The holidays are over and life seems to be returning back to normal, the tree is down, put away and all signs of Christmas have pretty much disappeared with the exception of some flowers, Back to the work at the clinic, was very busy Monday and Tuesday, made for long days and was glad when they ended.
Wednesday I had a lunch date with my special little friend, met her halfway at a Texas Roadhouse, just so nice to see her again she got her vaccine, told her I would be getting mine in a couple of weeks. Afterwards went out in the car, exchanged gifts, she wanted to see my now bald twooty, just glad I had worn a skirt with no underwear. Think we could have destroyed a car but with too much traffic neither of us look good in cuffs and sitting in the back of a police car. Maybe before long a night together.
Worked the bar Thursday and was I dreading it with what had happened in Washington Wednesday, there is an unwritten rule nor religion, no politics, not talking about somebody’s wife. Bartenders are fair game. OK!!! Opened, my regulars at their table, set 32 TVs to as much sports as possible then trouble arrived, had him before, mouthy little guy who always complains about a short pour. Dealt with people like him before so I set the glass down in front of him, then the bourbon. You want 2 fingers, 2 cubes. What I want. Poured his bourbon, well??? Looks good, added his 2 rocks, was he quiet.
My 2 favorite people came in, martinis with extra picks of olives, fooled me up, wanted the club with extra chips. Big sandwich going to need a to go box. Later got the box, extra plate of chips, made them happy, asked them how they liked the fudge, he liked the chocolate, she liked the peanut butter. Asked them how New Year’s Eve was, said they were both dead to the world by 10. I was in bed by 9:30, you guys are party animals.
The rest of the day came and went, few mentions of Washington but the regulars quickly shut them down. I try to run a tight ship, they know it and I really think they respect me for going so. Got home that night and my hubby made me some blackened catfish, corn on the cob and green beans. Afterwards what is under those tights, find out for yourself big boy, think he is liking Gertrude smooth again.
