The smell of hotdogs, spicy mustard, and kraut permeated my nostrils as I stepped inside my door tonight. Rosa had fixed one of my favorite meals.
"I even fried some french fries," she told me smiling proudly.
"Yum," was my reply. "I'm starving!"
"How was work?" Rosa asked as we sat eating.
"It was a terribly depressing and rainy evening," I replied.
And it was. Such dreary evenings would usually send me into a tail spin of mediocrity and dullness. I was glad when that last delivery was made and I could head back to the store to get my car.
"Any pill counters tonight?" Rosa then asked of work as she smiled.
"Thankfully, no!" I replied laughing. "I wouldn't want to stand out in the rain for that tonight. It's cold!"
I ended up eating three hotdogs. There goes my diet. Rosa thought I was going to eat a fourth. I was too full, though. Maggie seemed perfectly pleased to get a Hebrew National wiener for herself.
Now? I plan on curling up in my lazy boy lounge chair reading Model Railroaders till bedtime. I am sure Rosa will pick some interesting things to watch on TV. She doesn't like my preferred Public Broadcasting. "They're stuffy and boring," is always what she says of Georgia Public Broadcasting.
