Tossed Salad Friday

~~Approximately 70% of the people I know have giddily informed me over the past week that Ben & Jerry’s now has vegan frozen desserts. While that’s great for vegans and the lactose intolerant, I am currently giving the cold shoulder to anything from Vermont.

~~ I’ve officially retired from the practice of law in the eyes of the state. Though I haven’t practiced in more than two years, it felt really strange to click on the “Retired” box on the attorney registration form and print out the receipt that confirmed same. Not strange-bad, just strange-odd.

~~ Legit question here:

~~ The chance encounter with someone I knew decades ago was perplexing. I smiled and said hello as did she. Then she said, “I almost didn’t recognize you! What did you lose, about 150 pounds?” No… who did she think I was? “You’re not Amanda?” No. “Oh, well, then bye!” I always pitied her clients, as I thought she didn’t give a rip about them. But maybe she just couldn’t tell who was who?

~~ He answered my inquiry as to how he was with, “Borderline homicidal. The snowplow dinged my car, I need two teeth pulled, and my biggest client decided to move to South Carolina right after I expanded my staff. How are you?” All things considered, I had no qualms about answering, “Fine.” Once we concluded the email exchange, I wondered about the word “homicidal.” Did he have a particular victim in mind or was he just on the verge of inflicting harm on anybody he encountered?

~~ Pitchers and catchers report to Mets’ camp on the 17th.
I’ll be doing a happy dance that day, because no matter how cold, bleak, and dreary my world is, baseball represents all that is happy and golden. (Until of course, the team breaks my heart. But that rarely happens in February.)

Have a great weekend!
LET’S GO RANGERS!
