dirty little secret

this past week, i had dinner with associates at a french bistro in bethesda.  at 7:30ish in the evening, i was surprised to see the parking enforcement personnel still doing their rounds.  we left around quarter to 10 and one colleague who got a parking ticket told me that the parking ordinance lasts until 10 in the evening.  the city must really be making boatloads of money with all the aggregate chunk change.  i know some bigger cities do.  it’s their bread and butter.  nevertheless, i was one lucky sob who got away from this system, and l.o.a had a lot to do with it.

saturday morning and the morning sun was rising, i left the pad at 7am to start the weekend right.  i didn’t really notice this until now, but seeing the neighbors’ parked rides outside made the street look like a range rover expo.  i finally decided to join another fitness club besides the one that i currently have.  my upcoming sunday schedule would look like hitting the weights and running, church, barnes &noble, and outdoor sports for the rest of the year.

last year in baltimore, we hung out with a friend of a friend who worked at his dad’s bar/restaurant/music hall.  toad the wet sprocket just performed the night before and the gentleman was still hungover from the shindig.  he then offered to wait the tables while we chose their signature liquors.  mt asked, “how much do you think is this guy’s net worth.”  cl replied, “with several businesses run by the family and him taking over this place, i’d say he’s way worth more than what this business is making alone.”  and he doesn’t mind waiting tables.

i still thank God for preparing me to be strong through all of these life-changing circumstances.  after years of honoring my vows, breaking my trust will not deter me from attaining my ongoing business endeavors.  my goals will be much easier and faster to achieve this time.

    You’re lucky. I use to have the WORST luck with getting parking tickets back in Philly. I swear those parking attendants were always lingering around MY meter to wait for the very second it expired. They were out to get me I tell ya! I’m so glad I don’t have to deal w/ that here in Phoenix. Hmm, I wonder what my net worth is….probably in the negatives. lol
