I’m going to apologize in advance just in case this post makes no sense. I’m tired, and sick, and pretty damn loopy.
After my run and cookie consumption I started the day cautiously optimistic that I would keep feeling good.
To eat in class I packed a green pear,
and a 2% Pineapple Siggi’s.
I loved the 2% fat content of this yogurt but the pineapple was pretty weak. There was no pineapple flavor and the pieces of fruit were few and far between. But the yogurt itself was wonderful. I enjoy the original Siggi’s and the 2% variety was a little sweeter and the texture very creamy and less stiff.
Adam was done at the hospital around the same time I finished my classes so I walked home to meet him for a date before work. I’m not even gonna lie – he took me to dinner at my school’s food court and it was the best damn date I’ve ever been on. I love spending time with the husband so much! First we stopped in at Ashker’s for smoothies since we have a Groupon.
I can’t remember my exact selection but I know that it had a few fruits, carrots, and ginger.
It would have been fantastic except that I forgot that I freaking hate ginger. The texture was spot on but it was just way too spicy for me. I could only drink a third or so but the husband happily finished off the rest.
Then we walked back to campus. I work in the basement of a dorm building so Adam clearly couldn’t hang out with me but I’m a total creeper so the simple fact that he was in the same building as me was exciting.
We were both starving (like gnaw your own arm off starving) so we hit up the food court and ended up discovering a new, totally adorable, perfectly priced “asian” kiosk. We split a Vietnamese coffee for 99 cents.
And I got a tasty lobster roll.
It was good!
We are bottomless pits so we got pizza too. $4 for two slices packed with toppings; apparently college food courts are the place to go for a cheap date!
My veggie slice came with banana peppers, roasted red peppers, and black olives.
Tonight was my last shift at work (the calling sessions only last for a month) and I was sad to say goodbye. Of course there are people who are total jerks to tele-fund-raisers but most people were really nice! I had several older alumni sweetly tell me that they loved talking to me. I’ll miss it!
I’m not sure anyone will miss me after tonight though; today’s sickness levels hit their peak mid-shift and I basically hacked up a lung in the corner all evening. By the time I met Adam I could barely talk. The loopiness had set in at that point so it’s possible I also told bad jokes and laughed like a hyena the whole walk home but I can’t really blame that on the sickness.
But it definitely was my sore throat that demanded a strawberry milkshake.
Mmmmn, if I could set up a constant stream of icy beverage down my throat that would be excellent.
I had to stay up to set up my class schedule for next semester (I can register tomorrow morning) but now it’s clearly time for bed. So goodnight!
