"and you are? hmmm? ok..."
That is what i was told last night at the training i went to. I went to a training about the effects that AIDS/HIV meds have on individuals. i normally don't go to trainings that are in the evening and set up in a restaurant because usually only doctors and nurses attend...i do not like working with doctors!!!! some are ok but for the most part they think they are the rulers of the world!! anyway, the only reason i went was because my supervisor asked me to go. "damn, do i have to go?!?!" So i really didn't have a choice. So i walk to the restuarant, Mia Francesca on Clark, and the lady at the door asks me "your name and where are you from?" i answer "sonrisa morena and i'm from the clinic" "are you a nurse or a doctor?" "neither, i'm a social worker" her response as she looks me up and down was "hmmm? i guess that's ok, you can have a sit wherever you'd like" pinche bruja!! i thought to myself. Soon after i sat down a co-worker comes and sits next to me and asks me "what is up with that lady?!?!" She apparently treated him the same way and to be honest with you i felt a little relieved because when i was sitting down i was thinking "pinche bruja i bet if i were white you wouldn't have reacted that way!!!" but when brian told me he got the same reaction i felt better...is that mean? anyway, the training was awsome!!! dr. b, whom is one of the cool doctors i like, gave the training. but lets talk about the food!!! holy crap!!! we had appetizers, brochetta (?) calamari and little pizza thingies. Then came the salads, and then the pastas..stuffed spinach ravioli and some other kind of pasta that was soo yummy. AND then the main course, talapia in lemon sauce, chicken in some kind of yummy sauce and fillet mignon(?) DAMN it was good. our wine glasses kept getting refilled by the wonderful waiters. Oh yeah we also got dessert, tarramizo. YUMMY!!!! it was good stuff. by the end of the training my co-worker and i were so full and buzzing it wasn't even funny!! We left thinking "we had such a good dinner for FREE!!" We headed out to southport to go bar hopping. if you haven't been bar hopping on southport, i really recommended. i had so much fun. some guy, i think his name was eric, started talking to me...that was nice. i think that's why i had fun because i was getting hit on..hey who doesn't like the attention. i got home at 2:30 in the morning and i so did not want to come to work today!! but i have responsibility and here i am.
