So there I was, sitting at work, determined not to indulge in Lame Post Friday. I’ve had a week of stupid posts! I was going to have a Mohawk Valley adventure and do a REAL post! There were all kinds of things I could do.
For example, I could make my annual trip to Melfe’s Shoe Service for my work shoes. That would be right on the way home. Or I could go the other way but still in Ilion, and have a cup of Moose River Coffee. Mmmm… hot coffee would set me up for the evening. Or, right next to Moose River Coffee is Beer Belly Bob’s. I could go with a different beverage, although I would have to go home to drink it. If I wanted to drive a little further, I could go to Original Herkimer Cheese and get some Chudder (tastes like cheddar, spreads like butter). Yum! I could also see if the Ilion Farmer’s Market at Clapsaddle Farm is still open. It is under new ownership.
Perhaps I could go home first and change my clothes. Then I could take a drive to Little Falls. I have been wanting to go to Huckleberry Letterpress again. I could probably write about them for Mohawk Valley Living magazine (I think my deadline is soon). There are several other shopping destinations in Little Falls: Prima Donna’s Boutique, Rochette, the Selective Eye at Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts, Little Falls Antique Center and the Shops at 25 West. Hmm… maybe I was getting a little too ambitious.
I was still undecided as I left my place of employment. To make a long story short (I know: too late), I went home and posted the following on Facebook:
So I sit at work thinking, “It’s going to be even colder tomorrow. I should do my shit today and stay home tomorrow.” Then I leave work, and it’s face-hurting cold and the roads suck, and I think, “What have I got to do that is so goddam important, anyways?”
