It was all fun! This was the church with real plates and utensils. Red, white and blue decorated the tables. They used flag napkins, opened, as a base for the other decorations. It was all very festive.
Free Tuesday lunch and late patriotic program. We were told to wear our patriotic clothes. Exbf wore a red 4th of July t-shirt and a flag blue hat with sequins and lights with four modes. I wore white t-shirt and flag vest-like top. It is a rectangle, blue field and stars on top half and red and white stripes on the bottom of the vest, red bracelet and nail polish. I could not find the nail paint to make fireworks. I am glad I only spent $1 on it. The vest was NOT a flag! He highly disapproved of my vest, saying I was wearing a flag. Oh poo!

As soon as his food was on the table, he passed off his potato salad bowl to me. He absolutely hates cold potatoes and peels on even hot potatoes. I scraped my baked beans onto his place. They serve the slaw and potato salad in little bowls. I suppose they dish those up and keep in the refrigerator until lunch.
I had more meat instead of ice cream. However, I ate about 1/4 cup of peach ice cream, maybe less.
He threw a very visible hissy fit. Something was wrong with his ice cream, so he just slammed the cup onto the table behind his plate with ice cream flying out the top and all over everything. He is very lucky it did not get on me. Then, he whined about his ice cream melting. If he had not complained so long about everything else wrong with his ice cream, it would not have a Tbsp of melted ice cream on top. So, he made a big deal of pouring off ice cream while he made a mean face at me. Total embarrassment.
Then, we went to bank so I could get money to take to a business and paid them. This is the place that took over 3 weeks to deposit a check. Then, when they straightened out their banking, I gave them a check that they deposited and it was sent to my bank. However, somehow it was lost for over two weeks. Neither bank could find it. So, I pay cash. The trouble is worth the peace of mind. Along the way we looked over all the businesses still repairing hail damage.
We went to the lake and drove around. A family was feeding the ducks and every duck on the lake converged. A little boy about two was running about amongst the ducks. The drake was nipping a boy about ten. But, this little two-year-old was never touched. The ducks came right to his face, and they never touched him. If my face were that low, a drake would have plucked my eyes out!
At home I PEELED about two pounds of potatoes for the crock pot that had cooked chicken yesterday. Those went into a plastic bag for him to take home. I made slaw in a gallon bag. I just dumped everything in the bag, stirred it twice with a fork, and then sealed the bag and massaged it to perfection. I didn't have to wash a bowl. He does not have to wash a bowl. WIN!
If I ever need to take slaw anywhere, I will make it in a bag. it would be easier to keep cold and would only need a bowl at the destination. Most places, I would take my own bowl.
THEN, we dressed like a cow and went to Chick-fil-A for free food. It is so much fun. Whole families come to this. I have very good pictures if I can figure out how to get them out of phone and onto blog.
He took home a huge chicken breast, cherries, potatoes, slaw. If he eats 1/4 chicken breast each meal, he will have potatoes and slaw for those four days and more potatoes and slaw for other meals. Who knows what he eats when he gets it home...lol. There are enough cherries for four days, also.
I hope these two occasions never happen on the same day again. Too much fun is exhausting.
Have you been attacked by ducks/geese wanting food NOW? Does a little melted ice cream cause you not to eat your ice cream at all or to complain loudly? Did anyone get a free Chic-fil-A? What is your opinion of "wearing a flag"?
