After the Casino night, we had a busy day at the Symposium. On less than 4 hours sleep. Stupid, huh? Needless to say, ThatManILove those of us who had imbibed alcohol the night before had a sinking spell around 11 a.m. - and then again, around 2:30 p.m. Those of us who didn’t drink (namely me) somehow carried on without cratering at all.
The social hour finished around 6 p.m., and we were trying to decide where to eat, and with whom. ThatManILove and I went up to the room to change. He ended up laying down for a minute, and he immediately went to sleep. My co-workers were going to make a plan, and call us shortly. After 20 minutes passed, and no call had been received, I decided to put on jeans and boots and head back down and see if I could get all my fish to swim the same way.
Turned out, about 25 of us wanted to go with each other...and someone decided they were going to eat...(can you guess?) at the Casino. I knew a few of my customers were not going to want to drive that far, so I made other plans. While I called the Bonefish Grill to make reservations for 10, I had one of my coworkers call ThatManILove to tell him to come on down. We couldn’t get him to answer.
My friends Lonnie and Dawn decided to go up to their room to change, while I was still on the phone with Bonefish Grill and trying to keep all my people together. I quickly gave Dawn my room key, and asked her to go by our room and tell ThatManILove to come down.
He came down forthwith, and looked at me with one of those looks of love - you know, girls, the dark ominous ones? That portend no good will?
Yeah. ThatManILove didn’t answer his phone, but he did try to answer the door when Dawn knocked. Just as she was coming in the room, to wake him up he was heading to the door - not quite dressed. I’m not sure who was more surprised, ThatManILove or Dawn!
I heard lots of “Janie told me to” (from Dawn) and “Janie, I can’t believe you did that” (from ThatManILove). We laughed a lot heading to the Bonefish Grill!
It’s never boring around here!
