Other than a lesson in why we should sit up straight to pay attention properly, why coming late to class is inappropriate and why my professor is pretending to be a professor, I got a lesson tonight in being flexible!
Lydia’s flight was 40 minutes late, which mean we had exactly 58 minutes together before I had to drop her off again. So we didn’t have time for wine, but we did drive to a closer smoothie place! I got the Mangosteen, a tropical fruit from Southeast Asia, combined with strawberries, papays, kiwi and protein powder. It was so delicious!! I can’t even begin to describe the flavor.
- Turkey, Havarti, Cilantro Pesto + Spinach on Ezekiel Muffin
- Plain yogurt with 1/4 cup homemade granola
- Strawberries + Carrots
I got to class with exactly 13 minutes to eat diner. I ate some of the strawberries on the way there and ate the yogurt-granola first, since it was the most perishable, and half of the sandwich. That’s all I had time for!!
I had the rest of the fruit/veggies during our 5 minute break (although he gave me the evil eye for crunching a carrot once he’d started lecturing again) and the rest of the sandwich on my way home! Whew!
The husband was entertaining at our house and chemistry had my nerves on end, so I did something totally spontaneous: I stopped into my favorite wine bar that’s right on my way home for a 2 oz glass!! Turns out they had a Sinatra live band playing. I sat at the bar and people-watched and listened while I sipped. I ended up talking to this older Italian man who was here on business and who barely spoke English all about Italy, Parmesan cheese and the Slow Food Movement. I felt like I was in the movies
But it’s good to be home 🙂 Off to bed!
