A day like today isn’t quite as rare as a blue moon, but it feels like it. I have nowhere to go, nobody to take care of, no responsibilities. The Ass will be taking care of the kids all day (because I took care of them all day yesterday). I sing in a choir, but we have one Sunday a month off and today is it for this month. Nobody has invited us to dinner. No birthday parties. No appointments. No corporate events. No film shoots. Nothing. I can stay in my pajamas the whole day if I want to.
It’s not like I have nothing to do, I actually have a ton of things that I should do, but it’s on my timetable, up to me. All I’ve done so far is make chocolate chip pancakes and wash the resulting dishes. Weekends at our house mean chocolate chip pancakes. I can’t even remember when we started making those, but it’s become a tradition. And I make really really good ones. Like, I could open a chocolate chip pancake restaurant.
Actually, I really could. The video store on our corner recently closed, and my next door neighbor keeps asking me what we’re going to open in its place. She’s afraid that if we don’t rent it and do something with it, then someone will open a bodega. We have a nice quiet block, even with an elementary school on the corner. But a bodega would bring all sorts of traffic and strange people, and the students would go there after school and buy things and leave trash all over our stoop and sidewalk. But somehow I don’t think a chocolate chip pancake restaurant would make enough money to support itself.
So what could we do with that space? Anyone have any ideas? It has to be something that wouldn’t take a lot of money to start up, that wouldn’t take a lot of skill, and that I could do when the kids are in school, while I’m also blogging and chasing down film shoots. Hmm. I see a few flaws in the plan already.
