This makes me a very happy person, and the course imparted knowledge that will be useful immediately upon returning to the office next week.
FYI - Gwen's a very good instructor and has large amounts of useful knowledge to share with the students...if you can get to one of her talks/courses/etc., I recommend that you do so!
Fortunately for us, the store we bought it from had available fresh turkeys (from another brand) and there was one only a little smaller (12.36 lb. vs. the 14.09 lb. we brought back.) Rather than cause anyone any hassle, we just did it as a straight swap. According to the woman at the customer service desk, this is the second bad Butterball today.
Upside? The store's customer service desk gave zero hassles at all, and one of the managers went back to the case to help us find a replacement quickly.
At least my wife doesn't have to scramble to thaw a fully frozen turkey and get started on things hours late as a result!
Far away in the tropical waters of the Caribbean, two prawns were swimming around in the sea - one called Justin and the other called Christian. The prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that inhabited the area.
Finally one day Justin said to Christian, "I'm fed up with being a prawn, I wish I was a shark, then I wouldn't have any worries about being eaten." A large mysterious cod appeared and said, "Your wish is granted" and lo and behold, Justin turned into a shark. Horrified, Christian immediately swam away, afraid of being eaten by his old mate.
Time passed (as it invariably does) and Justin found life as a shark boring and lonely. All his old mates simply swam away whenever he came close to them. Justin didn't realize that his new menacing appearance was the cause of his sad plight. While swimming alone one day he saw the mysterious cod again and he thought perhaps the mysterious fish could change him back into a prawn.
He approached the cod and begged to be changed back, and, lo and behold, he found himself turned back into a prawn. With tears of joy in his tiny little eyes Justin swam back to his friends and bought them all a cocktail. Looking around the gathering at the reef he realized he couldn't see his old pal.
"Where's Christian?" he asked. "He's at home, still distraught that his best friend changed sides to the enemy & became a shark", came the reply.
Eager to put things right again and end the mutual pain and torture, he set off to Christian's abode. As he opened the coral gate memories came flooding back. He banged on the door and shouted,"It's me, Justin, your old friend, come out and see me again."
Christian replied, "No way man, you'll eat me. You're now a shark, the enemy, and I'll not be tricked into being your dinner." Justin cried back "No, I'm not. That was the old me. I've changed."
"I've found Cod. I'm a Prawn again, Christian!"
For the first time in years, I have scheduled a week out of the office that does NOT have a direct connection with a family catastrophe of some sort.
Even though my wife and I will be going to a scheduled event next week, it is sufficient that I am NOT IN THE OFFICE again until the 24th....
It's good that the generator was letting us have a relatively normal experience at home - as well as the extension cords to the neighbors on either side, keeping their food cold - but it was nice to have a night of sleep last night that did NOT include the racket from the generator....
I wonder how many other people noticed that the current Google Doodle about today's World Cup matches, has the flags for the match between "Bosnia and Herzegovina" and "Islamic Republic of Iran"...showing juxtaposed either side of a clipart Christian cathedral!
Someone didn't pay attention during their Social Awareness seminar....
