The food truck at my apartment tonight had gyros, so I got one made with lamb. I did not get a side. The gyro had onions, which I only recently started to like raw. There was a guy already there waiting, and he had his dog with him. The dog looked like a mix between a Rottweiler and a Labrador. After glancing back and smiling at the dog a few times, I asked the guy what kind it was. He said he didn’t know, but it was some type of Lab mix. I told the guy it looks like there is Rottweiler in him too, and I asked if I could pet him. He said yes, so I scratched the dog’s head until the guy told the dog to sit down.
I checked the mail on the way back upstairs, and wondered if I had received the gift card Graham’s mom said she was sending. She said she thought of me and got it when she was in “our favorite store,” but I don’t know which that could be. My first guess was Target. That would upsetting if the gift card had arrived today, since I had just come from Target and spent over $100 on makeup and clothes. The only mail was a bill and some coupons.
I got upstairs and ate the gyro while watching an episode of Chopped that had already started. The guide said “one of the judges becomes inordinately upset by a non-basket ingredient,” and I earnestly hoped I hadn’t missed that part. What could the ingredient be? What about it could have made a judge so upset? Which judge was it? I realized I had missed it when I didn’t see any scene like it in the remainder of the episode. Will that episode ever come on again for me to see the scene? How much will I ruminate on this in the days to come? Maybe I can search online for clips or even a synopsis of that scene. As I was eating the gyro, some of the tomatoes and lettuce fell off, so when I finished I sprinkled salt on the tomatoes and ate them with a fork. I still felt hungry, but wasn’t in the mood for anything else.
