Tonight is the first monthly dinner meeting of Ilion Little Theatre Club for the 2015-16 season. I plan to attend. After all, I like to believe I am a valued member of the organization. Then again, every member is valuable. We all make our contributions.
I intend to bring chips and dip as my contribution to the meal. I usually bring an appetizer kind of thing, because I am usually hungry as soon as I get there (full disclosure: I am hungry most of the time; that’s why I’m overweight). Sometimes it is pepperoni, cheese and crackers. I thought this time I’d mix it up a little. I thought, “I’ll make my famous garlic dip.” However, since I am sometimes mandated to work late, I asked Steven to pick up a package of onion soup mix, so I would have a faster option.
At work today, I pondered what I would do. If I got home at my usual time, prior to four p.m., I would crush some garlic and get to work. If I got home later, I had my onion soup mix back-up plan. Everything would be great.
So I got home at the regular time and felt utterly exhausted. I don’t know what my problem is. I came home and stayed there Monday and Tuesday. Only on Wednesday did I have to rush back out for our pick-up rehearsal. Could it be I am getting old? SAY IT AIN’T SO! Let’s blame it on the extra weight. I can lost weight (maybe) but I sure as hell can’t get any younger (and anyone who says they can is LYING!).
The first thing I saw when I came into the kitchen (after my beloved husband), was the box of onion soup mix (store brand, by the way). I debated. For one reason, I had planned to write my blog post about making my famous garlic dip. Food posts are usually fun, and well received by many. First I would sit down, have a cup of coffee, take off my work shoes, breathe a little…
You can see where this is going. I still have not mixed up the dip, but I intend to as soon as I hit Publish (oh yeah, and share the post on Facebook). It will be the easy kind. I think my theatre friends will be OK with it. I only hope my blog reading friends are OK with a post about… well, this. Then again, this is Non-Sequitur Thursday. Happy Thursday, everyone.
