Just Jack

      So, you think I don’t get around? 
     I get around even when I’m not trying to get around!
     Like when I’m on an errand run, to the dry cleaners (for Ben who has only two favorite shirts), and the bank (Please, sir, I want some more”), the gas cabal station, the pet store, Target (damn them), and even to visit with Uncle Joe at his Pilate’s studio.
     In fact, it was after a solidly sickening hour with an ever-exuberant 23 year old mat teacher (with limbs like jello and no real estate south of the equator- if you know what I mean), that I stumbled, s-t-u-m-b-l-e-d upon the meter maid that was giving me a parking ticket.
     Happy Days.
     She wouldn’t overlook my lawbreaking. It was egregious. 
     I spat out an epitaph I hope she uses some day, and lost control of my cell (my mind really).
     I quickly took stock of priorities, swept down, scooped up, and was met with salvation. 
     Because, if you’re going to jail in yoga pants, with freshly cleaned men’s shirts, a bag of cat food, and the body of a middle aged ex-goddess, you should first spend a little of that hard-earned 20 dollar bill on a good cup-o-joe and a rueben sandwich.
     Thank God Jack was there to accommodate me…

  • William Kendall - The gas cabal station is all too accurate.

    I’d like a reuben… but on different bread. I’ve never liked rye or pumpernickel.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Hey William. Nice to see you here. As for the bread- it’s pretty much my enemy (Carbs) in all of it’s glorious forms- but a gal’s gotta live once in a while.ReplyCancel

  • Lisa Newlin - I want that cookie with the chocolate star on top! Those are my favorites and no one makes them anymore. Frick!

    And I’ve come across those meter maids giving me a ticket before and they will not negotiate with you. So i take it as an excuse to stay parked there a little longer and go get that cup of coffee. At least your parking is going to be paid for!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - That chocolate star was a handmade dollop of ganache! Creamy fudge. Truth be told- I ate that first! ANd, yes I let the car sit all day and too a taxi home. So there!ReplyCancel

  • Sue - I’ll take a Cup-O-Joe (with cream) and a Reuben (rye or marble rye) to go please, and chocolate truffles on the side. I’m high maintenance like in When Harry Met Sally.ReplyCancel

  • onefunnymotha - That looks delicious.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - It was. I haven’t had a rueben in ages. Thought I’d treat myself after dealing with insane meter maid. Or kill her- it was a choice.ReplyCancel

  • Lorelei - Hi, just figured out how to post here. DUH!
    Nice post, Cheryl, and you made me want chocolate all over again. Darn you!

    But yes. I suggest a nice chocolate treat after that meter maid paid you such injustice. That makes it all worth while, I think. We can kill her later. I can send a vampire or werewolf for you, just say the word. I’m connected, you know?ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Hhahahaah. Actually, I should have you on speed dial. Glad you figured it out and I hope to see you hangin’ in the hood frequently!!!
