I would like to share a story with my readers this evening. A story about a girl. A girl and her sandwich. So tonight I had a rare treat on my hands, about an hour and a half all to myself and the ability to choose whatever I wanted to eat for dinner. Oh the agony of choice. Chinese? Nah just had it. EJ's? good, organic, but expensive. Maritime? Greasy. Could go to Rockland but thats most likely more greasy nasty stuff, could go home, but then I have to make something. So the logical choice would be *drum roll please* Subway. Its one minute from my house, fairly healthy and quite cheap and also usually pretty quick. Into the parking lot and up the crickety wooden stairs I go, a nice lady leaves the door open for me, and *inhales* mmmmmmmmmm love that fresh baked bread smell. Up to the counter, where a young girl and her father are ordering sandwiches for their whole family. Perfect, just enough time to look at the menu and decide what I...... *looks up*.....Oh dear. The menu! BLAST THAT MENU. More decisions! Alright now, were going for healthy ish right? So as I look at the menu I must evaluate what is OK and what is not. Lets list a few shall we? Meatball? Definitely not an option. Cheesy, saucy, messy, and veggies are hard to place. Steak and cheese? Another no, more melty cheesy goodness and again, hard to place veggies on this one other than onions and peppers. Sweet onion chicken teriyaki? A possibility, could be made more on the healthy side, but have you ever eaten one of those? Messy is an understatement. Sweet lord I can NOT have a breakdown in the middle of a Subway! This can not happen. Its just a damn sandwich! More choices. Turkey? Too healthy. Ham? Got 1/2lb of that in my lunch-meat drawer at home. Veggie? Yeah right THATS gonna happen. I scan a little to the right, about to turn on my tails and make a break for the door, when I look up and there it is. Staring me in the face. How could I have forgotten about you? Chicken Salad of COURSE! OK so yes it has mayo, but I probably would have put mayo on my sandwich anyways, and mixed in with the chicken is less mess. Chicken is nice lean meat after all, thats on the healthy SIDE and still tasty, plus it eliminates the need for cheese, hell ill swap mayo for cheese any day. And I have chosen my sandwich, I did not have to make a run for it after all. I inhale again and step up to the counter as the nice lady smiles and greets me with a "What can I get for you today?". "Ill have a footlong chicken salad on...." BREAD. Crap.

So like, I'm a blogger...... right? Wrong. I know your always wrong when you read my blog lol, sucks huh? Anyways I don't see myself as a blog writer, blog writers have topics to write about and they write on a schedule. Me I write about whatever I want whenever I want, some people like it, some don't, no skin off my back either way. Today I was going to write about the ever popular topic on everyones mind, the *gasp* Government Shutdown, but then as I sat here bringing up some Glee music on youtube, it occurred to me. Who REALLY knows whats going on? Like the real unbiased actual facts on whats happening. Guess what? No one does. I mean yeah sure there are big old bad boys and girls in Washington that know whats really going on, but you think they are gonna tell US? Yeah thats gonna happen just about the time Bugs Bunny replaces Obama in the oval office (not that he wouldn't do a better job, but thats another blog for another day). So we can all speculate all we want, but the truth is, there is no reason for it. No one really knows whats going to happen, or if somethings going to happen, and no matter what happens, no one will be able to prevent whatever it is that does or does not happen. The truth is, I'm damn sick of hearing about it. Call me mean, uncaring whatever you want, I would much rather read about the shocker of last nights American Idol elimination then to read one more article or post about the damn Government and how messed up our president is. Sure hes messed up, I personally would rather chew broken glass then hear him utter one word, but dude give it a freakin rest PLEASE. Don't make me beg any more than that, trust me this fat chick on her knees pleading is not as pretty of a sight as it sounds like it might be. So alright maybe I lied when I started writing this, maybe I AM a blogger. People listen up, this will be the PSA of the day from a silly mom: Stop worry so much about what other people are doing, the Government included, and just live your life. 3/4 of the stories we read are based on propaganda anyways (well okay maybe not 3/4 but be real here). Don't misunderstand me, watch the news, be informed, watch Fox CNN MSNBC ABC whatever news you desire, I know I do, but take everything with a grain of salt, take it for what it is and be aware that things are certainly not always what they seem to be. So anyways, about that American Idol elimination.......
