Now for a who me? Somehow I got roped into making the coleslaw for a fundraiser dinner for the All School Reunion. I distinctly recall being at a meeting..and said quote " If you are having coleslaw make sure you recruit someone that knows how to make it..so that it is edible. " I absolutely hate coleslaw that is a mess of watery crap that puddles all over your plate. So much for my opinionated opinion. There was no waving of my arms hollering "Pick me, Pick me, I am a master chef and my coleslaw is to die for." I DID NOT volunteer..something got lost in translation..yet I am making it and taking photographs..I know I didn’t volunteer for that one either. I must learn that when I follow Far Guy to these meetings just to keep him company ..that I should keep my big mouth shut, and occasionally leave my camera at home. I was informed of this coleslaw situation by Lefty last Sunday, he said he looked back in the minutes and Yup sure enough my name was next to coleslaw. And maybe it was ..as a contact person..not as the preparing person, or maybe as a person with an opinion..not even these idiots would want a person with zero cooking ability in charge of their coleslaw..would they? Luckily I placed a phone call to my Mother for her recipe (Coleslaw for 300) and a plan of attack was formed. There is "No cooking" involved with coleslaw..only mixing..I thought there might be lots of chopping..but the gal that ordered the food ordered shredded cabbage..yeah! My Mother says it will be a piece of cake..and she is meeting me to give me final instructions and to oversee the slaw. She is famous for her coleslaw, it is one of her specialties..so I will be saved this time.
I hope they have a good turn out, it is at the Legion..they will have some of their buttons for sale and some of their over priced t shirts etc.. get this ..they are selling a whole line of t shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, caps etc.. and the Reunion Committee gets a dollar an item as a kick back. This way they get out of ordering 100’s of shirts..and investing lots of money..but still a dollar an item? They have a reunion web site, I went there to check on the items for sale..they had two different prices..one price on the order form and a totally different price in the photo list..duh…no one proof read it? I sent off an email pointing out their erors ..the idiots.
At least the weather will be cooperative. It has been a really nice week. Not that I have been out and about very much..my toothache is subsiding..and the huge pocket of puss has been reduced to a pea sized problem. The pain is tolerable now, at least it is not going kerthunk..kerthunk along with my heartbeat. I no longer have the chills and today I will put real clothing on ..because they would probably frown upon me showing up to make coleslaw in my jammies. Not that it would bother me.. but poor Far Guy would probably be embarrassed. And people would talk.. well they would talk more..I have a pretty good inkling that some people in town might actually call me "a character". Far Guy says I should not give them any more ammunition ..so I will conform to societies expectations once again.
