Every once in a while a blog post writes itself.
Even while the actual event was occurring, despite the fact that it really should have occupied 100% of my attention to preserve both my safety and my sanity, part of my brain was saying, "BEST BLOG POST EVER!!!". I did, if I may say so myself, a remarkable job of committing this event to memory. I think you'll agree. And you'll certainly appreciate the pithy turns of phrase that pepper the retelling while also providing the appropriately condescending editorialization.
Before I began the dump from brain to Blogger, however, I treated myself to a quick jaunt through my blogging bookmarks, and what did I find? I found that Velvet Sacks had stumbled across a meme! And she tagged me*!
So, rather than write the BEST BLOG POST EVER, I'll respond to this meme request. Perhaps some other day, if the spirit moves me, I'll tell the story I was going to tell today. Maybe not. Regardless, these memes are both important and fascinating.

Four Friends that have been tagged that I think will respond:
No way! The last time I did this, someone took me off their list of links. If you want to respond to this meme, I hereby empower you! Go be powerful!
Anyway, that's all I've got for today! Heck, that meme was so fun, I can't even remember what I was thinking before I started it. Thanks, Velvet Sacks!
(*Update: As it turns out, ha ha, Velvet Sacks did not actually tag me for this meme. My bad.)
