He's home again...

He got in last night off the "milk run" about 7:15 pm. The milk run stops in 2 towns on it's way to Juneau, so it was a LONG flight home for him. But, it was the one with the most availablity for non-rev's so I guess beggars can't be choosers. At least he got home.

We went out to dinner last night to a mexican restaurant that has really good food but really crappy desserts. First, our waitress sucked... The restaurant was empty except for 2-3 tables. She was not attentive. She was pleasant, but when you have to go thirsty because your soda AND your water glass need to be refilled, and have needed to be refilled for the last 10 minutes, that's when you know you have a problem.

We decided to share an entree and then dessert. She gave us the options of Strawberry Shortcake, Flan and Mud Pie. The only one we hadn't tried yet was the mud pie. I should have taken a picture of it with my cell phone before we dug into it. Every other mud pie I've eaten has been ok. I'm not that big on ice-cream pie. This one sucked. They served it upside-down, with the oreo crust on top. It was like a layer of asphalt that you needed a jack-hammer to cut through. The ice-cream was nothing special. It was really cheap and gross chocolate ice-cream layered over really cheap and gross vanilla ice-cream. The only saving grace of this pie was the fun we had laughing over the hard time we had cutting through the crust on top. We tried sawing it, jabbing it with a spoon and a knife. The only way we could get through it was to jab a spoon into the top and twist.... "Congratulations... You are now dead..."

It's always a better experience when you have someone you can laugh with about it!!

I have actually gotten up and refilled my own drink before - pretty sad!

I always hate it when I waste $5-7 on a dessert, and it ends up being disappointing. I got some bananas foster cheesecake one time to share, and it wasn't more than 4 bites. And it didn't even have a caramel flavor to it...just overripe bananas.
