I was kicked out of McDonald's today -- then told I could stay.
Almost everyday for two weeks, I've been going to the north side McDonald's for wi fi. I generally get a little nosh -- a cheeseburger, fries and a medium Coke costs about $3.50.
Then today, one of the managers saw me unpacking my laptop and said they weren't open inside and said I couldn't stay. I think she saw the pathetic look on my face when I muttered that I thought it was OK because no one had kicked me out in two weeks. She said, with a smile, OK, go ahead and stay. She was quite sweet.
I've been invited to attend a Zoom meeting Monday with a group of retired IU professors to talk about the perils of local newspapers. But I warned them I'm connection poor so they're going to try and help me find a place.
I'm working on getting my medication before the month ends in a couple of days.
Each day, I'm in need of IT solutions after having an IT department for nigh 30 years now.
I miss my friends from The Office and The Shoe and Upland and Uptown and the newspaper.
I swear to Christ, I will never take anything for granted again.
I love all or you.
