Well, I head back to work today. Now, isn't that thrilling news? Dealing with customers? One thing that will keep foot traffic down will be the high temps. We're supposed to crest the 100 (F) wave today... and tomorrow. In fact, tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter then today. And if you decide to shop my store, don't expect the A/C to cool you off the moment you walk through the door. Nope. It's going to be roasty toasty because we have so many large doors that allow in the smothering heat. For example, one of our roll-up doors in the back of the building is twenty feet wide, and it's open most of the day to accept deliveries.
Of course, this is a mini work week. In 4 days I'll begin another 6 day vacation and shortly after that I'll have another 3 weeks vacation on the books.
I made one of my favorite dishes yesterday for dinner, Shrimp Lo Mein. Simply tasty.
I understand the figures from the last census get released today and there's fear the Republicans are going to use them to gerrymander the country to hell in order to stay in power. This is... rather amusing. Why? Well one of the pre-release tidbits that came out yesterday is that the country is rapidly diversifying. Translation? White people simply aren't making enough babies. All I have to do is look at my nieces and nephews to see the truth in that. And the Republican Party is the party of the white voter, a party that is in deep denial about the changes happening in America. They don't seem to understand that at some point their grandchildren are going to begin paying the price for this denial.
Ah, well, this is how it goes.
