seen and heard

The other day, as I was leaving the bank with a wad of ones for the bus, I noticed a sign that says "Thank you." It's in pretty big print on an a standard sheet of paper. Along the bottom of the sign, in much smaller print, was the following: "Please see a teller or a brochure for details." I'm not sure what details are necessary in that case. Perhaps they wanted to clarify just what they were thanking me for?


Last night, we went to dinner for possibly our last Thursday night dinner out for a while. As we were eating, someone across the dining room was imbibing in some tequila, which, she declared, changed her person-al-ity. For a full five minutes that felt like much longer, she felt it necessary to loudly repeat "Balls to the wall!" When she tired of this, she shortened it to just "Balls!" At one point, a couple of diners felt it more comfortable, perhaps, to move to our side of the dining room, away from the balls-to-the-wall woman.

Dinner and entertainment.

Awesome! I am so glad I am not the only one who witnesses these acts of craziness!

Definitely not. Of course, Cardo thinks I listen to everything around me, but this was really loud. Everyone in the lower dining room of Silverpeak (the one with the roof) heard, I'm sure.
