Totally Random

Last night I was out for dinner with my BFF and Joshua. Plain old run 'o the mill kind of place, like 'family diner'. And there's this man in the next booth. I can't place him but he looks familiar. Tall, lean, well-dressed and handsome. With a woman/wife and two young kids too, btw.

Then I noticed the ring on his right hand ring finger. This thing is HUGE and gold. I mean H.U.G.E.

I think... "That looks like a Super Bowl ring!" But it can't possibly be because, ring or not, I wouldn't recognize a football player if my life depended on it!

It took me a while of politely trying not to look as I attempted to figure out the puzzle of the familiar, handsome looking man and his oh so noticable ring, but I finally did.

I had just had dinner next to the Great Tommy Hearns!

I stopped staring after I figured it out. One woman did tear her paper placemat and asked for an autograph when he went to the cashier. I don't know if she got it or not, but I thought it was terribly tacky. I was just happy to know that I was in the presence of historic greatness.

So not only did I get to spend time with my BFF and my son, but I was mere feet from an international legend. Totally made my night!

I am attributing this bit to one of my favorite Tupperware tools, the Quick Chef.


If you don't have one yet I'm not sure what you're waiting for. Go get one.

I had a hankering for egg salad. It happens about once every two years and I guess it was just that time, because two hard boiled eggs were in the fridge calling my name.

Out came the Quick Chef. In went two eggs (sans shells), a little Hellman's mayo, fresh cracked peppercorns, and a dollop of stone ground mustard. Stir about 6 times and VOILA! I ate it with a couple of celery ribs. Perfect lunch.

btw: Quick Chefs make the fastest tuna/salmon salad, fresh salsa/pico, dessert stuff, guacamole, crumbled taco meat, graham cracker crusts, etc, and I almost never chop up an onion by hand anymore. Plop it in and spin. Done. (I don't sell Tupperware, but I do know someone who does.)

My sister Karen and nephew Hunter are here from Gaithersburg, MD. I'm having dinner with them, and Julie and her family tonight.

Tomorrow the sisters go shopping. That should be fun.
