Before we begin today, I want to address a concern some of you have. I realize this link goes live on Monday afternoon in the US, and some (in fact, more than a few) are taking advantage of this. I originally set this up to begin at 4:00 pm on Monday MY TIME (GMT -5 during daylight savings time or CDT, and GMT- 6 during CST), so those who live on the other side of the International Date Line could post on Tuesday, rather than Wednesday. This 24 hour cycle seems to get in the way, and I have no idea what to do about it.
Do we allow T Tuesday to go live on Monday afternoon in the US as usual?
Do we change to midnight MY TIME, where several time zones would be able to still participate on Monday (Mountain, Pacific, Hawaii, Midway Island, etc)?
Do we go by 0 GMT (Zero Greenwich Mean Time), which is the same as British Daylight Time and midnight MY TIME?
Please let me know your thoughts on this and I will do whatever the majority chooses.
Now let's go to T.
Recently, my friend Sally and I went out to eat. But first, we stopped by Best Buy because she wanted to buy a washing machine.
She had read many reviews about this specific machine. All the reviews that were negative said the owner couldn't reach the bottom of the machine. Sally wanted to check for herself. When I caught up to her, I found her making sure she could reach the bottom of the machine.
It was obvious she could reach it, but since I'm so short, even standing on my toes, then climbing onto the side of the machine, I would NEVER be able to use such a machine.
The sales lady was so nice, and Sally ordered one of the machines. I told her never to expect me to help with her laundry (grin). After Best Buy, Sally wanted to go to Merle's,
another pub and restaurant.
I like their menus which look like old newspapers.
I decided on the cheese enchilada,
and I realized why Sally wanted to come here. After spending all that money on the washer, I guess she needed a beer in case she felt buyers remorse.
Of course, I had water, but it was also about that time I realized she was wearing a Tee she had picked up at Strataca, one of the museums she, Kathy, and I visited during Smithsonian Day last September.
What drink related stories do you have to share this second week in June? Did you have a drink in a mug, cup, teapot, or glass? Was your drink represented by art, a scrapbook page, a book, or a movie? Regardless, please share your direct link and we'll be by to visit.
