Working (it)


One of my students broke his wrist a few days ago and is getting surgery right now. It's 8:30 pm and I am in the hospital waiting room...in FRISCO. For those of you who aren't locals, that is about 2 hours from home! We should get out of here around 9:30 or 10:00, then drive to Carbondale to drop him off, then back to Glenwood--it's going to be a long day. I took a little advantage of the time after I dropped him off, went to the yarn store and to a yummy dinner. I ordered an Izze and asked for a wine glass. I also ordered a salad appetizer and the most expensive item on the menu ($22.00, the seafood primavera with shrimp, scallops, crab, artichokes, roasted tomatoes, mushrooms, pine nuts topped with a delectable buttery lemony sauce) because I am charging it to the student's account--I'm not paid by the hour and figured I deserved a nice dinner for working so late!
