It was going to happen sooner or later. Today was the day.
Yes, I ordered breakfast from the senior menu.
Three important things I am pondering about this experience:
1. I barely looked at the main menu and quickly got excited about the senior menu.
2. The waiter didn’t question my age.
3. It was almost too much food.
Still worse things have happened to a man. No, I am not going to list them.
This is just a week where I am feeling a bit old. Yesterday I went to the drug store and actually bought medications and associated health products. Then when I got home I found the pharmacy had mailed my prescription refills which forced me to reorganize my medication shelf in the bathroom.
Before breakfast this morning Heather and I made an early morning outing to the blood lab so I could get my six month blood tests. Yes, we decided to make a special occasion out of it by eating breakfast out. Then we had real excitement by going to the pet store to buy cat food and a new litter box. We also stopped by Home Depot to buy things – if I could find the receipt, I’d be able tell you what we bought…
I know, I know – it’s a wild life we’re living, but I am not going to slow down just because I now order from the senior menu.
Well, this afternoon I am amusing myself by checking my email to see if the lab results are ready yet. Almost as much fun as watching baseball – “Well, this is exciting, Andrew’s blood count is rock solid normal again.”
Tomorrow is likely to be a bit more adventurous for me. I’ll be spending all day at the San Jose Poetry Festival. Don’t know what that will be like as this is the first time I’ve attended anything like this. I am not really sure what to expect, but I figured that if I am going to be writing poetry books, I should get connected to the local poetry scene.
I am just hoping that the chairs are comfortable and the restrooms are near by.
I’ll tell you all about the festival next week and on Wednesday look forward to seeing pictures of my finished cross.
Till next week,
