Cold Pub

I was sick all day Tuesday. Not the 'I've got a cold' or 'my stomach's upset' kind of sick, but a weird kind of sick. It started with a case of the 'vapors'. Okay, that's kind of a joke. If you've ever seen any movies from the forties or early fifties, you may remember that when the 'society matrons' called the doctor, he always told them they had the 'vapors' instead of telling them they had 'gas'. But I definitely had it. After brushing my teeth, I went in to prepare my morning half-cup of coffee. I had barely poured the milk into the cup, when I felt really nauseous. I dashed in and flung myself upon the bed, where I was attacked by a case of the dry heaves. I no sooner finished with that then the chills arrived and I was freezing. A short while after that started, my hips (both of them) became quite painful. This went on all day. I finally got the idea to take a couple of Advil for the hip pain and it seemed to work after a while. By midnight, the dry heaves had stopped (I finally threw up), the chills were gone and the hip pain was gone and I managed to have my usual quirky night of sleep. I have no idea what happened to me or why. It was very strange.

A new place named the Village Pub opened on the Drive, Robb and I decided to give it a try on Friday night. We parked in the Alibi parking lot across the street, and as soon as we got out of the car, we could hear the thumping of the music. We could only imagine how loud it must be inside the place. We got there around midnight and the place was packed and we were right about the loudness of the music. There was no way you could hold a conversation. It was a very mixed crowd, ranging in age from what seemed like late teens to our age and beyond, and both men and women, though I don't think there were any straight people there. Robb got us both a margarita. The drinks were large but not that good. After about an hour we were so bored, we left half our drinks and went home. Does this mean we're getting old or was the Village Pub just boring? Maybe we'll go to the Manor next time. We had a pretty good time there last time we went out.

Dinner at Bona's Italian.  Robb had the Eggplant Rollatini and I had the Jumbo Shrimp and Scallop Scampi.  Both were good although the Shrimp/Scallop dish had a taste with which I was not familiar and took a few minutes to get used to. 

Dumb Law of the Week: In Massachusetts, it is illegal to snore unless all bedroom windows are closed and securely locked

À la prochaine, mes amis.

Sorry you didn't feel well. A flash flu? Hope it doesn't come back. And I hate places where you can't even talk to each other.
