Anyway, this isn't a story about B10 and my broken heart. This is a cautionary tale about not sleeping in. Wednesday is the day that the Green City Market takes over Lincoln Park. I usually go there around 10 or 11 when it's being swarmed by Lincoln Park mommies (or nannies) and their double wide strollers. It's not a pleasant experience, but I love being able to get fresh produce and chat with the various vendors. I decided that since I was up so early I would head down to the market and beat the crowd. This turned out to be a great move because when I got there the market was empty and I had more time to peruse the stalls at leisure. I knew i wanted to make a mushroom soup so I stopped by the booth with all the mushrooms. The very attractive mushroom guy suggested i do three different kinds: cremini, shitake and oyster. It was about $18 for two pounds of mushrooms so this soup better taste delicious.
After I got everything I needed (asparagus, strawberries, thyme, fresh eggs and bread from Bennisons) I decided to take a stroll around the nature boardwalk and into the zoo. I was cutting through the zoo and planning my dream wedding that would take place at Cafe Brauer. I was deep in my head and having a very peaceful journey....and then I fell flat on my face. Turns out there was a big black hose crossing the path and I was so busy planning my imaginary wedding that i did not see it. I tripped and fell hard on my left knee and hand. I haven't fallen like that since elementary school. And damn did it hurt! I felt like crying. I was bleeding and badly torn up. I managed to limp to the bus stop and all really wanted to do was head home and crawl back into bed. However, I couldn't head straight home because I needed to stop at the grocery store to pick up a few items.
I swung by a small neighborhood grocery store and saw that they had el milargro flour tortillas. These are my fave and I got the idea to do chorizo and egg burritos for breakfast. Surely that would make my day better. So, after purchasing a few necessities I headed home. Right now I'm enjoying a delightful mix of moscato and grapefruit juice. I'm going to make my burritos and head back to bed. Hopefully, when i wake up it will be a better day.
