I consider myself a bit of a risk taker…but not when it comes to pizza.
I like thin crust pepperoni. Period. To my taste buds, that is the perfect combination, and I don’t mess with it…or bother ordering much else.
But I had a coupon at Domino’s the other day, so I added one of their new specialty chicken dishes to my order, and wow — it was good.
I don’t want to sound like an ad, but the Crispy Bacon and Tomato Chicken was awesome.
So, if you usually wear blinders when it comes to pizza — perhaps you would never order from Domino’s even — consider giving them a shot. I love their thin crust pizza.
And now I even like chicken.

I had to mail two packages at the post office today and noticed a book of Harry Potter stamps behind the counter.
They’re so pretty.
So, of course I bought some.
(I knew you’d want to, too.)

My bucolic beach vacation received a jolt yesterday when I got up close and personal with a stingray.
I was walking in kneedeep water, so I didn’t see my attacker coming. But once I felt the stab, I did get a hand on him to pull him away.
It bled a bit, but hurt a lot. For three or four hours, it was pretty darn intense. Then it calmed down.
And so did I.
For future reference, should you be so unlucky, don’t pee on the wound. And don’t rush to the doctor (although painkillers will be tempting).
Just make sure no barb remains, soak it in hot water, apply antibiotic ointment and leave it uncovered to heal. Elevating it seems to help, too.
And be grateful for friends and family who quickly gather round to help.

See this sign?
It wasn’t on the elevator at my hotel this morning when I got on… when I and another guest got stuck on our way to breakfast.
Luckily, the phone in the elevator worked and the repairman was able to fix the elevator in less than five minutes.
I am proud to report that I remained calm and cheerful during the crisis. The man on the elevator with me, however, was in a huge panic. When the doors finally opened, he ran out and told his friend in the hallway that we had been trapped 15 minutes.
(It was really more like three.)

Thank you, Jim.
When I asked for directions outside the Summit train station this afternoon, you could have simply pointed to the street and gone on your way.
But you smiled and asked where I was headed and, in typical small-town fashion, offered to give me a ride to my hotel because of the intense heat.
I could have put up my big-city blinders and refused, but I could tell — you were just being nice. So I got a ride and a fun, impromptu tour of Summit.
After a delayed, packed train ride, it was an unexpected pleasure.
Thanks again for taking the time.
