Popeyes, babysitting, Virginia.


Vince has been working “hell week” at school.  He’s working the lights for the fall musical – The Little Mermaid and opening night is Friday! The kids have to stay in the auditorium and not leave until about 9 pm at night.  Knowing this, some clever parent coordinated a bulk take out enterprise and they they had a chance to pre-order dinner.  Not wanting to make it super easy for me, Vince and his pals decided that the pre-ordered dinners were lame and that Sam’s mom got better, tastier dinners.  And then, was I really going to let Sam’s mom feed Vince all week?  No.  So that meant that today at about 5 pm, I got an order for a 12 piece family meal from Popeye’s.  (With a smoochie emoji.) It was more expensive than I thought it would be – almost $33 – and I thought it was too much food for the three boys who had eschewed the pre-ordered meals and were in it together to wrangle their mothers to become food delivery couriers.  But I delivered it and some of it came back to the house!  Jeremy had a piece and said, damn!  that is some good chicken.  (OK, maybe he didn’t say damn…)


Vince had two babysitting gigs this past weekend netting him a total of $90. One required driving and we were in Philly, so he took a Lyft.  He doesn’t like using Lyft, it makes him nervous – he said that his heart was pounding while he was waiting for the car.  We subsidized the Lyft ride, and he might have given me a hug for thanks.


Thank you Virginia!

  1. "Love that chicken from Popeye's", I've been to the original one in Metaire, LA. It's goooddd. Ask Vince if he knows you can donate to a charity via LYFT now.
