Weekend Update


The weekend kicked off with lunch on Friday with Q and CyberD. We used to go to a hamburger place that we all liked, but Q refuses to go there anymore since they changed their uniforms away from Bikini Tues/Thurs and School Girl Wed. Our new place is similar to the old place, but the uniforms aren't quite as good and it's a little more expensive. I forgot the rule of going to eat with the guys which is to be the first in line to be seated. That meant that I was sitting across from the other two in the booth. I with a view of the window. Them with a view of all the passing waitresses. We had a cute waitress and quickly established a good repartee with her, at least until she brought us our drinks. As she approached the table CyberD shouted at her for seemingly no reason, "I'm really not a prick!!!". Q, the waitress, and I were stunned. There was a moment of awkwardness and then she said, "Okay". Later she caught Q staring when she was stretching out her back and busted him on it. We had some other weird conversation with her about Q working a corner in some stilettos and how our waitress spends 30 hours a week partying.

Saturday brought my weekly coaching gig. The girls' soccer team played a game that was the opposite of the game they played the week prior. This time we had a terrible first half and a spectacular second half. We were losing 6-1 at half time and I let the girls get their drinks and their snacks then I pulled them away from their parents and gave them a talking to. This made my wife very nervous as she could tell that I was more than a little agitated by the lack of effort I had seen. Anyway, I told the girls not to repeat what I told them otherwise their mothers would be eaten by rats at night. It really had an impact. The girls came back strong and won the game 8-7. My daughter got four goals and has been in "the zone" the last three games or so. One game left this weekend with a chance to finish with a winning record. We're 5-4 at the moment.

I had hoped to have a special guest by the house Saturday evening, but plans were changed a couple of times and eventually I was stood up. No big deal. Sure we'd cleaned up the house all night, shampooed the carpets, washed the children, grilled salmon, potatos, zucchini with a spicy chipotle/tomato sauce, and made homemade chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Like I said, no big deal. I wasn't upset but in a slight moment of disappointment and frustration I grabbed all the food, threw it on the newly cleaned floor, then jumped up and down on it. Then I went out into the street and yelled at all of my neighbors for thinking they are so superior.

I finished the weekend on a high as Q and I did fairly well at the track on Sunday. We won early and then again on the last race. In between winning we ate, watched the draft and laughed a lot. We both left with a little extra money in our pockets. When we returned to my house I gave a hasty excuse that it was best if he didn't come in because we hadn't cleaned up and that my neighbors were assholes.

Hasty excuse? You told me that you were done with me, and it was best that I leave before your wife got home...

Stood up.

Dags, I'm not coming till JUNE 16, not April.

And Scooter, I bet you do.

Q - This is the internet Q. I don't have a wife on the internet or at the restaraunt with the cute waitresses. Please remember that.

Fringes - It was pretty awesome. I almost brought some over that night, but I was exhausted.

Dagromm said...

Gyuss - I am in awe of your restraint. You must be tantric like Sting.

cyber D said...

I didn't want to admit it at the time but it's my turets acting up.

LIT said...

Dags, have you consulted the phrenologist about your erratic mood swings? They don't seem consistent with your basic Pisces personality.

Dagromm said...

CyberD - I thought it was your Zima acting up.

lit - I'm not worried about my mood swings. I find them charming.

cyber D said...

Zima!?! Pa-Lease! You insult my man-hood, sir. Be careful I don't walk across town and bitch slap you right before I drive a golf ball 400 yards!

Q said...

Dagromm, I believe he was drinking a Bartles and Jaymes wine cooler. Fuzzy navel to be exact...

cyber D said...

Now you're just thinking of the waitress again, Q.

Q said...

Always...

heather said...

I told Q if he were a girl I'd sew him a dress, and he told me that dresses aren't only limited to women. I should have known he'd want me to sew him a hooker dress to match his heels when working the corner.

Dagromm said...

AMP - I would suggest something that showed off his cleavage.

Q said...

Yeah definitely low cut...
