Wednesday: The New 3
Last night we BEAT LA! We had tickets to the Dbacks v Dodgers game (thanks Mom and Dad!) and it was quite the pitchers dual. Dbacks came out on top 1-0.
This morning was a brisk 4 mile run. It felt great out there. Almost chilly. And the run went well to0. 46:20 or thereabouts. I am trying to make 4 the new 3. I don’t even know what my plan said to do this week. I will have to look.
Because of the game and our late arrival back home (is 9:30 late to anyone else?), I didn’t make our overnight oats. So this morning was a boring, and yet still delicious, protein bar and coffee. And there were carrots. There are always carrots but I can’t keep posting those boring pictures.
For dinner, we went out. It was “date night”. I hate the pressure of date night. Why do I have to date my own husband? But it is nice to get out. I had a Groupon to a NY style deli that sounded good. I had chicken salad. I was not impressed. Michael had a Reuben and said it was great.
Speaking of Groupon, I had one for some cupcakes back in NC (Bows ‘n’ Batter for anyone local). I didn’t have a chance to use it before we left so I gave it to my good friend J. When she tried to use it, a couple of times, the woman told her that she “was no longer honoring Groupons.” That they were in some sort of dispute and Groupon owed her money. But she was more than happy to make my friend some cupcakes at the normal price. I don’t believe I would have handled it that way if I were a small business owner. Word of mouth can make or break a small business and you would want as many people to try your product as possible. Maybe she could have offered her own reduced rate? Or some sort of deal of her own? But now what she gets is people like me telling all of you of the bad experience. Good luck with your cupcake business. Really.
But my experience with Groupon, however, went much differently. Upon hearing of our trouble, they immediately credited my account for the price of the Groupon. So do I believe (or care) about her dispute? Maybe, but tot so much.
