I got caught up in the moment, I guess. I participated in the chili cook-off madness. My favorite chili of the day turned out to be an all-natural organic vegan chili. It had curry in it. Very different and delicious.

I now know exactly what it’s like to be a cross between the Hindenburg and a skunk.
On the bright side, I won a door prize. A Fellows™ “Bulldog” shredder. Last night I hooked it up and terrorized every piece of paper that had ever caused me grief. “Aha! YOU! YOU GAVE ME A PAPER CUT! Mwahahahaha! Into the shredder with you! INTO ZEE SHREDDER! Mwa-hahahahahahaha!”
Knock on the door. Instant silence in my room. “Dad, are you being an evil mad scientist again?” comes a little voice.
“Oh, okay. Just making sure.”
My eyes roam around the room for another doomed piece of paper…
