- Never, ever ask for anything more complicated!
- Be careful what you ask for!
- Complications aren't planned...they just happen.
The very next day, we got complicated alright. In spades. We ran for 8 hours straight.
It was so busy that I'm still not sure she got what she asked for, or if seeing what complicated really looked like at night, it was all too much, or worse, not enough.
Last night, we took or made what seemed to be a thousand phone calls over a 5 hour period and around 10 PM, we split up to go to our respective homes. I was starving and knew there wasn't anything I wanted to eat at home. Given the late hour, most of the grocers and restaurants were closed, too. It was a toss up then...fast food or starve. In torrential rain (truly coming down in buckets), I made the decision to pick up some chili from Wendy's. It's not a bad selection diet-wise. It's full of protein and fiber and is what's considered to be a low glycemic selection. To balance that relatively healthy choice out, I do what I very seldom do and ordered a medium Coke. I don't like diet drinks, but I do love fountain Coca Cola. After all that time sitting in an office talking, I was thirsty. When they handed me a "medium" sized coke, I was surprised. It was enormous!
Their medium sized cup holds an impressive 34 ounces. Or 1 liter. I know this because after I consumed about 25 percent of what was in that cup, I dumped the remainder out and measured. This is ridiculous! I know people want to get a bargain for their money, but in the grand scheme of things, is this a bargain? It isn't if you make this a habit and find yourself buying bigger clothes to accommodate your expanding waist line.
Next time, I'll ask for the child size cup.
TGIF! I hope my orientee didn't ask for more complications for tonight.
