Friday Fragments (The Day After Thanks) 11/25/11

~~ While I'm sure everyone is still munching on Thanksgiving homemade leftovers - tonight we will be dining on restaurant leftovers.  I just didn't have it in me to cook this year.  I do have half a homemade flan in my fridge that I plan on devouring.  Normally, I could do without flan but there's this woman at work who makes them and they are AMAZING! 

~~ We took The Boy to see the Thanksgiving Day Macy's Parade yesterday - luckily my office hosts a viewing party and we had a sweet view of floats.  Best part?  We were in doors!  Free bagels, free cupcakes, free cotton candy - Oh My!  Because there's nothing like cotton candy at 8:30 in the morning.  

~~ Today I ran some errands with The Boy.  Had to stop at the eyeglass spot to place an order for new contacts.  The Boy was restless.  Bad mommy that I am, forgot to bring a fidget toy.  

"I want to go home," he said.

"After here, then the meat market and then home," I explain 

The lady at the eyeglass place said, "The meat market?  They are going to chop you up."  I know she was just trying to be friendly and playful.  But damn, my kid has autism aka LITERAL THINKER.  Please don't tell him Joe the Butcher at the meat market is going to chop him up.  Thanks.  

~~ Black Friday Shopping: PASS.  

Play along! Don't know how?  Check out Mrs. 4444 at Half Past Kissin Time for more Friday Fragments.
