Late Night Snack Foods

What is your favorite late night snack? You know, the nights when you should be heading to bed, but you have a craving for something to eat and just want a quick snack so you can fall asleep easier?

Some people crave sweets just before bed. I remember my dad used want to bowl of ice cream every night while he watched the late night news. My little brother has that same habit. I know he loves ice cream and is very particular about the brand of the ice cream and the flavor that he wants. Most of the time he wants Breyer’s Ice Cream, Vanilla Bean, and then he pours a couple of squirts of Hershey’s chocolate syrup over the top.

I don’t crave sweets – hardly ever. I’m just not a dessert person. I like salty stuff – and don’t ask me why. I have no idea. I would want a small bag of chips or a handful of salted nuts for a snack. Sometimes, I like a cold slice of leftover pizza – but not often. In fact, most of the time I don’t keep leftover pizza around. To me it does not taste as good after the pizza sits in the refrigerator for a day or two. I try to order just enough pizza to feed me or me and a guest, and not go overboard with too much pizza. If there is any leftover, sometimes I throw it out and every once in a while I will put a couple slices into a Ziploc freezer bag and stick it in the freezer.

I used to eat popcorn at night, mostly because it was fast and easy and I though it was a little healthier than other snacks. But I found out that the hard kernels in a handful of popcorn can cause my teeth to crack and I don’t need that kinda of trouble. So I’ve given up on popcorn and sticking with a small bowl of tortilla or potato chips and some salsa or guacamole.

Too Fucking Hot to Work

Last night I had to work late. I didn’t expect it, but it was a minor crisis and I don’t mind pitching in. A bunch of us had to stay late and go through tons of papers and old files. I don’t want to say why, but let’s just say that it was really important to find those files.

So the boss ordered pizza for everyone so we didn’t have to leave the building and go get something to eat. That was nice – I don’t eat much pizza but I was hungry and getting fucking tired and wanted to get it done so we could go the fuck home.

So here we are after 8:00 and we are still humping out way through all these boxes of papers and it starts getting hot in the office. I mean, it is summer and all, but we are in a high rise office building with air conditioning. Its not supposed to get hot in there.

So, we all started noticing how hot it was getting and then someone realized that the A/C was not working. So, who are you going to call at 8:00 at night about the A/c? Not our landlord, that’s for damn sure. We flipped switches on and off and adjusted the thermostat by poking a coat hanger wire through the plastic cage they have the A/C control locked up behind. But still nothing. So after a half hour of that bull shit I was getting sweaty and gave up.

I left and the boss was a little mad but I can’t be all sweaty and staying to work until midnight or anything – I was just being nice and helping out. It’s not like I get paid overtime money or anything because I’m on salary and it wasn’t even my job to deal with these papers. I just hope the fucking air conditioning is working today.
