Once again I am too boring for words. Sammy is trying to entertain me but it is a huge job.
Both my guys had very good trips last week. Punkin Head had a good interview and dinner with his cousin and her husband. She is going to Brandeis for a slightly similar career and they enjoyed comparing notes.
Big Daddy flew home Friday with a couple of baffling moments. First he was accused of having venereals as they checked his carry on bags. He thought they were searching for antibiotics, what else would you look for when venereal diseases are in question. No, they were searching for vernier calipers-about 4 inches long that he has had for over 15 years. They took his "venereals" and gave him a receipt. Fuckers. He got them in Japan in the 90's. Now I am wondering where my verniers are, I have not seen them since I quit my job.
Then BD discovered the difference between Delta and American Airlines. AA is very friendly and informative. When his flight was delayed about 15 minutes the flight attendant went on the PA system to explain that the slight delay was because someone noticed oil on the cement below the engine. In order to put their minds at ease she informed them it would be a short delay, just long enough to wipe up the oil.
Big Daddy scrubbed and shimmied all my windows and now I can see out of every one of them perfectly. I can see the rain.
