I just want everyone to know that I’m having a Bloody Mary at 11:50pm on President’s Day Holiday. I’ve been craving a bloody and didn’t get my bloody mary fix this weekend. A week or so ago, I happened upon a vat of Ketel One discounted at Albertson’s along with some Bloody Mary mix. I figured I could fix myself a bloody whenever I wanted. Well tonight is the night. Cheers to our presidents!
My aunt called me and asked if I’d spoken to either of my parents. She had gone down to LA with two of my other aunts, along with my parents, to see my nephew Dominic. “I just got home,” she hollered through the phone. “Have you talked to your mom or dad?”
Nope, I hadn’t.
“Your mom’s still in LA. She didn’t come back with us. She was sobbing. She didn’t want to leave the baby. So she stayed.”
“OmiGod,” I hollered back. “What about her job? She was going to go back for the Christening this weekend anyway. What’s the big deal? She couldn’t leave for four days??? Geez!”
Too funny. I mean, the baby’s cute and all. But all he does is poop and sleep. What’s all the fuss? I’ll be back down this weekend so I’ll get my Dominic time. The best will be when he’s talking and walking. Then I can take him to the park and make him run laps with me around the track. That will be fun.
Alright, back to the bloody. And back to some work before going to bed.
