I have to say, I’m being slightly melodramatic by saying I almost ‘died’ (but who knows what tomorrow may bring).
Let me go on….
I woke up, a typical Saturday. A coffee, a banana & a couple hard boiled eggs started my morning. This weekend was a little different though. My son, Nick, was still on his honeymoon & I had picked up his dog the day before.
Pike is a great dog, young & friendly. Unfortunately, our dog, older & little reserved, doesn’t like him very well. Pike was chasing our dog around the house. Vinnie, the alarmist, was in a panic. Growling & showing his teeth (only when he was at my feet) tripping me a few times, spilling his food/water, and nervously peeing on the floor made the day a little frantic.
Let’s just say the energy levels of the two dogs completely drained me. Thank goodness it was only for a day. We needed to pick up the newlyweds in the afternoon.
My husband, Jon, went to the airport to pick them up. I headed to Home Depot’s parking lot with their dog & vehicle to help shorten their trip home.
Pike & I had a nice drive. Just me & him… the calm was welcoming. We stopped at Dairy Queen on the way & shared an ice cream cone as we waited.
As the kids arrived & went on their way, Jon & I debated whether we would go to Red Lobster or Olive Garden… Olive Garden it was! We had to wait about 5 minutes for our table… no big deal. It was a Saturday night.
Of course we honed in on the free samples of wine. Our waitress brought out some Cabernet & berry sangria. Being a red wine lover, I ordered the Cabernet & Jon a Bloody Mary. It didn’t take long for our beverages to arrive.
For dinner, Jon decided to go with the Shrimp Scampi linguine & I went with my favorite, Portabella Mushroom Ravioli (delicious BTW).
We were served our salad & totally enjoying our cocktails. Then I emptied out my wine decanter only to see that a glass shard was at the bottom of the small carafe. After chatting to the waitress, she said a glass ‘exploded’ in the wait station & thought everything was cleaned up (apparently not!)
Pretty sure I didn’t swallow any, but you never know. Googled the whole ‘swallowing’ glass thing. The articles assured me that I’d be OK, just be aware that if I had any extreme pain in my abdomen, I probably should go to the emergency room. Hmmm….
They comped my meal & gave me a free glass of wine & dessert. BOO-Ya!
True Story! I’m still here… haven’t died yet.
