Today is one of those days when I have so many thoughts running through my head. A guy that I work with is always asking me when I am going to do another post to my blog. I guess he’s living vicariously through me and my exciting life, yeah right! I tell him I have to have something on my mind, find something amusing or just feel like ranting. So while I was sitting on a table I looked over on the rail at a customer who was watching “the action” on my table and thought as I looked at him, “there’s something to blog about.”
Okay, so as I said above there was a guy watching my poker table. He had a pretty big facial wart on his chin. I know people have warts and maybe they don’t have the insurance to have them removed, I get that, I guess. It was the long black hair that caught my attention as he turned and the light captured it in all its glory, it must have been at least and inch and a half long. My first thought was, “look away” but I couldn’t, I was morbidly fascinated as well as grossed out. “Does he not see the hair, will it bleed if he pulls it out, why not just trim it with scissors,”, these were my thoughts.
I know “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,” but I’m hoping that he and that hair both get on the plane together when it’s time to depart our fine city.
I get in these moods where I take classes either on campus or online. I just finished up this class on “internet publishing” this morning. It had some good information but I didn’t care for the way that the content was written, it was very dry and boring. It really didn’t hold my interest and I’m so thankful that I am through with it.
There is a company in town that I would like to apply to work for. I am doing all my reading about them, seeing what positions they have open, what positions look like I would fit into, how best to market my abilities, what classes I might need to take to help me get in, gearing up my resume. I just feel like I would be a good fit there. If I get an interview I feel like I would do well at it, I usually do well at interviews. They are a company that it is rated one of the top 15 to work for in the country and they are all about “having fun.” I don’t know why but I just have this feeling it will happen. I visualize it happening and I have been getting all kinds of weird signs about this company since I’ve been thinking about it. Once I get back from my Christmas vacation this will be my “top priority.” Wish me luck.
We went over our friends for dinner on Saturday night. Dale and I had so much turkey left over from Thanksgiving that we made up a huge batch of slop for Turkey Pot Pies. It came out really good, so this is what we brought to our friends. Dale and Mike were having way to many cocktails and getting really “stupid.” They thought they were being funny, but they were just being idiots. Donna (Mike’s wife) and I were sitting on the couches and she asked me if I’d seen the show “sister wives.” Of course I had. It’s about the Mormon guy in Utah who is married to three sisters and has about 16 kids.
We were both laughing because we thought, that would be kind of cool. I’d take him one night a week in my room. I have no problem sharing, what a great life that would be. What’s wrong with that!
When I got home Donna and I kept texting each other and I kept saying, “I want to be a sister wife.” I don’t know why but for some reason we found this hysterical.
Well I could write more but I know that posts that get too long can get kind of boring. I guess I’ll go throw some turkey slop in a pie shell and cook it up for dinner. It seems to have gotten thicker over the last couple days. I have a few tiles loose, I guess I could use it for grout.
Until we meet again.
That’s a good post! You made my morning – the part about as that guy with the black hair – hilarious (don’t know why, because now that I’m reading it again isn’t that much funny, but it was when I was reading it the first time).
I hope you’ll get that job, good luck!
Good luck with the new job Sandy…Have fun.
Okay… ya, he NEEDED to PICK THAT HAIR! LOL!! Blech!!
The job possibility sounds interesting! Hope you get it!! Keep me posted!
I’ve seen that Sister Wives show and FYI… they are not sisters. 🙂 I don’t think I could share my man. Just sayin’. 🙂
Gross, that black hair will haunt me for the whole day! I am sure you will miss all those freaks if you get your new job…NOT! I need to hear more about it.
OMG I could just envision that wart with the black hair growing out of it. It was such a vicarious experience. (Insert more sarcasm here…)
“Turkey Slop”. Yummy. Did you apply for a position as menu creator and designer?
Enjoyed the post. Right on Sister.
I have to admit that I thought they were real sisters. My husband would drive my real sisters absolutely crazy. He always jokes around and says the world would be a better place if there were more “Dale’s” in it – I say NOT! 🙂
Enjoyed the post, Sandy. That poor man – gross!! (He obviously doesn’t have a wife!).
Anyway, really do wish you good luck with that job. You’ll have to let us know how you get on.
Good post Sandy, I don’t care what you write I always enjoy reading them. Counting down the the days
16 more. Your sisters and I can’t wait to have you. (yes they are your real sisters)
OMG I’m still laughing! I remember that night. Thought I was gonna pee my pants. Funny what our guys do when they get a bit too “festive”. Mine has been good this month, so not sharing him yet. And the hair, how did you not say something! GROSS!!
I think Sister Wife is a documentary that follows the Hebrew Israelites, an African American community that immigrated to Israel and practices polygamy.
