I went to visit a friend in Bloomsburg, PA (which, weirdly, is the only actual town in PA), and had a weird sub.
If I didn't have this pesky food allergy, the sub would have contained cheese steak, cold cuts, pepperoni, chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, provolone, french fries, and onion rings. I had it without the chicken fingers and cheesey bits, and it was AMAZING. So much food.
Then we went and explored some of the flood zone. The children's playground was still partially underwater, and the entire park was covered in mud from the river. Thankfully, most of the people who lived nearby were evacuated in time.
I also met a very strange dude, who introduces himself as Crazy Dave (I think that was his name). When he met me, the first thing he said to me was "Can you please draw on me?" He handed me a pack of markers, and told me to draw whatever I wanted on his arm. Then I drew a peace sign and a heart on his face, as per request, with strength and courage written over them. He told me about how he was a lion, and that those things were characteristics of lions. My friend later told me that he doesn't have a formal job, but is instead the town handyman. He goes around and fixes things or does work in exchange for jewelry, money, food, shelter, and tobacco. During the flood, he helped families clear their basements and first floors. After the flood, he helped cut out ruined carpeting, carry out destroyed objects, remove mud from basements and first floors, etc. For all of that, he didn't ask for any money or anything. Just went to homes and asked "How can I help you?" He was a sweet guy. He was a little upset that the hookah bar made him wear his shirt and shoes inside... they didn't make him at first, but then the health and safety people made them enforce "no shirt no shoes no service," so he has to wear clothes.
In our hookah, my friend and I had Pirate's Cove shisha, which was supposedly blue slushie flavored. It tasted like lime soda. One of the owners made an amazing cafe americano for me, which I drank with much gusto. She also makes butterbeer, but it's made with actual butter, so danger no can has.
The owners came over and started talking to me, got to know me a little and told me all about their business. They were quite impressed by my Muggle t-shirt. They told me that they were looking for other things to sell, specifically crafted items. If anyone can recall, many years ago I used to make soaps and such. I told them I liked making coffee soap, and they got quite excited.
So now, I'm going to sell my soaps (some scents based off of their shisha flavors, some coffee soaps, a signature scent for the hookah bar, and a line of Harry Potter soaps) and some bubble bath/shower gel (Harry Potter themed, heheheh) in a hookah bar/coffee shop with a large and loyal customer base. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
And I aced a history test this morning. Also WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
