My persnickety roommate
I really wanted to pick up a pizza from Pizza Hut. But not just any old pizza.
It would be a large, stuffed crust, cheesy pizza scattered with black olives.
And maybe some green peppers.
But hours earlier, I had come up with a cheaper & healthier solution:
a veggie burger w/the works (read: fresh lettuce, banana peppers,
muenster cheese, as well as the usual duo, ketchup & mustard),
pesto pasta, and pickles on the side.
But who wants to go to that effort?
It's Friday evening and I desperately wanted to be lazy
(does that make sense? Being "desperately" lazy? I didn't think so either).
But I was also lonely and bored
I'm still getting the hang of the whole being-by-myself-five-
The best medicine in the world (it ain't pretty) is doing something.
First I made a beeline for my stereo and popped in a CD.
Bob Marley's soulful lyrics soon flooded the space.
No matter what anyone tells ya, if you're lonely, music helps a lot. For reals.
And Marley is the ultimate in summer music.
And when I popped the first few pesto'd pieces into my mouth,
let me tell you, it was all worth it.
The veggie burger was delic as well.
