...going down the only road I've ever.... uh, well... you know.
Yup, that's me. The guy who's starring in the sequel to 10 Hours on a Wednesday at the Library. This time, I'm wearing my K-Swiss walking shoes, which are mighty comfy to stand in for that length of time.
No, the library conference was NOT so exciting that
they decided to stretch it into a second week. Instead, I'm here due to a library fund-raising event--yet another in our series of fund-raising events in which we con-scribe our patrons to make things for
us to sell on our behalf. In this case, salads and desserts in a luncheon format.
We basically put out tables at a local church with a
huge kitchen and start a never-ending salad and dessert buffet. Usually
I'm summoned to work the event myself and wind up washing and drying an
awful lot of dishes when I'm not running stuff out to the tables. This
year, though, they moved it to Wednesday instead of its traditional
Thursday date. This means Mrs. B can't woman the library while the rest
of us are at the luncheon, cause she's at her other job on Wednesdays,
which has less flexible hours. So I'm here running the show while
everyone else slings salads.
Am I crying? No. I'd actually much rather be here than
over there being tortured by all the sugar-laden goodies that I can't
have due to my EXTREME!!! low-carb lifestyle. (And on
that note, have you noticed how many of the low-carb food products on
the market have words like EXTREME and/or EDGE in their titles?
Evidently, we're supposed to take from this that not eating quite as
much sugar or empty carbohydrates is the dietary equivalent to bungee
jumping, or something. Okay, so I once did get a nasty carpet
burn trying to fish a soy chip from beneath the couch, but I don't think
it's the same thing.)
So here I be until the luncheon is over. I imagine
they'll bring me a doggie bag of salady goodness, but maybe they'll
refrain for fear of offending my dietary sensibilities.
Dunno how much "liberry" craziness will go on today, but check back. I might have another running tally.
