I’m on a roll now, here comes Wednesday!
Wednesdays are one of the three days that we work 23 hour shifts on. We work them Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If I’m not working a 23 hour shift on a Wednesday, I normally use that day to do laundry and clean my room. If Marsha, one of the other dispatchers and my very good friend, is off with me on Wednesday, we sometimes have Winesday. We unwind in the afternoon/evening with a bottle or two of wine and just chat.
Every other Wednesday night this winter, we’ve had Burger Bar and Trivia at Gallagher’s. The normal trivia hosts have been slightly sadistic this season. They come up with some of the most off the wall questions. But it’s fun. If I am not working, I generally go and play on the fire department/power plant team. We’re the HoneyBadgers. We generally do a fairly good job, especially if Suzy is participating. She’s the power plant representative on the team and we have adopted her into the firehouse.
But the true highlight of Wednesday night is Burger Bar. Over the winter, people can volunteer to work the grill. Some people have themed burger nights (Pirate Burger Baaarrrrrrr) and others just make some out of this world burgers. The firehouse has worked the grill a few times over the season, and Boss Hog can put together a mean burger.
On Wednesdays that don’t have burger bar or trivia, I generally hang out with a good friend of mine, Craig, and watch various TV shows. I’ve been introduced to Stargate, Big Bang Theory, Eureka and some others that I can’t remember the name of right now.
Winterbrain. It’s been rough this year.
