Weight: I’ll guess about 159#! Not!
Silhouette: And kinda like Jackie Gleason’s, only different.
Attitude: Triumphant! (wow, really?) I slept like a rock and woke up feeling much better!
Breakfast Must have Cocoa Puffs, again. But don’t worry; these are the new Cocoa Puffs with ‘explosion’ puffs! Much better for you than the old round, NON explosion puffs.
Lunch: On the way back to Menards a nice police officer thought she’d give me a little break. So while she ran my plates and all of that, I got to listen to talk radio and eat grapes! Of course this delay just made me more hungry than ever, and yesterday’s Big Mac attack came back with a vengeance. After another long delay in the shingle zone at Menards I succumbed to the golden arches and wolfed down a whole BM meal, and with a chocolate milk shake to boot (do you really have to know EVERYTHING?).
Dinner: So the roofing job became a bigger deal than expected. Kiki and Josh left for the 2 1/2 hour drive home and I worked till 7. Noah came home hungry and I stayed long enough to have dinner with him. He told me to decide where to eat, and then, while I was pondering the options, he announced ‘KFC’. We both had a two piece meal with mac and cheese and potatoe wedges. Did I peel all the deep fried breading off the potatoes? Why, did the cop cut me a break and only give me three WARNINGS? No, and Yes! (You figure it out)
Challenges: Big Mac meal with a whipped cream topped milk shake (I opted the cherry off the top). FAILURE, FAILURE, FAILURE
KFC meal? I’m glad to be going home tonight.
Thoughts: Whatever was left of my head cold this morning was burned out and sweated away this afternoon. Praise God for recovery!
It’s always a pleasure to hang out with Noah! He gives me good advice (“Hemingway’s rule was to write one GOOD paragraph a day” Noah says. “What’s a Hemingway?” I say.), and then he asks me if I’m actually working on my novel, or just dreaming about it. Why do I have to spend time with that brat?
