Five Things Recently Learned

♠ There will always be a root beer in the fridge when I want one, because my kids are all about the caffeine and will unfailingly choose Coca-Cola.

♠ Most of the time it takes for an international package to reach its destination is spent just trying to get out of the United States. (Sorry Dee.)

♠ Our local pizza joint has only a single non-pork meat topping: Hamburger. You’d think they could do better. For crying out loud, even crappy Pizza Hut offers steak!

♠ Just because a lot of people look at a particular product on any given day, doesn’t mean you’ll see an increase in sales of that item.*

♠ The new car is getting about 25mpg, which isn’t bad considering it’s been all city driving (with hills).

*I realize the example screenshot is from way back in January. I just didn't become aware of it until today.

    LOL How many homeland security package inspectors does it take to deliver stuff? Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke.

    Gee, I feel overpriviledged now. My pizza place has lots of meat toppings, you can even get Sliced Italian Beef, goes excellent with Pepperoni, the wife's favorite combo.

    Congratulation on the new car mileage!Especially if it's mostly in-town.

    Does pork give you heart burn as well? I think the old testament might have been on to something there. I love root beer; can I have one?

    And I've learned that FedEx don't work weekends in this country (apparently)… so the package sits taunting me somewhere Up North. Darn them to heck!

    I guess you could say that I have a plethora of meat choices? I just love that word, plethora. That was used in a western movie once. Black Hat asks his Evil #1 Henchman (in regards to his birthday presents) if he has a plethora of presents. The henchman thinks it over and answers. The Black Hat asks him if he knows what a plethora is to which he replies no. the Black Hat shoots him. Synapses firing at less than optimum today…

  7. Our local pizza joint has only a single non-pork meat topping: HamburgerWHAT!!! No chicken? the other white meat.

  8. Kirk says:

    "WHAT!!! No chicken?"I know they have it, because it comes on a couple different "specialty" pizzas, but I can't select it as an individual topping when I order a custom pizza. Grrrrr.Time to change pizza vendors.
