XXX

Wore my first 2x shirt yesterday! Unbelievable! I am now wearing clothes that have been hanging in my close unworn for years. I can’t tell you how good that feels.

Last night me and the missus went out to celebrate Valentine’s Day at a restaurant here in Salem called the Eola Inn. It was recommended by a coworker.

Our first sign that we should have turned around and gone to another restaurant was the front door. It was a solid door, like a bar. We went in anyway and it didn’t seem too bad at first. The owner sat us at a table in the middle of the room and we placed our order. I noticed that the waitresses all looked pretty rough around the edges (to be nice). The décor, upon closer inspection, was a cross between a double wide and a diner. We ordered some seafood. The waitress came back with our sald after what seemed like hours. They were horrible looking. At first I thought it was the lighting, but sure enough it was brown with withered tomatoes and a small plastic cup of runny blue cheese dressing. Ick! After shoving that aside, we waited a full 50 minutes for the main entrée to come out before giving up and walking out.

By that time it was almost 9:00 so we decided to give up and stopped in at a Safeway grocery store on the way home, picked up a bottle of wine and some cheese and crackers and went home and watched TV.

Happy Valentines’ Day!
