They Didn't Ask Me

You Won't Believe What Happened Next

So, after losing my menu twice today, at breakfast and lunch, I had no expectations for dinner. But... lo and behold my cheeseburger arrived. I had to check and indeed my second dinner menu slip was there, because the main entree tonight was a turkey burger. I like turkey burgers, Mrs. Dr. Phil makes lovely ones, but I don't trust the hospital. I wouldn't trust a tofu dish from them either.

So, 1 for 3. Not a strikeout. Hey, it's the weekend.

Then it got surreal.

Because midway through munching my cheeseburger, dietary comes it with another tray for me. The other dinner slip was found? No. I immediately spot the turkey sandwich. Does the menu slip say Lunch. Uh, yes.


So how the hell do I score this? Did they fill a lunch menu slip at dinnertime? Or, as my roommate suggest, has it been sitting around since noon?

I guess I'm going to have to score the kitchen as 1-4 for three meals today. Now we'll see if they send up my standing order evening turkey sandwich.

Ah, life's little interests when you're in a hospital bed.
