Disappointed Vicariously

Follow-up to my post about Living Vicariously. Here is my friend's telling of what happened when he went for his blind date with The Entertainer's mom after poker.

"Nothing much happened. We talked. The whole house was awake. The Entertainer was there too. From what I can tell nobody in the house ever sleeps. The Mom was missing four lower front teeth and smelled of cigarettes and bourbon. The Entertainer has blond hair, most likely colored, but The Mom had very black hair and a style that closely resembles Elvis in the 50's. I stayed 45 minutes and got home. That was the evening."

Sometimes reality falls short of the promise. The next time will be different.

The Renovation
The box for the final cabinet arrived. We won't have shelves or doors for it until next week, but at least Doug was able to install the box, the molding and under cabinet lighting. He also hooked up the range, so we are literally cooking with gas.

Tomorrow: No more daily renovation updates. It's going to be a few days before the rest of the cabinet and the last drawers arrive. Doug will be back next week when he has all the stuff he needs to finish up. In the meantime, we have a perfectly functional kitchen.

The Day
