Just a few things before I take off for the day.
First, it's National Hoagie Day, which I find slightly odd. Why? Because there's not any national consensus on what to actually call the things. Depending on where you are, you might do better asking for a Sub. Or a Grinder. I'm pretty sure a PoBoy is the same thing, but I could be wrong. How about a Hero? I'm convinced that comes from Gyro. What do you call a big long sandwich where you come from?
Also, hopefully you've noticed my new banner. Go ahead, take a moment to admire it. I don't know how long I'll keep it, but I think it classes up the joint a little. (Side-note to Hijack™ my own thread; when I first typed this paragraph, I wrote "take a moment and admire it". This seems perfectly proper in spoken communication, but seems utterly awkward in print so I dumped the 'and' in favor of 'to'. I'm curious where the 'and' usage came from and whether or not it's a complete sin against grammar...even if everybody does use it in speech.)
Last but not least, when you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up. I'm not talking about Fireman, Princess, Ballerina or Secret Agent. I'm talking about what were some of the things you seriously considered pursuing...and ended up doing whatever it is you're actually doing now instead. In High School, I had a brief period when I was convinced I'd be an Architect. (I didn't realize that a.) there was a lot more to it than drafting and b.) the job requires a whole lot more math than I was interested in learning.) I also wanted to be an actor, but discovered in college that being an actor kind of sucks...whether you're successful or not.
That's my story. What's yours?
