Comments for Lunch Time Ponderings
Who Moved That?: 4/ 8/04The other night when Sean and I got home from day care / work, I parked the car in a guest spot right at the back of the parking lot because I wasn't sure if Ian was home yet. Sometimes parking is really bad for him so I always try to save him the reserved spot if I can.
The next morning I expected Sean to see the car as soon as we came down the stairs and go right towards it. He instead started to head off towards the reserved spot. I ended up having to pick him up and carry him back to the car which he hated. I think from his perspective he couldn't see his curtain in the window. If he doesn't see the curtain he doesn't think that it's our car.
As soon as I brought him around the side and he could see the curtain he said in a really surprised voice: "Who moved that?"
Changing Colors:Since starting my new job in January, I've been buying lunch once a week at a local Chinese restaurant. I was just there on Monday and everything was the same from the previous visits. Today, only four days later, the woman and teenaged boy who run the place at lunch time were replaced by a different woman and teenaged boy. The place had been completely repainted on the inside, changing the wall trimming from brown to green. I don't know if they've had a change of management or if I got there at the start of a new shift and that the wall color was just some redecorating. At least the food was the same. The experience made me think of Sean's double-take when I had parked the car in an unexpected place.
