The Korean couple had only had a yogurt for breakfast. So we soon ended up at the local KFC.
It was packed! There were seven lines of 10 people deep. We finally found a table and got a coffee and a coke.
When I went up to order, the KFC cashier pulled out a picture menu. They do this when they see a non-Chinese person. I'm supposed to point to the items I want. Since I was only ordering coffee and a coke, I don't need no pictures. I can do this myself. I smiled at her, pulled up my training paints, ignored the baby pictures and ordered like a big boy. She raised her eyebrows slightly and then asked me a question. She was testing me. Yeah, I knew what she was doing. So I faked it. I answered "yes" and calculated that whatever the question was, a "yes" couldn't hurt me much in an eating establishment. (I thought she asked if I wanted to eat in but she asked if I wanted to eat out. How could I get this wrong?) She put the coffee and coke in a paper bag, took my money, and I returned to the table to join our friends.
So we spent the entire day visiting various eating places and laughing a lot. We talked of the weather, our families, and even our hobbies. I need to do this for the next two months.
The guy on the bike should have rented a truck but instead he's strapped these long planks on either side of his bicycle seat. It looks like he'll spear someone coming in the opposite direction.
I saw one guy pushing his friend in a wheelchair down the middle of the road and against traffic. Go figure. No wonder the poor guy is in a wheelchair. His buddy has been avoiding the sidewalks!
Oh, yeah, forgot to mention. Got a new doo. Went to the same place as Ruth and got a haircut for $2. Includes the cut, a before and after shampoo wash, and blow dry styling. Whoa dude.
When I went to the beauty shop the the hair stylist said it would cost me $75. And that was just for the estimate! - Phyllis Diller
