12-13 January 2018 (Saturday)

On these days in 1937 (Tuesday,Wednesday):
Had "hearing test" in school today. (I don't like it). Had an awful test in arithmetic. Didn't slid. Practiced and read new book. 
Heard "One Man's Family". Gee it's good. Did school work and read. Still snow. but I haven't slid. I like snow. 
Sorry, forgot yesterday's.

I will relate the following, however: The Spousal Unit's flight from AZ wasn't getting in until almost 11:30 last night and while I was walking at NGate I decided to say f*** it and dropped into an Italian restaurant for a pint. Sat there with a Guinness for a while and then an attractive, well-made up black woman asked if the seat next to me was taken, I said no, she sat down. For quite a while I didn't try to engage her in conversation -- for whatever reason; didn't want to bother her, didn't want her to think I was hitting on her, etc. -- but finally said f*** it and asked her how the salmon she'd ordered was.

Turned out she was a simply delightful woman, 70 years old (I would have guessed 50, tops), had lived a very interesting life. I was enjoying the visit so much I ordered a second pint and we chatted for quite a while, she showed me pictures of her kids and grandkids, etc. I hope I made her evening more pleasant.
