The first part of my day was spent having my mouth pricked with needles, violated by drills, my lip stretched all of which resulted in me being unable to feel my face until a little after noontime. That necessary evil known as Dental Work. I had two Crowns put on today. All kidding aside, my Dentist is the best. Only Dr. Claude can make going to the Dentist fun. Not the most exciting morning but a day at the Dentist in Key West beats a day in the Park in Detroit.
I came home afraid to eat or drink anything out of feat I would wear it. I finally got brave and had Oatmeal with diced Strawberries and a cup of Tea I drank with a straw. I must say it hit the spot. Kitty liked hers too.
By now I could feel my face and didn't sound like I was drunk so I made a few work phone calls then went downtown to meet a cient who works at the Mel Fisher Museum. Mel Fisher is one f the very few Tourist Attractions I enjoy. No matter how many times I am there I am still amazed picking up the Gold Bars and seeing the artifacts from his salvages and discoveries. Most people only know Mel from The Atocia but he was involved in dozens of salvages and wrecks. The Atocia was his most well known accomplishment but there were many others just like it.
As long as I was downtown I did a few boring but necessary work errands; banking, Post Office, Clerk of Courts to look up a Foreclosure, Registry of Deeds. Yes, I know this probably doesn't excite you but it is part of everyday life as a Realtor in Key West.
It was abut 5:00 by the time I finished and I was getting hungry since the only thing I was able to eat all day was a bowl of Oatmeal around 11:00 AM. I went over to 2 Cents Restaurant for Happy Hour and an appetizer. They have a pretty neat Happy Hour. Since gambling and drinking tend to go hand in hand every time you order a drink during Happy Hour you roll two dice. If you get certain numbers your drink is free, if you get other numbers it is half price, if you get other numbers it is 25% off and if you get other numbers it is full price. 2 Cents is a small little restaurant tucked away on time Applerouth Lane and is quite good. Not sure I would call it "Fine Dining" but upper end for sure. Good food, great service, quaint garden setting, priced fair and almost all Local Clientele. Well worth checking out.
I had a couple appetizers at Happy Hour which turned out to be my dinner but that was OK with me as my mouth is still a little sore. I came home, got in my sweatpants and tee shirt and I was in for the night. I returned a few work emails, organized some files then parked in front of the TV for the night. That was my Day in Key West.
