I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

A La Carte

 Well, it's Sunday.  Because I work, this will not be a day of rest... slow boredom, perhaps.  After 12 noon, I'll be the only one at the flooring desk.  This is vacation season.  Not only are customers spending their hard earned dollars getting a little Rest and Relaxation, so are associates.  I have met most of my goals, so I'm not concerned.

Weather wise, we are heading into the doldrums of temps in the mid 80s (F).  That's right.  Forecasters are saying that for the next 2 weeks we rarely get past 85 (F).  I'm fine with that.  There also doesn't seem to be much rain in forecast.  That's okay, too.  I don't mind not having to mow my lawn.

I stopped off on my way home from work last night to pick up blueberries and ended up buying Chinese for dinner, of course, it couldn't be simple.  The Chinese food can be purchased a la carte, or from the buffet table.  As I was perusing the berries, there was small family ordering a la carte, and behind them a mother and daughter who were pushing around full grocery carts.  Realizing that the a la carte people were going to take a while I wondered around for 4 or 5 minutes, returning to get in line as they were leaving and the mother and daughter were preparing to give their order.  Instead of using their time in line to decided what they wanted for dinner, that's when the mother and daughter began asking each other what they wanted.  So, I had to stand there and wait while they reached a decision on whether they were going to get lo mien or fried rice, and, unfortunately, they too, were ordering a la carte.  Sadly, I don't doubt for a second that this is how they go through life, waiting until the last minute and then indecisive as hell.

And in case you haven't heard, there was a little GOP rally in Iowa and Trump walked on stage to the song lyric, "one could end up going to jail, one could end up being president."  That line about going to jail?  That played as he walked across the stage to the podium.  From what I've read, Team Trump is furious.  So, what does this duffer in orange do?  Insult everybody who isn't kissing his ass.  Even the Governor was not exempt, because she'd had kind words for Tim Scott, who's also running for the nomination.  Ouch.  Even Fox had sad words about the event.

Of course, we're all still wondering about which indictments are going to fall next, Fanni's or Jack's.  The suspense might end this week.


  1. His people are swearing that his events are the biggest events ever, but it's all Crazy Train.

    1. Especially when videos show that most of the Cultists are in the floor seating.

  2. When we'd go to a restaurant the waiter would always give us a menu immediately we sat down but my ex would wait until he came back to take our order to even start looking at it. It used to drive me mad!
