06.08.18: Solo – Toys R Us

Friday, 8 June 2018
Colorado Springs, Colorado

Weather: Hot, sunny, and clear skies – High of 98 degrees fahrenheit, low of 55 degrees. Sweltering.

A Hot, sunny, clear awaited the delivery team. It was a sweltering day. Another day, another dollar … Sir Oisin stated, working the grind was on schedule for the day. He was a little down though as he got news that he didn’t make the deadline for Battlemoor. It sucks being poor he felt, living paycheck to paycheck and not having enough to pre-pay fees and figuring out his work schedule. So he misses many good festivals he could be vending. He was really looking forward to Battlemoor, but apparently they are putting their foot down on deadlines and pre-registration. He began planning out Northern Realms War and the trip plans to go to South Dakota next week.
Most of the morning, Prince Cian played with Princess Aine and the Princes Xavier, Theron, and Kian. He really loves them, missed them while he was at his mom’s, and doesn’t really want to do anything else but play with them. Oisin made up French toast for Cian, and gave some to Aine and Kian while Lord Jesse ran to Mountain Mamma’s to get groceries for breakfast. Oisin gave the Prince his bath and they got ready for the day. Short day of deliveries, only 6 hours on the calendar.

Shift 1: Company 1: 11 am – 1 pm:

At 11:12 am they headed to their first delivery at Jack Quinn’s Irish Pub and Restaurant. Delivery went smoothly although parking was a nightmare. There was another delivery awaiting pickup, Oisin was surprised it wasn’t assigned to them. However, second delivery was a call back to Jack Quinn’s at 11:42 am which was the delivery in question. Would of made more sense for him to pick them up at the same time but the delivery system software for some reason didn’t connect the dots. At 11:52 am – they ran back to downtown to do a pickup at Bingo Burger, delivering on the far end of town. They grabbed lunch at Jack in the Box – getting burgers and fries for lunch. They were then called around 12:28 pm to La Caretta for a pickup and delivery.

For their break from 1 pm – 4 pm, they drove over to Tinseltown to use their Movie Pass seeing Solo: A Star Wars Movie. This time the Prince was excited for the movies. They grabbed a large popcorn and drink with their Cinemark Rewards Points, and settled in. The Prince was quiet, but restless, and wanted a blanket for the movies. Oisin made note. The movie was long, but when receiving a 4’ish delivery request, they had another 20 minutes to await for it to get ready and it was less than a mile away so were able to finish the movie with time to spare to get a drink from Circle K on the way. It was so hot, they were constantly drinking fluids all day. Lady Etain called the Prince while they were in the movies, so they missed her call. They called her after the movie, but no luck reaching her and she didn’t call back at the designated 7-8 pm call window, so the Prince didn’t get to talk with her.

Shift 2: Company 1 – 4 pm – 6 pm:

At 4:12 pm they ran over to Romano’s Macaroni Grill which was delivered a bit of a distance away. Then they didn’t have another delivery request for almost a half hour, so played at a park and took a short hike. At 5:02 pm they were off to Jersy Mike’s Subs for a quick delivery with more time to spare for playground fun. At 5:32 pm they went Texas Tbone finishing up the shift.

Shift 3: Company 1 – 6 pm – 8 pm:

At 6:10 pm they drove over to Which Wich and had another delivery at 6:50 pm from Il Vicino Wood Oven Pizza doing “pizza delivery”. At 7:24 pm their last delivery was at P.F. Chang’s . The Prince napped through most of the deliveries for this shift, and since most were house and/or drive-thru deliveries – he got to sleep straight through uninterrupted.

That Evening after work at 8 pm they went to Toys R’ Us for the 50-60% closing sale. The Prince was so excited. Prince Cian used his weekly $3 allowance and $15 share of delivery fees to buy two RobLox toys. He came close to getting zombie nerf guns that he really wanted, but was a little shy. Even though dad offered to pay the difference, he chose the two RobLox cars (sheriff car and sheriff, girl adventurer and her jeep). He is quite obsessed with this RobLox game player/host narrating MineCraft adventures.

They drove home and dad cooked up some pizza and ramen noodle soup for dinner. They settled down to reading a book, playing with the RobLox toys, and both passed out early to bed.
