I went to work today and was promptly sent back home.  I feel better (no, really!  I do!  See me do all the things!), but Big Boss said it's obvious I'm not back up to full steam and she'd rather me rest a day rather than push it and be out for two or three.

She also told me this was a go home and rest directive, not a free pass to go home and half kill myself doing the stuff I'd planned to do yesterday.  She actually said "That's an order."

Damnit.  That kind of talk from one military brat to another really can't be ignored.

She also sent me home with soup.  I haven't gotten around to trying any of them yet, but that fire roasted veggie is very tasty.  I need to remember that when I work on rainy, icky days and don't feel like cooking when I get home.

I swear, the food discount might be the best part of the job (oh, she didn't charge me for the soup, btw.  I was just figuring out what it would cost on a day when I don't look like Barfight Alvin).  I can easily bring home supper for the spousebeast and me for under 8 bucks.  And the portions are so huge that it's usually supper and breakfast (me) or supper and a bite while playing Hearthstone at 3 in the morning (him.  I swear, he has the oddest sleep patterns).  Two people, two(ish?) meals...8 bucks.  Not bad.

Of COURSE I'm torturing myself with food when I can't chew on the right side of my mouth.  Grrrr...

This may be the experience that makes me hate yogurt.

I worked at a restaurant for a few years, and bringing home food not to cook was the best part!

Hope you get to feeling better!

LOL. (Only laughing because, yeah. SO much truth in that one short sentence.)

Hope you feel better soon!

I send get well vibes your way!

One of the things I miss from working around food is the discount. i saved a lot of money in school when i worked for Dining Services for the university of Maryland because i can get lunch for free and a discount on other stuff. When I worked for Starbucks, I could get free tea pack or a pound of coffee as well as free drinks.

That is ONE thing I miss about The Biz, but sometimes at lunches I get the extras.... That is rare sometimes though if the speaker is interesting... I pray for a boring one once in a while...

Feel better soon.
