Mention strawberries to me and I will immediately think of that pretty red fruit I don't much like, unless of course it is blended with lots of ice and tequila. But, when a local paper had a 50% off coupon for Darryl Strawberry's Grill in Douglaston, I bought one right away. My husband loves their burgers, they make a mean one with veggies and, if you get there during happy hour, beers are only $2.00 a piece.
I am ashamed to admit that I know as much about baseball as Bloomberg and Black know about education, but that didn't stop me from talking to the reporter who asked me what I would do if I could buy the Mets. Without hesitation, I said, "I would give them to Bloomberg so he could fix them like he fixed the schools in New York. since he is an expert on everything." I got my Black and Bloomberg dig out! I happened to be wearing my Packemin union sweatshirt at the time. The guy loved my answer and told me I would be on the air. Unfortunately I don't get the cable station it will appear on but he promised to send me a link when it is up online. I'll post it on the private blog.
(Strawberry was supposed to make an appearance but we didn't hang around. I wait for no man!)
It's been a long week that ended with dinner in a very noisy bar but this one little segment made the week for me.
