Day 12

How will it end?

 

Day 8

Written by Christopher Null on January 16th, 2017

Now it gets tense. The tree has officially been passed over for two consecutive garbage day pickups, and now the owner has to make a decision: Hope the garbage company takes it, wait for a good Samaritan to do the job, or actually deal with it. Meanwhile, it’s starting to turn fairly brown. We’ll be watching!

 

Day 6

Written by Christopher Null on January 14th, 2017

A whole row of trees (including the one I’d had my eye on) abruptly vanished this afternoon. Good news: A tree around the corner is still lingering, and will become our new specimen.

Scraggly on the base but largely intact — and more importantly, taking up a parking space.

 

Day 3

Written by Christopher Null on January 11th, 2017

The trashcans are gone, but the tree remains. A little worse for wear due to the heavy rain and wind, but still hanging in there.

 

‘Tis the Season

Written by Christopher Null on January 9th, 2017

Neighbors missed the memo that last week was Christmas tree pickup, and the trash company makes zero exceptions.

The battle of wills starts today.

 

Happy New Year!

Everything you ever wanted to know about RC Cola (and why it never became popular).

Still my favorite soda… though I don’t even drink Coke any more…

My Fast Food Mashup: The Chick-N-Out

Written by Christopher Null on March 5th, 2016

It came to me in a dream. What if you took a Chick-Fil-A sandwich and an In-N-Out burger and put them together?

Today I made that dream a reality, taking one In-N-Out cheeseburger (animal style) and one Chick-Fil-A sandwich (extra pickles) and slapping them together. (Drop the bottom bun of the In-N-Out and the top bun of the Chick-Fil-A. Chicken goes on the bottom of the combined sandwich.)

Results: Incredibly delicious and probably extremely healthy, too. The Chick-N-Out (get it?) is one for the ages!

Me: Hey kids, look, a flock of cows!

Zoe (13): Brown cows!

Me: Uh, yeah, a flock of cows!

Zoe: Yeah, brown cows!

Beckett (9): It’s not flock.

Me: Yeah, flock of cows!

Beckett: Flock is for birds.

Me (frustrated): Yeah, flock of cows!

Beckett (rolls eyes): Never mind.
