Neither one of us felt like cooking tonight, so I suggested we go to Chipotle. I browsed the menu online, and the choices looked almost healthy! 🙂
I ordered two crispy tacos with black beans, rice, veggies, and pico de gallo!
It is lame that the Husband and I sit side-by-side? 🙂
After dinner, I got ice cream and satisfied a serious sweet tooth hankering that I’ve been fighting for DAYS!
Dinner gave me flashbacks to college. Back in 2005, I bartended at a Chipotle-like restaurant called Qdoba. I worked there for about a year and had lots of free burritos (pretty sweet if you’re on a college budget).
The bar was very small! I had to serve as the bartender-bouncer-busboy-911 caller in case of fights. :) But it was really fun to work there. (Side note: What the hell is that guy on the end wearing on his head?!)
One of my primary jobs as a bartender was to sing karaoke (yes, really). We had karaoke every Saturday night, and it was my duty to get the crowd motivated. I would do 5 – 6 songs a night… I don’t have a really good singing voice, so it was pretty embarrassing.
There was a homeless guy who came in for $1 beers, and we always sang "Summer Nights" from Grease every single Saturday for months (I was Sandy and he was Danny, obviously). That guy was awesome — I wonder what he’s up to now…
Ah, memories. This actually made quite nostalgic for college (I wen to the University of Pittsburgh!).
Here are my afternoon snacks… I had an orange..
Yogurt and granola…
Around 4 PM, I realized I was straight-up HUNGRY. I always listen to hunger cues and knew another "snack" wasn’t going to cut it, so I had a hummus bagel:
Must have been that AM run! My appetite was off the charts today.
Did you ever tend bar? Did you like it or hate it? I liked: the money, talking to people, and having fun. I did not like: creepy men, cleaning up vomit, breaking up fights, and cigarette smoke.
