You made a killing as a telemarketer? I'm tired of being broke and I'm ready to make a killing.

But there's some vague Bob Dylan line that I recall about how how one cannot afford to buy back one's soul. Am I really blaming Dylan for my inability to make lots of money? I'll blame anyone.

Linda said...

Yeah, I didn't mention the soul-sucking part of that job.

That and the perverts who would tell me to "just keep talking"...

And you were a darn fine waitress at that! I wish there was a Steak and Shake here in C'ville. Sigh.

Linda said...

There's one within 10 minutes of my house. I don't get there near enough...

When the first S&S opened in this area (sometime in the mid to late 90s), my mom and I drove over 30 miles to a truck stop just for steakburgers. Worth every mile...

Lesley said...

Strawberry Fields salad, huh?

Yeah, me, too. I've tried to make it at home and it's close, but not quite the same. Food always tastes better when I don't have to make it anyway.

Linda said...

There's another one in town - I'd say just as good, but different, with a balsalmic dressing. I think the fact that I had one (the original one) for dinner last night may have influenced me to add it to the list.

And I brought home a piece of carrot cake that I had for breakfast this morning.
