Spoke with Elda this afternoon. It was...awkward. Curse my inability to make small casual talk with people I don't know, and to form a coherent interview. She's a moderately English-fluent Hispanic woman with two children and a 5-day-old baby. And I learned quite a bit. Must string it all together into a page-long paper tonight. That shouldn't be difficult.
I stopped into Dr. B's office only long enough to get directions and a piece of bread today. She said I could go home and use the time to get my presentation ready if I wanted. I was done at Elda's at 3. I took the chance to go to Curves early and then go home.
Kudos to the Lagrange McDonalds: I came through and bought fries with a $20, since I had no other cash. When I was supposed to get $18.70 back in change, the drive-through guy gave me two 5's and three 1's (and 70¢), equalling $13.70. Went inside to correct the discrepancy. They pulled his drawer to check, apologised for the wait, and gave me another fries, all the while being just as cheerful as if I weren't making extra work for them. "It's not your fault. Jesus made a mistake. We'll get him for it later." All in a cheerful and friendly tone of voice. Thanks, guys.
Pages from Angel informing me that the air conditioning will be installed tomorrow. We'll wind up paying $375 or so to have the AC unit completely replaced, since the fan motor is dead and the compressor is beginning a Shakespearean exit. Not bad, all things considered. And he's going to work from home so it's not even a personal day.
Called Angel to tell him I was going home. And stopping by Curves? Yes. Damn. I almost got away with forgetting. It's not that I don't always feel better after exercising, it's just that...well, I'm lazy.
Also, my book came today. Now I can study. But first, I think I'm going to take Angel over to the mall to get his ear pierced. Later.
