Before I start my weekly tale, I want to give thanks on this Memorial Day to all service men and women, who gave their lives for this wonderful country.
Jenn introduced me to the Codex Alera novels by Jim Butcher which have utterly consumed me. I have been reading practically nonstop this entire three-day weekend. I read through the night on Friday because I could not, for the life of me, put the book down. I swear it’s like crack!
Today, I knew I would face Jenn’s great furies if I remained in bed reading like a nugget while the sun was still shining. I knew she was getting hungry, so I suggested we go to the bookstore (so I can buy the next two fury books) and get her some food.
Jenn loves to read and Borders calmed her inner food fury from working its craft. However, as soon as we left, I could tell that my time was running short.
Code red, Jenn needed food!
If I didn’t make a decision quickly, I would be in for a world of hurt.
I looked around to assess my options, and I found my target on the corner of Post and Mason.
Pinecrest “The Food Makers” Restaurant
Within minutes we placed our order. Jenn got a veggie sandwich and I went with a bacon avocado burger.
Our food arrived quickly and I was relieved that Jenn approved. Her fury was quelled, and all was well.
Except my burger was just average. It was dry and missing a key ingredient, the avocado. I informed the staff of the missing element and soon had a plate to complement my meal. It helped a bit but still nothing special.
Jenn told me she liked her meal but gave her leftovers to a homeless man on our way back to the apartment. I looked at her with a confused look and she said,
Jenn: “For karma of course.”
Translation, the sandwich did not meet her standards. However, the mission was completed, Jenn’s inner food fury was suppressed for the time being. That alone is a win in my book
To our next battle!
Strength and Honor,
