Disappointment Sets In (Again and Again)
Breaking my jaw has had many downsides. Lately I’ve been especially hard hit by realizations that I’m missing out on some of my favorite food events throughout the year. Megan mentioned the State Fair the other day and my immediate reaction was sorrow: no bucket of cookies, deep-fried candy bar, or giant turkey legs for me this year. I think I’ll skip altogether.
Yesterday I received a reminder email that Famous Dave’s is having their annual free food for Dave event tomorrow. No free barbecue for me.
Tonight, while prepping for the upcoming fantasy football season, I was looking over my “to bring” list for the draft party and realized I don’t need money for pizza this year. My vices will have to be shakes, Mt. Dew, and Dr. Pepper.
Only four more weeks. Sigh.
