I spent the majority of today out on the road doing field calls for work. I was all over Niagara – St. Catharines, Welland, Port Colborne, St. Ann’s, Grimsby and Vineland. As usual, I had to make several piddidle stops during my travels. I typically stop at Tim Hortons, since there is one every 100 metres in the Niagara Region. I feel bad about using their facilities without buying something, so I usually get a maple dip donut. I’m not a big donut-person, so I end up eating the maple dip topping, and bring the plain donut leftovers home for composting. Since I stopped twice today, I decided to bring home a “smiley” cookie for Chuck. The Smile cookie: “The entire proceeds from the sales of these delicious, chocolate chunk Smile Cookies are donated to local charities, hospitals and community programs from coast to coast.” I put the cookie in the same bag as my maple dip donut – big mistake. The two clashed in their cocoon sack, producing a smiley cookie demonic spawn. When I got home, the scene was horrifying. I am going to post a picture of the outcome. If you have young children in the room, I strongly suggest you ask them to leave:
I was able to incapacitate the mutant, before surgically separating the two entities. Once done, they were quickly consumed for the sake of mankind. (yummy!)
The day actually went quite well, despite the above mentioned atrocity. I was able to do all of my field calls (about eight) and get back home around my normal quitting time.
Symptoms for today: Feeling better than I’ve felt all month. That icky sinus/cold thing is finally out of my system and my energy is coming back, although rather slowly. I’m still having bad headaches every day.
