Yesterday (Jan. 18th, 2010) I had to wake up at 7:00 a.m. in order to get ready, make sure Nello was ready and get him to a deli about 25 minutes away.My mom was kind enough to dress his foo
Of course Nello has to be everywhere an hour early, it was about 20-30 minutes before any other youngsters showed up. We could have gotten there an hour later and still have had time to order. Finally everyone was ready to order, they all had their decaf and sweet 'n' low. Nello ordered two sunny side up eggs, with toast and two pieces of bacon. I just had a ham, egg, and cheese bagel.I was in between Nello and his cousin, Mario(***). There were a couple of wise guys sitting around them. Some of the subjects these senior citizens covered were as follows: cargo ships, gambling, golf, grandchildren, news (national and international), war time, weather, 'young guys', and zoot suits.
Too bad my bagel sandwich didn't last longer, it should have been bigger.
After we left Manhattan Deli we went straight to BJ's to pick up some prosciutto and milk. Nello also had to buy a 12 pack of paper towels, the double ones that are almost the size of 2 paper towel rolls put togther. While he was waiting for his meat this old lady picked up a very large bag of rolls, and was rudely trying to contact a deli associate in order to inquire about the contents. "Are there twelve rolls in here?" Clearly, ANYONE, besides her, would realize there were more than just a dozen. "No, there are twenty rolls in there." The lady replied, "Oh, wow!"
I really fucking hate old people.
***My grandpa's cousin, Mario, is now deceased as of a few months ago, but before he died he was over my house, talking to my grandpa, and they were on the subject of costs of women and in reference to thousands of dollars Mario said "No pussy's worth that much." This is by far one of thee greatest things I've ever heard an 80 year old man say. ALSO, I don't know what I did to the spacing up top, and the small letter size down here, sorry...
