1.) You are an adult. You don't need cookies on a 2-hr flight
2.) If you are fortunate enough to be paying hundreds of dollars to fly on a chair through the air. A.) Congrats. B.) You are more than capable to buy cookies or whatever snack you want from the shops before you board for a couple bucks.

Seats? I get. But cookies? It's like going to a Hamilton and being like "I love Hamilton. They have the best programs" It's not even in the top 25 things I would care about on a plane.


Yep, you're definitely irrational.

I don’t like pickles either but I love pickled things.

I’ve started “canning” and making spicy dilly beans. I put that in quotes because I don’t traditionally can but instead refrigerate and wait 3-7 days to eat them. So good

So ankle fracture has had amazing progress.

After one week: **** throbbing pain anytime it wasn't elevated and iced.
Two weeks: ok while elevated still swollen as ****.
Three weeks: cleared to put weight on it, start shuffling around, still using crutches mostly.
Four weeks: can walk without a limp when stretched and warm, kinda had to learn to walk again. Weird.

Did a bit of practice last night while at my 6 year old's basketball training session. Can move fairly regularly at about 30% speed around the court in a very strong ankle brace. Feeling optimistic about making it back in a few weeks in time for playoffs. :)

While we're on the topic I had fried chicken last night at this place "Barrel" and it was phenomenal. Juicy, flavorful, and a perfect crisp.

Like some who tour the nation’s civil war battlefields, I’d like to tour the nation’s best fried chicken restaurants.

I leave for Key West today for my soon-to-be brother in-law’s bachelor patty and a couple things:

1. These destination bachelor/bachelorette parties are getting out of control. I’ve already spent over $1,000 on airfare and AirBnB. I did a cabin in northern WI and the entire long weekend was less than $300.

2. My fiancé is allergic to shell fish and it’s Lobsterfest down there. I’m going to take advantage and eat my weight in every kind of shellfish.

I have lucked out that 90+% of the ones I've gone to have had cost in mind and the few destination ones that didn't were in our 20s so everyone crammed into some sort of rental/AirBnB so it wasn't too crazy of cost...but I hear you.

Key West also is unique in that it is expensive as hell. Are you driving from Miami or flying directly in? I've actually never been but I've been in Southern Florida enough that every time I say, "hey, maybe we could do Key West for a...[looks at hotel prices]...nevermind."

Going to Denver in 2 weekends for a bachelor party, and yeah, I agree. We're at $1k without food and drinks. Gonna be a blast, but damn, we could have had a ton of fun around here too.

Thanks, I enjoyed watch the three videos on copying KFC.

Personally I've always liked KFC original. It's greasy as **** but the chicken is usually very moist and flavorful.

I did Key West and stayed at an AirBnB maybe 45 minutes south in Ramrod Key. It was solid. Lack of great beaches hurt the experience, but you can throw a rock in any direction and get ridiculously good food. Make sure you have grouper at least three times from various spots.

Random vent:

I've gotten several texts/emails in the last few days (and like a million in my lifetime) with the sentences of, "___ and i's favorite ____" and "do you want to come with ____ and i?"

This is the weirdest thing in the English language to me and I don't know why it is common practice and probably taught and used by a good percentage of teachers. Oh, I'm also a big Oxford comma guy.

I'm sure I've made several grammatical errors in this post or recent posts so please fire away at those.

My niece and her 10 friends just got back from her bachelorette party in Miami Beach last Sunday. I have no idea what they spent, but it sure sounded like a lot. Staying on South Beach, booze cruises (plural), etc. They had a great time.

And then she canceled the wedding THE NEXT DAY.

So one of two things happened:

1. The marriage was never gonna happen but she wanted to have fun.

2. A hookup or at least 2nd thoughts about signing the freedom away occurred on this trip.
