I got up this morning and something smelled fishy.
As in a very strong odor of fish was filling my house.
We did not have fish last evening.
Well, not fish that was cooked in the house
or even on the patio.
What we had was salad night.
That's an evening when neither of us feels much like cooking,
it's warm out and no one wants anything heavy.
We each make our own
because we don't always like the same things in it.
Two of those things were crab fakes
and tiny salad shrimp.
I'm not one of those people who plan on having shrimp.
I always like it when I have it,
but it just doesn't pop into my head as what I want.
Not even in a Chinese food platter.
But last night, shrimp minis topped my plate.
We both enjoyed our salads.
Then the man made a comment.
"Something tastes really salty tonight."
before he mentioned it, I had not noticed...
but then I could.
We ate all the shrimp minis.
Crab fakes were put in a zip baggie in the fridge.
The dishes were rinsed and dishwashered.
Nothing this morning should have smelled like fish.
We also put stinky trash into used baggies and then into the trash.
Its a mystery to me...
and I am hoping that it does not mean the the shrimp went bad.
Especially since I have an interview this afternoon at 3:00 PM.
The last thing I need is to be troubled with ominous
intestinal sounds... or worse!
I opened the doors and windows.
Its raining out today and cool.
The ominous odor is fading away... yay!
There is not much to do today but wait for the time to be interviewed.
Everything in the house is done.
The rain halts the need to be outside.
As for the job...
it's working as a bakery clerk in an upscale market in a fancy part of
the Emerald City.
Not exactly a high profile career.
But I'd get to hand out free cookies to the kiddos.
The pay is lousy compared to what I used to make
handing out books and reading to kiddos.
I suppose I could eat cookies for them.
I'm hoping that the fish smell is not some kind of omen.
At least I won't get lost.
Yesterday when they called and I had my "phone" interview...
this is so strange to me...
and I told the man where this place was and asked directions...
He got the leash.
That made the pig bull quite excited.
He drove me to the location.
He pointed out landmarks on the way.
He is determined not to allow me to have one of my
great directional adventures.
It should be smooth sailing today.
All I need to do now is shower an hour before leaving and
remember to give myself enough time to gas up.
Piece of cake!
Do me a favor...
when it gets to be around 3:00
think positive thought for me.
Oh... and have a great day!
