I really want to make an entry...I just can't. I don't know why.
As you may or may not know, I am sort of famous in these parts for my turkey gobble. I sound just like a turkey. People actually come to the restaurant and bring their out of town relatives, guests, friends in to hear my turkey gobble. I get a request for it at least once a week.
One time, a few years ago, I was searching for health insurance and I was talking to this guy at a firm in Chicago and he said mid conversation, "You know, I just have to ask you, are you the Whisper in Michigan that does the turkey gobble because a colleague of mine came back from a business trip a few months ago and could talk about nothing but a bartender named Whisper that did an excellent turkey gobble."
That was hilarious to me.
Another time...I used to answer any pay phone that was ringing with a turkey gobble. I picked up a ringing phone once and did it and I heard someone ask increduously, "Whisper?"
That too was hilarious.
I have an exciting few weeks ahead of me. Three weeks from this time I will be coming home from dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in Paris. I will be wine tipsy, totally euphoric to be with my love, and quite a bit jet lagged.
In the meantime. My brother is coming home on Tuesday. I cannot even begin to tell you what a relief this is to me.
And I have many preparations, as usual, for my departure.
Including finding some money to pay for my departure. But that will come, somehow.
Money is stupid.
I hate money and I wish it would die.
One of the little machines in the lobby of our restaurant has these "happy bunny" stickers in them. They are the funniest things I have ever seen and I have now wasted ten precious dollars getting all of them. My favorite one? The one that says, "It's okay with me if you want to drop dead." I am considering sticking it to my apron, right next to the one that says, "Plotting my revenge is fun." And, "You are ugly and that is sad."
HA! I kind of wrote an entry!
