Today I drove to Ilion, NY (which is very close to Herkimer, where I live, in case you didn’t know) to actually apply for a job in person. After getting frustrated filling out online applications, it was almost a pleasure to sit and fill in the blanks. I even got to keep the pen, so score!
Of course, it is not truly a pleasure to have to look for a job, so I decided to treat myself to lunch at Sorrento’s Pizzeria and Restaurant. For another reason, I feel I need to support our local businesses. Are these mere rationalizations to have a yummy lunch? Go ahead and think that if you like, Judgy McJudgerson!
I wore my mask till I was seated at a socially distanced table. I ordered Greens Francesca, which were on special. Yum! I overheard another patron ask the waitress if they could pretend it was Monday so he could order the Monday special. She said no, because she worked open to close on Monday and did not want to do that again.
At one point the lights flickered. I said it meant the place was haunted. The waitress said, no, it was because it was the wrong bulb for the fixture. I liked my explanation better.
I enjoyed my lunch and took leftovers home. Maybe I can find a recipe for greens and make some myself at home. Maybe I can find a locally owned place to purchase the greens. That will be worth another blog post!
