"Don't Be Chicken Shit" - Monster Squad

Talked to my boss and he's agreed to reduce my work load to three day a week.  This will give my spine time to heal, and I'm pretty darn happy about that.

And he was super nice about it.

Thanks to all you Boogerbutts for the support.  Sometimes I'm a chicken shit. And when I am, I hear Phoebe's voice from Monster Squad say, "Don't be chicken shit." 

In juicing news, it's day 14 of 28.  Half-way mark, and it flew by.  Tomorrow I weigh-in and Monday I do the Chubba Bubba Report.  Hope to see you there.

PS:  I bought this at the Farmer's Market this morning.

    1. No, I'm sorry. Maybe I wrote it wonky. Three day work week is what I'm reducing my load to. No full-time right now. No hot side, ever.

    2. Alex, I went back and rewrote the first paragraph. I re-read it and it was confusing. My bad.

  4. Maybe I'm being dense, but what is that in the photo? Some kind of fruit? Love the color!

  7. I hope you continue to heal. Kitchen labor is brutal. All that time on your feet, the lifting, neck craned, carpal tunnel, etc. Oi. Rough stuff!

    1. So true. I never realized before I started working in food, just how much energy goes into making that one meal that someone sits to relax and enjoy eating.

      I was doing great right up until I started training on hot side. My spine says, no way. Bummer, really.
