Today was the first day of the Home Hardware Spring Market and my jet lag is definitely getting better. It is amazing how much energy one - me - has, when one - me - only has to look after themselves.
We looked at the model Home Hardware store.
We went through the whole warehouse, with hundreds of vendor booths.
We walked up and down the aisles of the whole damn thing. It was hard work! (Fred and Peter, if you are reading this - we were working the whole time. Like every single minute, working away - for realz).
Also: cherry pie after lunch.
I don’t think I have even told you guys this, but I am not only here with my boss Fred, but also with my other boss Peter and our store manager April. I am not a manager or anything, but I’m nobody’s bitch and now that I’m over my jet lag I am definitely badass again.
Today was a pretty good day - no hairy buttcracks, no weird franco-canadian guys advertising their penises and most of all no more jet lag.
One thing I did learn today - and that was very impressively demonstrated by my roommate April - is that one can burp really loud after drinking organic beer. Like a lot. Peter really looks out for April, because she had an allergic reaction to regular beer right after we got here. She had like three beer or something and started feeling all funny. I told her it was called drunk, but she says it was an allergy and now Peter only buys organic beer for her. How cute is that.
I also may have said (after being asked by Peter where I see myself in 5 years) : “not with Home Hardware”. Ooops.
Furthermore: four Coronas and one Coors Lite = more alcohol than three Alexander Keiths. Who would have thought.
At the end of the day I talked to my husband and son; I felt really bad because my son had a migraine again today and was throwing up, but because I’m such a trooper I decided to make the best of it and party every day this week because I will probably never get away from my family again. Like ever.
Tomorrow: day 4.
