Inexplicable Subway Outfit

2009-08-27_211956

I’m going to go out on a limb here, and guess that this person is often extremely lonely.

You guys – Mr. Mock and I took Mini-Mock out for dinner tonight, and we went to an Italian place where they serve the most delicious Shrimp Scampi, which is basically like a small bowl of shrimp SMOTHERED in garlic and lemon sauce, and every time I order it I enjoy the crap out of it…until I get home.  You would not believe the amount of garlic that I actually consume when I eat this particular shrimp scampi.  I mean, there are actual CHUNKS of garlic in there, that I end up eating whole.  And now that I’m home, I reek so much that I can hardly stand to be around myself.  Mr. Mock is sitting across the room because I am that unbearable to be around.  At least HE can escape.  I am sort of stuck with myself.

And the thing is, I’ll still reek tomorrow – even after I’ve showered.  It takes a few days for this much garlic to work itself out of my system.  And I know this, before I order it, yet I order it anyway.

I have a hunch that I’m going to feel about as lonely as the subway dude tomorrow…because no one will want to come within 3 yards of me.
