RG Interview

Posted on Thursday 5 February 2009

Check out a five-question interview with yours truly on Menu Pages South Florida.

And now I must go back to digging out all the fleece I thought I would never wear again as I try to stay warm during this taste of winter that is sweeping south all the way to the Keys! Brrr. Even Rouletta is shivering.

    The plural of the singular noun “folk” is also “folk” — unless, of course, you rely on that renowned authority of grammar and syntax, Porky Pig.

    Ibbity, Ibbbity, Ibbbbity, . . . .

    (And if you need to look at my email address to determine this poster, I am going to be sorely disappointed.)

    Cutest puppy turtle necks at the feed store. I almost got it. Then I got to thinking about Rueletta’s brindle coat not matching the argyle pattern.

    Hmm… This reminded me of jury duty back in 1984 – “They get all misty-eyed and sometimes a little arrogant and say, “Well, good for you dear, being a waitress and all.” Ha! ”

    It was a case involving a banquet waitress who had suffered a serious shoulder injury in a car crash; we were deciding the damages in the civil case. She was no longer able to do that kind of work (where she netted about $20-25 per hour between salary and tips) and had taken a job at a [major retailer] for maybe $5 per hour.

    There was a doctor’s wife on our panel; she had the attitude of “she’s just a waitress” – well, she had two or three children who were in college and she was very intelligent based on her testimony. So, we decided she was entitled to a darn good amount for “lost future wages”! This would allow her to attend college or a trade school and get back to the same sort of income stream that she had prior to the injury.

    As to Rouletta – I dunno; she had a look of “OMG, what now?!”

    Great interview… Of course you’re not going to give away where you work. I would never either…. although, I do sometimes worry about customers figuring it out when I write stories about them. I guess I can always deny it.

    Savannah–Thanks. It was kinda nice to be interviewed.

    Grammarian–Groooooooan. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Upset Waitress–Thank God you didn’t buy her something that doesn’t match her coat!


    Mary–Rouletta always looks like that, with good reason….

    Biztone–Where I work is irrelevant. Identifying names and places wouldn’t add anything to the point of the stories I write. That’s just me, though.
