So I worked a half of a day shift today and got off work at one in the afternoon.
I hate to not get the hours but it was a beautiful day – so I decided I would walk home from work.
All of you Halifax folks – just picture walking home from Scotia Square to the Halifax Shopping Centre.
I had my reasons.
For one – I wanted to try out a barber on this random unpruned shrubbery that I loosely refer to as “hair”.
The barber was up at the end of Oxford Street – before you get to the Westcliffe Diner.
(And if you haven’t had a clubhouse, cheeseburger, milkshake or onion rings at the Westcliffe you REALLY want to go and give them a try!)
The prices are fantastic as well – and the service is always fast and friendly.
I didn’t go for food today because I had already had a salad and part of the reason I walked was to burn off a few extra calories.
Besides – I needed to save room for the pizza tonight.
I went to the Golden Touch Salon.
The barber did a great job and I was really pleased.
So I walked home and I had just parked myself in front of the computer when the phone rang. Turns out that Pier One had our new couches ready. So I phoned up my stepson Connor – and he and I lugged two full-sized living room couches from Pier One to our home – maybe a half a block away.
My biceps are so bumped right now that I can barely type this blog entry.
I’m sweated down to the bone – so when Belinda got home she decided to order pizza for all three of us.
To hell with the diet. I crave carbs, grease and meat!!!
A Pappa Mario’s donair pizza!
We don’t need no steenking gyms!
