And on the 23rd Day, It Rained.
This Burger King must serve all eleventy-billion at this location alone. That's a lot of french-fries.
Maybe there is a conference room in the middle with a giant shake and twelve-thousand straws coming out.
I don't know. I just thought it was amusing.
Monday morning Mom woke me up and I drove her to the Miami airport in my pajamas. Her flight was scheduled to leave at 10:05am so she decided to be there by about 8:50am. I deposited her at the terminal with plenty of time to spare and went back to the motel and crawled back into bed.
At 10:15am she called to tell me that she was (obviously) not on the plane. Her flight was delayed three hours and would not be departing until 1pm. We all wished we had thought to check her flight when the alarm clock first went off, as she could have gotten more sleep and not been bored in the airport.
Jenny and I finally got up around 11am and checked out around noon. We went in search of the "Dolphin Mall" but found the Miami International Mall instead. I succeeded in purchasing three much-needed pairs of shorts and then we made our way to the food court.
After perusing the options we decided on a Mediterranean counter. For "Fast" Mediterranean, it was pretty good!
Jenny had a combo plate with Greek salad, falafel and hummus.
I had cucumber salad, roasted potatoes, hummus, two stuffed grape leaves, and we each finished with a piece of baklava.
Jenny had to be at work at 6pm, so around 2pm we hit the road.
Back in Key West I took a nap and then got up for a couple of hours to eat dinner and put away my purchases before going back to bed.
About an hour before I retired again for the night, it started raining VERY hard and there was strong wind.
