Mexican Food and Roaches

Well yesterday was a day with the girls. We had our aforementioned Greek dinner and spent some time in the studio stamping and scrapbooking.  Tracy and the girls happened to be in the neighborhood so they came over too. My friends know Tracy and Abbey, but hadn’t yet met Milan, so that was fun. She was having a bit of stranger anxiety, but here’s a few cute pics with my friends.

Later Emily and I went to see 27 Dresses. It was a very cute movie. I highly recommend it. Definitely a chick flick though. Then we went to one of our favorite Mexican places in town. Mexican is definitely difficult to do when you’re on WW, especially with all the free chips and salsa, so it’s going to have to be a rare treat. Anyway, we had just finished eating and were just chatting, when my eyes focused on this mystery object on the wall that looked exactly like a large roach. From then on out, I couldn’t concentrate on anything else; I just kept watching that spot to see if it would move. I asked Emily, who is just sheltered enough that she’s never seen a roach (lucky soul). We tried to give them the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps it was a crack in the wall. But the more we looked, it was obviously 3 dimensional. Then we discussed what you would do if you were a waiter and noticed the roach on the wall. It would alert the whole dining room of the presence of vermin if you went to remove it. But if you didn’t, it might crawl into someone’s personal bubble and then the whole restaurant would definitely hear about it. I guess you would just have to hope no one saw it.

All the talk of roaches was giving Emily the heebie jeebies. We decided to leave and made sure we walked by the offending spot to double check. To our surprise and relief, it was not a roach. It was a tiny remnant of Chrismas tinsel still taped to the wall. With the lighting, it looked exactly like a roach with large antennae from where we sat. We had to tell the hostess that they might want to take care of that, but that we were relieved we wouldn’t have to give up one of our favorite places to eat.

  1. And by the way, they didn’t bother to remove it. It was there the next time we visited.
