It was a pretty good day yesterday. Along with doing work that confuses and frustrates me, I went to Kroger to pick up a few necessities, and then joined Bonnie and her hubby at Red’s Beer Garden for trivia.
Anxious times preceded trivia as I watched the Amazon delivery guy (UPS) drive blocks away from the ITP Estate with packages that weren’t due to arrive until today. Side Note: it seems as if all of my orders for the past two days will be arriving ahead of schedule. 🤷🏻♂️ Thankfully we had enough time to wait for the delivery before heading to Red’s.
With only the three of us on our team, and being up against twenty other teams, I wasn’t expecting much. But then the first round of questions was incredibly easy. The second round was going swimmingly until I confidently put the highest wager on an incorrect answer. 🤦🏻♂️ Certainly we were doomed. To our surprise after the final question we ended in a tie for third place, and had a one-question playoff.
In miles, what is the distance from Atlanta to Seattle?
You know Bonnie’s hubby is a pilot, right? 👍🏼 He went into some sort of trance, spewing the names of planes and how far they can travel as I looked on cluelessly, and then his answer of 2600 miles was a mere 39 miles off from the answer Google provided! Third place and the $20 Red’s gift certificate was ours! 🥳🥳🥳
On an unseasonably cool morning I’ve been up and at’em since 5:00am, using the City’s inability to pick up garbage in a timely manner to my advantage. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure… A house a few blocks from mine is being cleaned out and on there curb was an assortment of plastic bins that might prove useful in WLF. Of course the only other person I saw at 5:15am was an older women outside that house who looked at me askance when I started gathering the bins. There were actually more bins than I could carry, and I don’t want to dig into their trash again, so the City can now reap the spoils of my laziness.
Once I am done with this blog, finish eating breakfast, and the sun comes up, I am going to go out to WLF and do a little choring, including hosing out my new mismatched bin collection. And then, worky-work.
Happy Hump Day, yous guys. Hope you are remaining healthy.
