Well, let's see.

I had myself a meeting this morning, and I've somehow wound up tethered to a two-way radio, and I still haven't managed to make any further progress on putting up all my homey photos and pictures, nor with degreasing the office furnishings. I don't really care much for other people's skin-leavings, but especially not if they're of the enduringly sticky kind. I've got to remember to bring in some 409 tomorrow.

As for what I'm doing, some differences include no more Monday staff meetings, and the wearing of a tie is optional, and not at all encouraged. I like the first one, but twenty years of tie-wearing is a bit more of a hard habit to break. I don't particularly like wearing a tie, but one of my Rules of Polite Society is that people who wear ties get to do bad things normal people wouldn't be able to get away with. Like ending a sentence with a preposition, or using "like" instead of "such as." It's unfair, yes, but it does have its advantages. Anyway, I'm wearing the tie for a while until I decide what I can and can't get away with. Or with what I can get away.

ANYway, soup of the day is Cajun 15 bean soup with bits of smoked sausage and ham.

That is all.

Two-way radio? That sounds like trouble. I try to stay away from company-furnished radios, cell phones, Blackberrys, etc. But, I do like Caller ID.

Wow, learn sompin new everyday! I know red beans, lima and white but us CoonA**es got 12 more beans? I'm impressed. I do hope a good cornbread was served too.

PS: & sweet tea is a must.

Two-way IS trouble, Bill. Means I can be found, which makes it harder to go hide in the restroom.

And Tony, I'm not sure what all other sorts of beans there were, but each and every one was very tasty, and yes, there was cornbread, too.

(I had to drink a Diet Coke since I didn't have any sweet tea, though.)

By the way, here's the place you can get such things.

So which poor schmuck has to sit there and make sure there's only 15 beans in every serving?

Posted by: skinnydan at August 22, 2007 08:13 PM

Actually, they have one schmuck per type of bean. Goes much faster that way.

I guess Terry can't come out and play?

Posted by: BillW at August 28, 2007 12:35 PM

Not hardly--I think I might get a few minutes to play, and then something else comes along to ruin playtime.

However, lunch today is a plate full of chili-and-cheese nachos.

Glad to see you're able to at least peek through the front porch window! Also glad you mentioned nachos! Maybe I'll suggest that for supper tonight.

I'm beginning to regret my selection. ::urph::

Seven days without a new PossumPost makes one week.

There's a new one, but it's pretty weak.
