Just slooow down….

I’m on a vacation. Away from my “usual” weekly ways — to partake into… different surroundings. Also to get some things done that need to be gotten done.

Nevertheless, I wanted to share a story from today.

I am at a restaurant with my family for lunch. We are sitting outside and looking at the menu when a man comes over and introduces himself as the owner of this one and several other small restaurants. He sees me and looks at my shirt I love to wear….


He loved it! Told me that HE HAD BRAIN SURGERY TOO! We talked about each of our surgeries and found out his was three years ago (mine is a bit over a year and a half ago). Each of our surgeries were on the left-frontal lobe, too! Pretty cool….

It is “Ponedeljak” for us all again… (Bosnian)

What is happening on Moon-Day?

Anyone knowing the answer to this elementary question?

Yep, it is time to write an online journal about the visit of the “thinking brain” person. That’s a good definition/answer. That will somehow work.

O-tay. Started the visit with the Psych-lady and this is one of those “lengthily drawn-out discussions” of where to eat at.

Psych-Lady: “Where you want to go?”
I respond: “I don’t care, where do you want to go?”
Psych-Lady: “Well, we are not going to do any deadly walking down the street in the heat.”
I respond: “Uh, okay. You’re driving and it’s (obviously) your choice. WHERE ARE WE GOING?”

We go outside into the heat and into her vehicle. A quick right-turn and then “skidding” through a swift “U-ee turn”. Errrrrrrrrrrr…….. The wheels straighten out and swiftly move forward again toward the usual…. Special Grocery Store Place. (Trust Me. I have just relaxed about this so-called “brain” of mine and the non-remembrance of the Name Of Things that it has selected to do.)

BRAIN: “Oh, that’s worth filing away to remember. That one… eh, just toss that one out. Someone else’s brain can just try and catch it.”

Ok. We get to our normal Blah-Blah location. I have chosen a collection of foods that I haven’t eaten previously, just to be a precarious living individual. Now, boys and girls, we shall enjoy the descriptions to each of the foods.

Tuna with Cranberries – This is made of: Canola Mayonnaise. Water (that’s a good one). Da da da…. Egg Yolks. Honey. SEA SALT (That REALLY good one, trust me). Lemon Juice. Yellow Onions. Sugar. Salt. Wait…. It has Salt? It already said “Sea Salt” and now it says “Salt”?? Wha??
Buffalo Chicken SaladChicken. Chicken Breast (Ahhh… okay). Buffalo Chicken Salad Dressing. (A buffalo-type chicken getting dressed as a salad?), Ranch Dressing (So, naked things getting dressed?), Frank’s Hot Sauce (Yo, Frank, can I have some?), Worcestershire Sauce (not even trying to say that one as fast as I can), wada-wada…. and a few more vegetables.


Black Secret Squirrel Cold Brew Coffee – Finally! Finnaly! I found a drink that I wouldn’t have to worry about being incorrectly drinking. I finally remembered to read a drink before drinking! This time I DON’T HAVE TO SHAKE IT!

AAAAaaaaaarrrggggg!!!!! It didn’t taste too bad. Did this brain of mine thinks it was good enough to use space within itself to correctly remember and describe the details of its flavor? No. But, it wasn’t bad.

Skidded the vehicle around and made it back to the office building when we finished eating and speaking.

Okay. I’m warning right now:
This Psych-Lady is telling me that she is “refusing” to see me next week. Why? She has “Made Up Better Things To Do.” So, knock this off the list of things to blog about next week. Which is fine… I had plans to advise her that I could not connect too, but she beat me to it.

“Did you write in your blog tonight?”

Phew… Today was a busy day. Was it a lucky day with it being busy?

What was that first thing I did today? Uh… um… Oh, yeah. Lucky enough to have that good friend drive the both of us to pick up fancy and expensive drinks from that place with the drive thru (Heck no! That is not how we order drinks! We go inside! ). You know, Starbucks.

The usual family meal of eating was an outstanding lunch thoroughly enjoyed together. Oh, the dish that is worth the effort of eating is the one enjoyed with cheese and noodles. You know, Homemade Mac & Cheese. Mmmm….

Last thing enjoyed on this nice day was the lucky opportunity to watch a baseball game that my good friend’s young male descendant is on the team. This was enjoyable by all.  The weather in the sky was enjoyable, too.

This was a good day. I was told that I only needed to “wait” one more day. Then there will be the day of the beginning of something good? We will have to wait…

It’s only Wed-nes-day… and I am SUFFERING?

I cannot believe this goes on for a SECOND TIME this week! This is why I feel I am in a questionable suffering position…? My “sweet” cousin comes to me today and asks in her pleasant voice…

“Can we go and eat at that WHOLE FOODS place you had commented about on your ‘lovely blog’ on Monday? If you could go with me, I will be so kind enough to drive the two of us over there because you lag a drivers license.”

(I’m sure this is the exact quote she gave me)

What? How did this get this way? How did I get to be the only “direction giving” one? …. well, I don’t know what else I would be in this situation. I became the “purchase my own food” and “eat my own food”. Eh.. I guess I could do those too. 🙂

Wait… Wait… Wait… This is ALL MY FAULT! I was just informed that someone had actually taken time to read this blog? That’s insane…

ok ok ok… What did I eat today…?

Well… I am found to be eating (in an image that I took of my food, so that I would remember it) a large bowl of some kind of flavored Mac & Cheese. Had some green… decoration on the top that was edible. A bit on the cold side, so I just packed it up and brought it home.

NEXT…. 6 Sushi Pieces. That was tasty. Kinda just popped those into the mouth… one-after-another. It was an interesting flavor once bitten into. Not bad at all. —– Oh, this is funny. I was seeing this green piece of “something” sitting in the corner of this plate.

Thinking… “Hmmm.. Let me see what that tastes like.”

Take a bite and find out it is actually a plastic piece for decoration? Haha…

Ah, Dessert…  Toasted Almond Cream Cake. Mmmmm…. That was tasty. Best of the three foods is dessert. Haha…

Now… The Drink! “Califia Farms Mocah Mexica Cold Brew Coffee with Almond Milk“. That is good stuff. Not “cow’s milk” which is good since I’m lactose intolerant.

Nevertheless, today was a good day. 🙂
