A Day In the Work Life

During the workday a very dear friend (who happens to also be a coworker) and I have great conversation as we go about our days of ridding the world of all injustices, one internal customer at a time. We talk about everything under the sun. Humor is always involved, and we usually learn a few things along the way too.
Sharing an excerpt of todays conversation, you might like dill pickles and want to try these!

B: Say, have you tried these: 

T: uh, no and want!

B:: Quite tasty, at least the dill spears, haven't tried the other. And the bonus is that the jars are actually really pretty. I kept mine out on the counter for a bit before I actually got into them and had to refrigerate.

T: I rather like the packaging myself, it's very quaint

B: Those are carrots and red bell peppers at the bottom. Possibly the picked peppers that Peter Piper picked. (Yes, had to go there.)

B: dang it, pickLed

B: Can't even type out a dang nursery rhyme correctly.

T: ha!
T: did he really pick a peck of pickled peppers? how much is in a peck?

B: I could have told you that at one point in my life. Things have decayed since.

T: A peck equals 8 dry quarts. A bushel is 8 dry gallons (4pecks).

T: thank you google

T: he did some serious pickin of pecks there

B: So did I, back in the day. Although I was doing something else entirely.

T: mmm hmmm

T: you know, curds and whey is really just cottage cheese

T: but I guess little miss muffet sat on her tuffet eating her cottage cheese sort of takes away from it all

B:: lol

T: but they could have said along came a spider who sat down beside her to give her a little squeeze, I'm just sayin  

See you soon,


PS Dill pickles could be eaten for breakfast at Tiffanys. So could curds and whey, but I prefer watermelon!

I meant to comment on the last post that I wasn't sure what I thought of that big conglomerate making you change your absolute-perfection twitter handle. I adopted it immediately though, and I am officially on board with apiphanyone.

And now I shall comment on the pickles which makes me think of an Andy Griffith episode and a fantastically adorable scene from The Little Rascals and all good, nostalgic things which shall now include the obviously delightful friendship you have there. :)

I LOVE Andy Griffith, AND The Little Rascals!
On the other, I was hoping that transition would be seamless and people would understand, I actually got to know the folks at APIphany and they are truly great people, so I decided to relinquish the id of my own accord. They didnt pressure or anything, but if they HAD, I wouldn't have made the change. =)
