I have a layer of management above me and a couple levels below me and both my boss and I subscribe to the theory of "you know what you're supposed to do, so do it." If you're doing your job well and on time, nobody will bother you. And as a boss, I won't bother you if you're meeting your deadlines and not being an ass.
So now that the Wolves are done, what are you doing with you non-lawn mowing evenings?
We had a similar experience with being the only entrant as well. When my oldest son was 9, he was in the local pitch, hit and run competition and he was the only entrant in his age group. He was not particularly good, but he won! So your theory is absolutely spot on!
On the cavity front, I am the only adult my age (I know, really old) that has never had novocaine. Since childhood, I have only had one cavity and I had it drilled and filled without the needle.
I used to live in Pleasanton so all the talk about Lucky & Albertson's made me wonder, did you have a Unocal76 Orange Ball on your car antenna like everyone else in Northern California in the late 80's & early 90's ?
I'm glad I watched the Friday video tonight instead of waiting until I'm back at work in a week!
I have fun at convenience stores. There were lots of candy bars and chips I wanted to include.
The roast chicken Lays were a limited time deal, hence the best-before date issue - I figure you won't die from them. (not a guarantee) They're my favourite of the chips I sent.
The bottle on the All-Dressed chips isn't oil, it's vinegar. You see those bottles here on diner tables next to ketchup bottles, since vinegar on fries is a common thing here. (as is fries with gravy). I think the All-Dressed chips really are made by blending all the existing chip flavours together and making a new one. They're the swamp water of chips.
If you were a Saskatchewan Roughriders fan, I'd have sent you All-Dressler chips instead. As it is, I considered including Roughriders beef jerky. Next time.
You may be shocked to know I decided to SHOW MY SUPPORT! for Bleep and buy a download of that vinyl-only Broadcast/Two Lone Swordsmen remix thingie ... it was a really painless process and I'm 100% satisfied with the experience, etc. etc.
