Halloween is over and it's already November 1st. Time flies by when you keep a busy schedule and are having a lot of fun. The first half of my Halloween morning consisted of baking Pumpkin Spice Muffins and on into the afternoon making a mixed trio stir fry consisting of chicken, steak and shrimp with a dash of sea salt, basil and margarita mix added for what Emeril would say "BAM!" for to be a delicious, sweet tasting dinner.
We found our way into Sike's living room where he was watching an Alfred Hitchcock Marathon. The story lines were very interesting. Sike mentioned that he had seen so many of the episodes, many were depressing to him due to the murders in each story. He also mentioned that many of the scenes used in the stories were from the same house, just redecorated to look like they were different. I will have to watch several episodes to see if that is so, though would guess that the producers would have had to keep on a low budget and mostly wanted to appeal to the viewer with the story line more than the background scenery.
After watching about 3 episodes, Drew and Sike both agreed that it was time to go get something to eat. We decided (now don't laugh) to go to the Waffle House. We didn't go to the one closest to town. We decided to go on down to the next little town over to eat. It was about a 15-20 minute ride from where lived and sometimes the service is a lot friendlier and doesn't feel like a rushed atmosphere. When we arrived, it did seem a little packed, but there was still a booth available, so we went on in and had a seat.
The first 5 minutes of sitting down in a restaurant are critical, because your waiter/waitress will come up to you and introduce their selves and then, usually you give a big introduction back. Drew decided he would take charge of this on this certain occasion...I will warn ahead of time, after this I didn't know whether to laugh or smack him up-side the head." Our waitress greets us. Apparently she had seen Drew and I in the establishment before we were to ever been married. She had a very good memory and said "It's been a long time since I've seen you both here!" She had been gone for 2 years and recently came back to work for Waffle House. Drew and I are like "Yeah!" and "Has it really been that long?" It doesn't even seem like that many years had gone by since last seeing her and it's almost like it only happened a few months ago instead of years. Also, if I hadn't mentioned Drew is wearing his Halloween costume, I am in a black, glittery, long sleeved shirt and pants and Sike is having to wear a sling around his arm due to the fact that he had injured hisself at work and had to have surgery about a month or so back for a rotator cuff. Drew replied to the waitress "Yeah, I am suppose to be a Starfleet officer, My wife here is a witch and Sike is the old crippled man"...If I wasn't going to smack him I am pretty sure the waitress was wanting to (laughs).
