Meat-heads, Moans, and Meatballs

Sorry, I've been out of commission lately. Working so many hours I haven't the presence of mind to write about experiences in a coherent manner.

I am mystified watching young people at work fall apart before my eyes. August is always the most difficult month of the season to navigate and they are not handling things well. I think it's just too much partying after work with friends.  Then, when morning comes and it's time to go to work they bitch and moan about being too tired.

Too hung-over is more likely the case. Hey, if I can work 8 to 10 hours daily, they can too.  I have (and show) no sympathy for them.

Met repairmen at the restaurant at 7:30 this morning and I just arrived home at 5 tonight. I am tired, but plan to make homemade meatballs - just because I think I need the therapy.  If that makes any sense.

While prep is quick they take about 3 hours to cook, so they will not be for supper tonight. No idea what I will have, but there's always something in the refrigerator, and I'll have plenty of time after making the balls and having a cocktail to figure it out.

Two weeks - three days til Labor Day and the formal end of the season. And yes, I am counting.

And so it goes.


  1. Just what I said to a taxi driver who was complaining on his work load [It's the off season now]. He should have a good nights sleep and let himself get pampered, if needed.

  2. I too am tired of summer and look forward to autumn, despite its melancholia
