Lunch time once again found me sitting at Roger’s Barbecue alone. I ate two barbecue sandwiches and a bag of potato chips along with a side of potato salad. I had called my mother earlier with a phobia that I was out of money on my tab. I have this extreme fear of getting caught in an awkward situation and I am broke after paying the workers for my kitchen floor and for Maggie’s fence.
“Surely, you haven’t eaten up a hundred dollars this shortly,” My mother said.
“No, I am just worried that they won’t recognize me or won’t put it on my tab,” I replied.
“Are you taking your medications?” My mother asked sounding perplexed.
“You go over there and eat some lunch. You have plenty of money on your tab.”
“Okay,” I said timidly as I hung up and got in my car and drove the 5 minutes to the restaurant.
When I arrived home, Charlie’s wife had called me. She couldn’t get on the internet.
“You have Knology, right?” I asked.
“Yes,” She said. “I get a 404 error, page not found, when I open internet explorer.”
“I’ll be right over.”
I drove over which was back across the river and rebooted her cable modem and got her back on the internet.
“Come on,” Janice said. “Let’s go fill up your car for helping me.”
This was much needed as my car was almost out of gas and I am broke until next month.
“Thank you so much,” I said as Janice stepped out of my car to swipe her debit card at the gas pump.
I then took Janice home and then drove over to my new house just to look at and admire things. Just another boring day in my life; I really didn’t have anything else to write about and I just wanted to write. I hope you don’t mind.
