I’m in a ‘Jagged Little Pill’ kind of mood tonight. It just seems like a lot is happening right now, and the upcoming holidays aren’t exactly helping my continual attempts to maintain balance in my life. As much as I love spending time with my family (they are a pretty cool bunch, I must say), I would equally-as-much love to just have a peaceful quiet solo Thanksgiving – spent in bed with Chipotle & Netflix *insert fist pump*. Ironic to some maybe…..but not so much to me. I value my solo time like a prized possession. Alas, my presence is expected elsewhere and my attempts at trying to provide some semblance of an alternate explanation for my desired whereabouts are being sorely misunderstood…..because people want to see me and I’m supposed to help cook…….& I don’t even particularly like to cook…… Le sigh. And so I will be making the trek to fulfill my familial duties for the day & my solo vacay will have to be put on ‘pause’ for another occasion. In the meantime, having Alanis to sing/scream along with in the car will certainly help make the car trip that much more enjoyable 🙂
This is the first entry of a series I’d like to call – ‘Random Thursday’, where I will post the random conversations that are shared among friends and within my head. I’m pretty random….and so are my friends – so you should expect a new entry every week, along with some recycled postings from my previous random-loving blog. Enjoy 🙂
So I’m visiting a friend of mine for a fun night over one of our favorite shows – SVU. We stan for Benson, and our shared love is one of the threads that holds our friendship together. My friend happened to be eating a Subway sub upon my arrival at his place, and being the polite young man that he tries to present himself to be, he offers me some of his sandwich. I was kind of hungry, and gladly accepted – to which he gave me a disappointed and slightly angry face. “Did you just Theo Dance Mania me?” I asked him. He looks at me, laughing before replying ‘Yes’, and then proceeds to cut the half of the sandwich previously given to me into fourths. I gave him the side-eye before eating my fourth of a sandwich – which was absolutely delish, and learned a valuable lesson from this whole ordeal. One, Subway sandwiches are the bomb.com, and two, never expect a friend’s food offer to be given with joy. Yes they may give you their food, but they won’t be happy about it…..at least the greedy ones won’t be.
