Thanksgiving was really nice but not as many people showed up as we were expecting, so I have a lot of turkey leftover. The side dishes are left over, too, but they are easier to deal with than the big chunks of turkey meat. I can make soup and get rid of most of the vegetables. But there are only so many turkey sandwiches that I can stand before the thought of more turkey just makes me ill.
On today’s sandwich, which I hope will be the last turkey sandwich in a very long time for me, I just put a slice of Swiss cheese and some thin slices of Vidalia onion and a nice spread of mayonnaise on the bread with the sliced turkey. I considered grilling the sandwich so the cheese would melt, but the bread was so fresh and soft that I didn’t want to ruin the bread by grilling it.
Yesterday’s sandwich was totally different. I didn’t use cheese at all, and I put a layer of leftover stuffing on the meat, then I smeared a thin coat of jellied cranberry sauce on the bread instead of mayonnaise. It turned out really tasty, but I have had plenty of turkey to last me a long while.
I got rid of that fucking bitch I was seeing. She was a nut case. I met a really nice girl through my parents, go figure. Mom is always trying to set me up with nice girls and most of the time I decline, but she was at my parents house and I liked her right away. That is unusual for me. Most of the time my mom has no clue as to the type of women I like, but this time she hit it dead on. Makes me wonder about mom. Not that it matters, I will still see the chick because after I spent hours at moms talking to her, it was apparent that she is right up my alley.
I am going to take her out for dinner and dancing. We are going to my favorite seafood restaurant as she told me she loves seafood too, and then to the club. It seems that we have a lot in common, but we still have to see if we are compatible or not. I am particular about a few things when it comes to relationships. I don’t do crazy at all, so if she has crazy tendencies, she is shit out of luck. I will find out soon enough I suppose.
I love going to the movies but those cocksuckers charge too much. It is difficult to take a woman out on a date when that date can break you. The economy is such that even a simple dinner and a movie will cost over a hundred and fifty dollars. That doesn’t include drinks afterwards if you are so inclined. How’s a man supposed to take his lady out if it means not paying a bill from his home to do it. I miss the good old days when things were cheaper. Gas was under two dollars a gallon and a movie was only a couple of bucks. You almost have to take out a loan to do anything now a days.
Ah well, I will persevere. It is time to get creative. If I really like the woman perhaps I will make her dinner and watch a movie here at home with drinks out by the pool. I am not trying to be cheap, but you know how it is. We have to get creative if we want to have a social life. I like entertaining though so it shouldn’t be a problem. I keep a clean house, unlike most bachelor pads, and my decorating has style thanks to a little help from my sister.
