A day in the life

1:30 a.m.— I get back from the opera.

1:45-3:00 a.m.— I brush my teeth, blog, watch an episode of The West Wing and go to sleep.

10:45 a.m.—
my dad wakes me up and tells me that the whole family is going to a Mother’s Day brunch at 11. I say I had no idea (which is true) and he says that I can stay home and if I want (which isn’t). I quickly shower and get ready.

11:03 a.m.—
we leave for the restaurant and I realize that my mother is wearing about a gallon of perfume. I congratulate myself for remembering to bring the bottle of Tylenol.

11:15 a.m.— upon arriving at the restaurant in Cornelius, mom says that it is too crowded and complains about the service so we leave and head toward Deli in the Grove.

11:30 a.m.— Deli in the Grove is closed and mom complains more. We head back to Hillsboro and Elmers.

11:50 a.m.— after a very silent and awkward car ride during which my sister Katie and I laughed at the tricked-out Honda Civic that passed us, we arrive at the restaurant and eat and equally awkward brunch. I give her the card that Tiffanie gave me. Thanks Tiff!

12:45-4:30 p.m.— we return home and I read, watch more West Wing and take a short nap.

4:55-6:00 p.m.— I run seven miles to commemorate the seven seasons of West Wing that will come to an end tonight. However, given the heat I quickly regret not wearing sunscreen and am grateful for Vaseline. Stupid fat thighs…

6:05 p.m.— I write this entry.

  • Do you have a personal assistant named Tiffanie that performs meaningless chores that require no thought - SUCH AS GETTING A MOTHER'S DAY CARD FOR YOUR MOM?!?

    Well, at least you were able to take a nap.

  • Glad to know that West Wing has gotten to you about staffing things out. I think it's great. Hang on, Margaret is calling me.
