In a few short hours I was on a bus and quickly put aside from my troubles as they past mile by mile.
Man did I need this trip, and what a trip it was!
Step 1: Ingredients
My fellow gentleman traveler was well versed in the arts of a good spread and together we had:
1 pack Chow Mein Stir Fry Noodles, left over bean dip, 1/2 bag of nacho chips, 2 nacho cheese packs, water, some vegetable bags, and Sriracha to taste.
My fine Tex-Mex friend just had a stiff question, "What's with the pictures?"
I was suddenly enlightened to explain, "If guys like us don't change those learned behaviors all we are going to do is help recidivism while we sit wishing, wanting, and waiting (jj) over and over again and again. This is my own rehabilitation program and everybody is welcome to check it out."
"OK, just don't put too much water in."
Step 2: Chow Mein Noodles
I doubled up 2 plastic bags from the produce department.
Step 3: Nacho Cheese Chips
Step 4: Bean Dip
Step 5: Nacho Cheese
Step 6: The Water
Give the bag a spin, mush it all together, and let it "cook". By cook is, letting it set until it evenly absorbs the water throughout the spread.
Step 7: Consumption
I repackaged some in the original Chow Mein container (at my attempt at civility, domestication, or normality) BUT that soon got back to normal having to board a new bus on the fly and eat as shown in the 2nd photo.
The 3rd photo, that is the normal way of distribution and consumption in most local, state, and federal establishments using mostly good old Keefe to do the shopping.
Step 8: Did I Make It?
It's been a couple months since my hose burned down and it was the best thing that could have came from the decisions I had made.
