Good job, Senior and Senora Oyster. Things are not looking up. Even if this thing is complete hysteria, our world has already changed dramatically, and all those eateries we loved and have talked about all these years on this and other sites are doomed. Restaurants can’t be closed for weeks or months and magically re-open.
Obviously, this is also the end of most other industries. May it all be a hoax and we all rise from the ashes. I wish you all well. Stay well fed and close to those you love. Mary (I once had a little lamb)
Just to get the Wifeacita and myself out we went trolling for trains and saw three nice ones thank you. The railroads are still running and don’t underestimate the amount of freight they deliver to your life on a daily basis.
Our journey took us down Washington Avenue and past El Tiempo with a sign rita’s and fajitas to go. Please, we’re not gonna stop?
They have rita’s at 15 bucks for a 16 oz and 99 buckos for a gallon. The fajitas at 19.99 are enough to feed two.
The guy in front got two gallons and a box of food and just shrugged his shoulders at the cost.
We’re in hoarder mode and ordered twelve dozen gallons of margaritas and charged it to a credit card number we lifted from some not doobie something guy.
This afternoon someone told me that the drinks to go has been rescinded and that only closed bottles like wine and beer can be purchased. I was hoping that was not the case because I still want to go to los Tios and get some of their margaritas. It’s just been too cold and dreary today.
Second take-out of the quarantine today was Himalaya.
Chicken Hara Masala
Some freebies from Kaiser: Samosas and his wonderful Magic Mustard Sauce that he serves with his Hunter’s Beef, which is actually Indian spiced corned beef, shredded and griddled on the flat top until crispy. As I recall, Bourdain loved that dish.
The Wifeacita after several phone conversations with our doctor is assuming she has the corona.
She works for the health department and in their infinite wisdom she was sent to a city center where a thousand second graders were having their teeth looked at in mid March second week. She was crowd control and started seeing symptons a week later.
This was the week the rodeo was canceled on a Wednesday but they were sent back out on Thursday to soldier on. Friday HISD canceled classes and she was sent back to work.
I told her the stupid ass city was trying to kill both of us.
Today she calls in at work and was promptly bitched at by her beeatch supervisor because she had type a flu, we both had flu shots last year, in in January with a note from a positive test despite stern orders from our great doctor not to go to work.
I/we are so pissed. She had some choice words for the city but I came on one from the film Office Space, cock gobblers, she even used it with our doctor. The doctor says he will take care of the city.
She seems a little better but the evening fever hasn’t ramped up yet.
From the doctor:
DO NOT go to the ER unless you have severe breathing problems because of all the sickness and you may get worse. They will cut you loose unless you need a ventilator
No Advil only Tylenol for fever
No testing because the results will take too long plus he thinks it’s running it’s course in her
Any other questions please ask as I have some extra insight.
Oh my gosh I’m so sorry to hear this! I hope she feels better soon and it seems like she is pushing through at this point. I feel so bad for her. I was just talking yesterday with Mr. Lamb about how much business the lawyers are going to get out of this virus. Y’all take care and keep us updated, let us know when she fully recovers.
