Scattered, Smothered, and Covered

It's like a gas station bathroom that sells waffles.

Here's something you never hear at Waffle House - "You did a nice job cleaning up."
-Jim Gaffigan on David Letterman

Also, I got the job I wanted. Now I have to figure out how I am going to make it without any holidays or vacation time. It's going to be a tough transition, but I think I can make it. I have to remember that part of the reason that I took this position is so that I can improve myself. I have to make it happen.

And something else has happened again. I can't talk about it right now, but this is the third time in a year and it has to work out this time.

I am having surgery tomorrow on my eye. I have what the ophthalmologist called a chalazion in my right eye. It's been there for two months. It comes out (hopefully) on Tuesday.

We and some of our neighbors went on a overnight canoe trip this weekend in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. We made it over some rapids, saw some bald eagles, and ate an awesome meal on a campfire. And we avoided a downpour. We have plans to do it again in the fall, and we hope to eventually canoe or kayak the entire recreational length of the Delaware (not all at once, geez).

UPDATE: Mr. Clio corrected my misquote. It has been fixed. FWIW, I wrote it down correctly but typed it incorrectly. I also blew beer all over the kitchen when Mr. Gaffigan was talking.

I bellylaughed through Gaffigan the other night. He was hilarious.

I believe you've misquoted him, however. I think he compared Waffle House to "a gas station restroom that serves waffles."

But I'm splitting (pubic) hairs on this, yes?

Hey I worked at Waffle House near Baton Rouge. The night shift. Grill cook. If there is a hell, it is that job. People would come in and order steak and eggs, medium both. Then they'd eat half the steak and complain it wasn't cooked to perfection.

That is just one example you don't want to work there. However, at our location the food was always prepared cleanly. No spitting in the food or mispreparing orders or PUTTING PICKLES ON SANDWIHCES THAT THE CUSTOMER ASKED YOU NOT TO PUT ON YOU FUCKS! sorry, got emotional there,...
Anyway the food is good. Next time you order ask for scattered smothere, covered, diced on plate with. That's it.

You'll like it.
