As I was walking in to my office this morning, I felt breezily confident and airy despite the tropical 100+ heat here today because of my cool light blue linen pants, my new sunglasses, and my hair pulled back (I thought) rather elegantly. I strolled down campus drive, thinking of my own sophistication, thinking how Clinton and Stacy on What Not to Wear would view me as a veritable fashion icon.
I approached the office door, walking under a lovely magnolia tree. I pulled my hair out of its elegant updo (okay, it was a ponytail) in preparation for entering the cooler office.
And a bird pooped right on my pants.
I think that sums up today. However, for lunch, I do have a nice salad that is very easy and a good use for leftover pork. Do not let the proximity to the bird poop story put you off.
Summer Navy Bean Salad
1 pork chop, cut into 1/2″ cubes
1 large tomato, cubed
1 can navy beans
Drizzle above with 2-3 tbsp. good olive oil, 2-3 tbsp. white and red balsamic vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste.
Do not allow to spill into the bag you carry into work, as it is hard to get out of wallets, checkbooks, hairbrushes, and the serial port in your Blackberry.
Last Friday, I drove to Murfreesboro with my friend Barb to go to a stitch n bitch at a yarn shop there. We ate an early supper, and about five minutes after we sat down I knocked over my water. Later, we went through the Krystal drive-through and Barb, as usual, pitched in for gas by buying me a drink. When we reached our destination, I put my drink on top of the van while I was getting my stuff together, and it slid right off and plopped lid-down on the asphalt.>>Today, after lunch, she congratulated me for not spilling anything. 🙂
