“You got more of that Chef Boyardee this week?” He asked as his dog barked loudly at a black man walking across the parking lot.
“Mom bought me eight cans yesterday, all beeferoni,” I replied.
“Okay if I come by and get them this afternoon?” He then asked.
“Sure,” I said, warmly. “I will never eat it.”
Dan shook my hand and then pulled out of the parking lot of Rodger’s to go check the dumpster at the convenience store across the street that we both affectionately call Rectum. I walked in and got the super burger plate to-go and I put a picture of it on my photo blog.
I also had some very welcomed good news today. Charlie came over after lunch to talk to me. At first, I thought something was wrong as Charlie is usually always at work in Dadeville this time of the day.
“I paid some men to refinish your hardwood floors today,” He told me.
“You're kidding, right?” I asked, so surprised.
“Nope,” He said. “They started sanding them this afternoon. I gave them a key if that is okay by you.”
“Sure,” I said, ecstatic. “How much is this going to cost?”
“It’s your early birthday present from me,” Charlie replied as he patted me on the back. “I wanted it just as much as you did.”
I could have never afforded to get my hardwood floors refinished and am so excited about seeing them when the workers are done. I guess this means I won’t be putting in new carpet after all. I will post some pictures in a few days of how they look on my photo blog once the guys finish their work. It has been a good day despite a hard evening yesterday. Thankfully, life has a way of turning around at a moment’s notice like that. At least, my life does.
