Writing, Gobblers, & the Life of a Waitress

Around here, Thanksgiving comes early.

The weekend dragged by; I worked a lot, serving those sort of customers who wave their hands frantically above their heads as if they were stranded on a desert island and have just spotted a plane overhead. But, no…they just desperately needed another Diet Coke.

My job brings me home covered in whipped butter and smelling like a pizza shop. By the end of the weekend, my uniform is smelling up the laundry room. But, these are the things you just accept in the restaurant business! It’s still worth it to walk out with your earnings at the end of the night.

OK – so I’m already breaking my vow to not write about NaNoWriMo, but I’ll keep it brief. My posts have lessened because of it! And I even typed “writing prompts” into Google a moment ago, because it’s been difficult for me to focus on anything except the mindset of an attractive young stripper in 1985. Alright, well I suppose I can think of other things…that mindset may make the rest of my daily life pretty interesting.

My point is that my creativity is fizzling! So, please, forgive me for my lack of entertainment this month. This is me assuming I am usually quite entertaining. No, no don’t tell me the truth – I’d rather go on thinking I’m awesome.

I’ll just make it to December with the always interesting posts of my favorite bloggers!

So on to the picture I posted up there. If you are not familiar with Wawa or the delicious, steamy, Thanksgiving-explosion-in-your-mouth Gobbler, I suggest you get your booty to the East Coast, or a state over this way that has Wawa (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia), or get someone to mail the amazingness to you (not sure how well that would go over).

I know each state has their own convenience store they know and love, so I’m just doing a bit of representin’ for my own area’s favorite place to get a drunken snack at 2AM. The “Phoodies” had lovely things to say about the Gobbler, including that it made them want to light up a doobie afterwards. How can you go wrong with that? “Final Judgement: YAY.”

I especially liked the first comment underneath the article:

    1. Big fan of the Wawa Gobbler. But turbocharge that jawn and add bacon. The smoked crunch completes the sandwich, making it my favorite on the touchscreen.

What isn’t better with bacon?

  1. Vegetarian. But I get the gist of what you mean.

    I was the cheese sample girl at Treasure Island Foods many years ago, and everyone noticed what I smelled like except me. Last year I worked at Lush and came home all pleasantly perfumey — but then there was the glitter. I have a fear of glitter.

    Glad there are fewer posts because it means you’re addressing your heart’s desire. You still go girrrl.

    • I have a fear of glitter, as well. It’s like sand. Once it gets somewhere…it’s never. leaving. Ever.

      Thanks, lady! 🙂 I’m trying. But I do miss daily blog posts, and spending hours browsing through the blogs of others. Soon enough. Can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving time.

  2. NM, you are always entertaining, and witty. i just hope your guy likes pizza …and keep writing. i echo the above…you go girrrl.

  3. Great but easy question, EVERYTHING is better with bacon. Looks like I need to take a field trip to the east coast 🙂

    Sounds like you’re kickin the crap outta that novel so keep it up.!!

So...what do you think?
