Fat And Sassy
Sexy Lady made it back to Kansas City on Tuesday night. She arrived home safely through all the ice and adverse weather conditions.
Before dashing home with the little Daphne, we decided to zoom out for a quick dinner. I had to sneak out and meet her in the driveway so that Daph wouldn't get out-of-control excited seeing the Sexy Lady.
After a tough and stressful day with the Feds, my preference was comfort food. That led to "Streetcar Named Desire" in Crown Center. One can never go wrong with a BLT from SND, a side of mayonnaise and a Long Island Tea concocted by bartender Duane. A mighty great meal. Plus, with two huge tomato slices, lettuce and wheat bread, I know it is super healthy.
We ran into our friend Jenna while in Crown Center. Sexy Lady hadn't seen her in quite some time and asked what was new. Her reply, "Just getting fat and sassy!" I jumped in and pointed out that only half of the statement was something new. And that half wasn't even true!!
After Streetcar, the SL insisted we have dessert and that it was my pick. Why? Because this was Cowboy's day that he popped onto the earth. You should thank my mom for that. It's true. I'm older.
My selection ... bread pudding at Classic Cup on The Plaza. It was mighty fine. And it arrived on an orange plate! I was in heaven.
We came to my home to great Daph and Gabby and then opened a few gifts. Daph gave me a tremendous orange bag with wheels to pull files and a laptop. It is brilliant! SAK and fam sent a little gray kitty ornament and included a sentiment about my Eponine. Very nice. While VMc, RMc and family sent a super-fantastic OSU shirt. There is nothing better. Several cards and e-mails too, including the annual ones from the OSU Foundation, Hallmark and Southwest Airlines.
Here's to another year of getting fat and sassy. However, I'm declaring now that a SERIOUS DIET is beginning Jan. 1.
