Lunchtime yesterday: “Hey let’s go to Popeye’s for lunch.”
Four of us drive to the Popeye’s on Three Notch Road, across from Hobby Lobby, not the one in San Souci Plaza on Great Mills Road.
I am the first of four to order. Two-piece spicy dark (leg and thigh), corn on the cob, medium drink, apple pie.
Zero apple pies available. At 11:00 a.m. on a Monday (just before lunch).
Also, no corn on the cob ready. At 11:00 a.m. on a Monday (just before lunch).
Everybody else has ordered, paid for, and received their orders. Still no corn on the cob. I take Cajun rice instead.
My chicken looks like it was raised on growth hormones and tastes awful. Dirty rice may as well be dirt. No dessert to comfort my straight-up ghetto meal.
Twelve years I’ve lived here. Most of the time I get my Popeye’s at the San Souci location, and I have never had a bad meal from that location. First time in twelve years that I’ve had to throw away a Popeye’s meal.
4:00 yesterday: home from work.
5:00-6:00. Postpone, then ultimately blow off P90X (Cardio X).
6:15: Screw it, I’ll ride my bike to Weis Market in St. Mary’s Plaza for PT; I need to get some coffee and stuff.
6:30: Rain clouds moving in; call Uber instead.
7:00, coming out of Weis…the sun is out.
The weather: God’s favorite practical joke on Man for over two thousand years.
International House of Pancakes on Three Notch Road closed it’s doors today. Riding home from work, I saw a big FOR LEASE sign where the IHOP used to advertise their specials. All of the IHOP signage stripped from the building.
Didn’t stop to see if the proprietors left a sign saying “We’re closing for good tonight, thanks for your patronage all these years.”
IHOP is the third restaurant to close in my area since COVID-19 put Maryland on lockdown. One was Nick’s, which made awesome Greek gyros. The other was Captain Pat’s Seafood, which burned down a few months ago.
Raineri run 4 miler sucked this evening. I doubt if I made a twelve minute pace.
MCM 2020is an issue in doubt. That is all.
Song of the Day: Ningen Isu/”Namahage.”
I have been on a death metal kick on YouTube lately, and this sounded pretty good.
The band performs in Japanese, so forget Genius. Here’s a link to an article on the band in Japan Times.
