Friday Night Boo-boos

Anyone who knows me would tell you that I do not really like going out. That is common knowledge even for mere acquaintances, really. I like to think that I have outgrown that. As with most people and things though, I have to admit that I have a changed a bit. I don't know whom to attribute that change more - my husband or my work environment. One thing I have to say, both have influenced a whole lot. People who knew me in university may not recognize me for what I am now. Anyway, that's another story for another post.

So it's Friday night and I am out with my husband. After work, I met him at this steak house which serves good steak for the price. Seriously, you wouldn't think that you could get steak for their prices. I didn't really have dinner so we had a big meal. What I didn't factor in was the fact that I didn't have much cash on me - same thing with Jerry. Lucky for us, we had enough to cover the meal. Everything would have been fine if we hadn't gone to this little bar that he really likes. Actually, I like it too. It's small and cozy and not crowded. In fact, there is hardly anybody in here right now.

The people are really nice and accommodating - they actually get Jerry's humor which, if you've met him even once, you would know is very sarcastic. Then we found out that they don't accept credit cards. I have about 200 pesos on me. That is just enough to cover the calamares that Jerry ordered. I was not worried at first as I know that there is an ATM right next door so I asked Jerry to go over and take some money out. Problem: the ATM is shut down. So where is Jerry now? Walking over to Eastwood to get money out.

It's kind of funny, if you think about it. The guys here are nice enough not to make fun of us or anything like that. I just feel so stupid not taking more money out before I left Eastwood. It's good that I was able to connect to a wireless ISP - I don't know who owns it. Am I stealing? Hmmm... I am a bit tipsy I guess that's why this post is so incoherent. Shame on me. I am allowed some Friday boo-boos aren't I?

Another thing...I decided to take a cab from Eastwood because I didn't feel like walking to Yankee Dandy lugging the laptop around at 10 in the evening. It turns out that all the u-turns were closed - BF you suck for this one! The nearest turn was as IPI and the traffic was just horrendous! So I got off across the street from the place and I had to play "patintero" with the cars. It was exhilarating - haha!

All 's well that ends well - at least I am assuming that it will end well. Jerry's not here yet. I hope he is sober enough to cross the street safely.
