Facing the fear

I did it.

I faced my fear.

It was scary, I am not going to lie to you.

People were starring at me.

People laughed under their breaths.

My palms were sweaty (which was a problem because I was carrying little man in his car seat).

My stomach was growling (which I think everyone in a 10 mile radius heard). 

Did I mention that it was 3:30 and I still hadn't had lunch?


I showed my face at Salsarita's. This is the first time since the catapulting salsa incident.

I ordered the same thing a always do, two tacos and chips and salsa. There were 2 employees that recognized me. I smiled and told them that I decided to show my face again. The tacos were calling my name.


The salsa was calling my name, too. But it was in more of a taunting manner. Hahaha CARRIE!!!

One of the guys took the tray for me to my table. He said that he didn't want me to spill it again. Hahaha dude, you are so funny.

And for the record, I didn't drop it, I catapulted it into my face. So having you carry it to the table isn't really helping things. If you really want to help, get me a bib.

I put too much ice in my diet coke and finished it too quickly, but I was afraid to go get more, because this is how the last tray ended up in my bra, upon my return to the table.

I waited a few minutes, gathered up the nerve, and went to get more Diet Coke. I then came back to the table and pushed the tray as far away from the edge as possible. Then I sat down like a ballerina. I tried hard to look graceful (not that I was successful, but at least I made an effort).

As I sat down, the booth made a squeaky fart like noise and the table next to me glanced in my direction. I gave them a look that said "Mexican food. It'll get you every time." They didn't seem amused.

As I sat there eating my tacos without incident, there was one thing that kept plaguing me: The salsa.

I have never eaten chips and salsa so slowly. I was determined not to get a drop on me. I am pretty sure that the smell is still lingering from last week.

I finished the chips and salsa. They were delicious. Hahaha, who's laughing now salsa?
