Since today is Halloween, we have a bunch of kids coming into our building today to snag some free candy and other treats from the various departments around us. During lunch, one of the kids in front of me on the line wanted the sandwich girl to make her a “roast beast (hehe yeah, too cute) and cheese” sandwich. While we were all laughing at the cuteness of that request, I couldn’t help being just a wee bit jealous of that kid. Don’t you wish sometimes that you were still a kid with the whole world before you again? I must have been thinking out loud because I thought to myself, “Ahh, what I would give to be that age again,” and the gentleman next to me patted me on my back and simply said, “Don’t we all.”
So this weekend, I went to a house warming party a couple of friends threw for their one year anniversary of the house closing and it was very pleasant. There were a TON of people there and I only knew about three of them, the married couple and another friend, Carol. This was a little awkward for me because well, I get very uncomfortable around large groups of people where I do not know most of them. I guess you can call it a fear of large groups of people, so I generally try not to put myself in those situations. It’s not like I freak out or anything, I just get pretty uncomfortable in those intimate settings where I know just a couple and am just too shy to force myself to meet others out of the blue. What made it worse was that almost everyone there was married so it made it doubly tough to mingle around just to chit chat with people. Eh well… Anyway, we (Nicky & Kevin [married couple] & Carol) all go pretty far back to our college days so it was really good seeing everyone, especially Carol (such a gorgeous woman who I have had a major thing for years… /swoons) who I found out was single. However, I was sad to hear she’s moving down to DC pretty soon but we got to talk and catch up on everything which is always a great thing nonetheless. Unfortunately, I had to cut out of the get together earlier than expected because of a family thing that came up while I was there. Nothing serious, but I did have to drive up to my parent’s place right after I left.
One cool thing I also did this weekend was learn how to make a better flan from the ex. I finally got her to break down and show me how to make one which I did and I hear it came out fabulously. 🙂 Hoo yah!!
Also, let it be known that today I am taking it very easy with the candy so that I can avoid another visit to the doctor’s office soon like I had to do last year.
Hope your Halloween day is enjoyable!
