I met the boss and his boss this morning to check out a couple of locations we will be doing a test program with. Everything went well, and out of the two locations, I think I got the better one.
The people are friendly, the work is simple, and it’s just running support. The following five weeks should be different, at least. My work life in retail rarely changes.
After that, I went to lunch with the bosses and talked for a while. Me and Derick have worked together a good bit over the past year. I’ve written about him before. Today was my first time meeting Martin face to face. The whole time I’ve worked for this company, I’ve never met the regional manager for my region. Nice fellow. Genuinely likable.
I can work for him.
This afternoon I came home and kicked back awhile and watched Freaky.
For me this was pretty entertaining. I kind of like horror films and I love comedy. I really enjoy Vince Vaughn. There were scenes in this movie I don’t think anyone else could have pulled off properly.
This was on HBOMax. I’d seen the DVD at work, and since it was there and I had the time, why not?
Right now, I’m watching a comedy classic, Hudson Hawk.
This isn’t considered one of Bruce Willis’ best films. This was his baby. He wrote the story. It nearly sunk his career before he made his comeback in Pulp Fiction. And the rest is history.
I think it’s great. Willis and Aiello are perfect together. Willis reminds me of his character in Moonlighting. I’m hoping that it has found some sort of cult classic status now.
Sadly, we lost Danny Aiello in 2019.
And now the fun starts.
The kids are home.
The wife is home.
Supper is on the stove.
It’s Sheperd’s Pie tonight. I love her Sheperd’s Pie.
She’s cooking it special for me tonight.
Because today is kind of special.
It’s my birthday.
That’s it. That’s the post.
