One of the reasons I drove home late last night was to make it easier for me to have a leisurely morning before my face zapping. And given when I woke up, this was a very good thing, as I was in my usual rush about an hour or two after waking up....

One thing I don't like about the current laser technician who has been treating my face lately, is that she doesn't let the face get cold enough in areas she's about to zap. As a result, I'm feeling much more pain than I'm accustomed to feeling - and it's enough to turn me off to the process of face zapping.
After today's session, I saw one of the other laser technicians I have met in the past - and we had a great conversation until the next client came in. And then it was off to fill up my car, as it was running on the same tank of gas that I used to drive to the North Country and back last night....

When I got back home, I figured I'd rest for a few minutes before getting changed and out the door to see N from our board game nights. Little did I know that I'd get called by Lili, and go to sleep for about an hour. As a result, I ended up getting dressed, getting made up, and getting out the door late - and I ended up at N's about 30 minutes late. But this was more than OK - N was still glad to see me.
N, her husband R, and I talked about her daughter O, and then talked about their family business. Hopefully, they will figure out a solution to their problems, and get the business performing on all cylinders. I won't go into details here, but their choice of current location should have been a good one. But the people who patronize the businesses in that area are not the ideal demographic for a business like theirs.
Soon it was time to leave. I didn't have that much to say, and N had some volunteer work to take care of. So it was off to The Avenue (where I bought a pair of sandals for 70% off), and then to the Alamo Drafthouse, where I saw "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" It's been years since I've seen that film, and it is just as captivating as when it was first released.

Once I got out of the theater, GFJ called, and we were on the phone for our full rides home. As one might expect, knowing me, she was about to pose me a trivia question about former President Ford's Vice President, and how he died. And I mentioned that Nelson Rockefeller "died in the saddle" and was with Megan Marshak when he died. Good thing that I'm not on Jeopardy - I might have choked when called to say: "Who is Megan Marshak?"
