Tossed Salad Friday

~~ Overheard two women, apparently in the same book club, talking: “I didn’t read a page of it and I don’t know what it’s about. Do you think I can fake it?”

~~ Overheard: “My brother thinks everyone in the family should bow down to his obnoxious wife. Between you and me, he married her for her money, so he can do all the bowing, thank you very much.”

~~ I regretted saying “How are you?” the moment the words left my lips. “I’m having a real rough day,” he says. “Blah blah ME, blah blah ME, blah blah MY CAR, blah blah ME, blah blah ME, blah blah MY ACCOUNTANT, blah blah ME, blah blah ME, blah blah DIARRHEA, blah blah TWO SHOTS, blah blah ME, blah blah ME, blah blah THE CAT, blah blah ME.” He didn’t come up for air for at least four minutes, but it felt like 20. I’m not being callous (well, not too callous) by turning a deaf ear to him. The last time I saw him, he told me he was having a tough day then, too. So was I after our encounter — I arrived quite late for an appointment after hearing about his dentist, his orthotic shoes, and at least a dozen people I don’t know.

~~ As I was putting my gear away, post-yoga, I stepped back and thought I bumped a person. Of course I said, “I’m sorry; please excuse me,” as I turned around. It wasn’t a person but a yoga cushion sticking out from its usual perch. I looked at the woman next to me, who was laughing. I shrugged and said, “Well, that’s embarrassing.” She stopped laughing as her face reddened and her eyes grew quite wide. “You want to know what’s embarrassing? Bringing your coffee into the parent-teacher conference at your kid’s Catholic school and tripping as you go to greet the teacher. You fling coffee all over the desk and then you yell, “Holly fuckin’ mother of g-d” right before you remember the teacher is a fuckin’ nun. A nun! That’s embarrassing.”

~~ Here’s what happens when matzah ball soup tries to pretend it’s Italian:


~~ tRump’s meeting with Kim abruptly falls apart, and many seem mystified. I keep wondering about the presence of Putin’s Foreign Minister Lavrov in Vietnam at the same time — was that really the reason Donnie was there, and the rest just a distracting farce?

Dasvidaniya. Have a great weekend.
