Felt pretty funky most of the day. Even with OTC Day-Quil. Needed to get out and get some food and give the optometrist my lenses as the frames were in. Should be a pretty quick fix. Thought maybe since I’m taking water pills I should pick up some Gatorade too to help with dehydration.
I was just out of the shower (speaking of which we’re having a pretty nice thunder banger as I type this) and dressed. Was cleaning my spare pair of glasses and the frame snapped in half right on the bridge. I took that as a sign I needed to get my ass over to the eye doctors and get my other pair.
So drove over and noticed I was feeling pretty terrible. Almost disoriented, sort of. My appetite has been a bit off and let’s throw some irregularity in the mix as well. Got my glasses, I was back in the car when the gas sensor dinged at me. Pulled into the Chevron that was up the street from where I was and filled the tank. Thought I’d go in and get something to drink. Got a couple bottles of cold Gatorade, ambled back out to the car and started it up, popped the cap on one of those bottles and took a big ol’ slug. And then proceeded to drain the damned bottle. A sense of well being and just generally feeling good spread slowly throughout my body.
Must have been really dehydrated. I drained the other bottle as I headed up the road.
Decided to go to Buffalo Wild Wings in Rice Village to have a few wings because all of a sudden I was really hungry. *laughs* This was a mistake apparently. I had some Parmesan Garlic and a few Salt and Vinegar. Got a draft Heineken. And some Onion Rings. The P&G were off. Chewy. After the 3rd one I pushed them away. The S&V were okay, but not great. I eventually pushed back from those as well. The O-Rings seemed a bit off too. The beer just wasn’t sitting right. Bartender came over and asked what was up, and I explained the P&G’s were just too… Something. Like they weren’t cooked quite thoroughly enough. She went and talked to the Manager and took them off my bill.
I’m not as much of a regular in there as I used to be. Used to be weekly. Then it was monthly and finally I was semi monthly. They used to know my name in there. My last couple of visits I’ve noticed a steady decline in both the Quality of Service and the food quality falling a bit too. They’ve had just about a complete turnover of staff (including management) since I stopped going in regularly. I think I’m done with the place. Too bad. Nice place to meet up and eat and drink and watch some sports.
You know I bought a **case** of Gatorade on the way home though. *grins*
I’ll need another wings joint before too long…
