I got a ticket this weekend for only making a rolling stop at a stop sign. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! I haven’t gotten a ticket in about 7 years and never for not stopping at a stop sign. Boo!!!
Didn’t the police officer understand that there were 2 puppies romping around outside in a yard that caught my attention? Stupid cute puppies!
My wise Dad asked if I immediately said I was so very sorry and would never let it happen again to the police officer. And well, no I didn’t. I just gave her my license and proof of insurance and kept quiet. Giving an apology in a sweet, fake voice…I just couldn’t bring myself to do it.
If I’d known ahead of time that it would have been a $141 ticket, I sure would have been sweet and turned on the waterworks for good measure though!!
Oh well, live and learn.
You know what else I learned?
Caffe Moderne serves great breakfast!!! I’ve been to Caffe Moderne a number of times for lunch or dinner. I usually get The Roman sandwich with tomato bisque soup. Our book club group regularly meets here for dinner and gossip. But, I’d never made it over there for breakfast.
I had plans to meet my friend, Mari, for lunch on Saturday. She was kind enough to agree to meet at 10 am, so that I could finally try Caffe Moderne’s breakfast. And because I knew I would have a busy afternoon of baking on my hands.
I’ve heard AWESOME things about Caffe Moderne’s The Bella, which is their pumpkin cinnamon waffles. I decided that I’m going to wait it out to try these until the fall though. I think they’ll feel more special then. Also, after eating so many dang carbs recently, I was craving some protein.
I decided on The Gustav omelet with a side of fruit.
The Gustav is made with eggplant, tomato, zucchini, onion, and Gournay cheese. It was delicious!! I definitely recommend it.
The downside of my Caffe Moderne experience was the service. When we got there, only one server was working. She was hustling though! i felt for her. Shortly after we ordered, 3 other servers finally showed up to work. But the one assigned to us kind of stunk!! No refills on coffee or water. And I finally had to ask her for our checks, ugh.
I gave her a snarky look when she walked away after we paid. But she turned around in time to see me. Oops!! I felt so mean and ended up giving her a good tip, ha.
Hope you have a great day!! Please make a complete stop at stop signs during your morning commute.
