Thursday Is Random

Tidbits from a phone call with my former spouse:

Keegan apparently managed to acquire two more boo-boos last night, adding to the hitting his face on the shelf and the being bitten on the neck by another kid incidents that went down at daycare yesterday. Talk about a tough day for him.

I used 4,750 cell phone minutes last month. Fortunately 3,000 of them were off peak so technically I went over by 100 minutes. Which isn't so bad. That's like 79 hours on the phone which averages to 2 1/2 hours per day. Okay maybe I have a tinsy addiction.

He mentioned that he could tell the last time he saw me that I lost weight. Then we shared how neither one of us has pants that fit. It is slightly amusing that we've both shed pounds since getting separated.

On a totally different topic:

Is there any medical condition associated with craving mexican food? I wanted it last night but Erika and I ended up eating at the mall food court due to the torrential rain. She did jokingly point out ta*co bell to me, but I passed in favor of Ch*ik-fil-a. I was reading an article this morning and the next page was a review of tex-mex and mex restaurants in NH. I even had a santa fe rice & beans cryo diet meal for lunch but it only temporarily abated the craving.

"Hey Keegan, help mommy eat her giant plate of everything nachos."

Naw, maybe not.
