright, alright?
