Last nights income pattern held to form last night. 5 runs and 32% of the shift's earnings between 7p and 2:00a. 7 fare and 68% of the money came during my solo hours. A little after 3a, the Maui Coast called and had some people wanting to go back to the ship, in Kahului. I still had 3 runs pending and a 4:30a reservation, from the Maui Coast, to OGG and a 5:15a on the Kihei/Wailea border. There was just no physical way I could fit it into the lineup.
OUCH!That would have been another $45 on the meter. As I have redundantly whimpered over the past month or two, times are lean. With all the runs I had during my solo period, I was like a tiger shark on a feeding frenzy and really hated letting a "good one" slip through my fingers.
Oh, don't tell anybody but it is possible to drive the Mokolele Highway around triple digits at certain times of the day?
***Ordered my Christmas dinner. A pre-roasted turkey, big enough to feed 6 adults (or 1 teenage boy), pie, gravy, rolls, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry/orange sauce and some vegetable. Corn, I think. $50. All I have to do is warm everything up. I'll pick it up Christmas Eve about 3p and take it to Judy's place. Then on Christmas Day, we'll nuke, bake or whatever, everything and have a nice dinner.
Judy's cat, Bob, has become addicted to turkey. My cat, Bear, has never had turkey and soon we'll find out his opinion. Knowing him, he'll probably just sniff it and look at me with that "Are you trying to poison me?" look. You cat slaves know what I mean.
