Monday August, 1st 2011 - Book 81 - My only excuse for this production scene is, well...something like "absence makes the heart grow fonder." Or, "making books alone in the woods makes one lusty." In any case, before I left Wallowa County on my last visit to Emily, I spied a Kotex box that was proportionally appropriate for bookmaking...and decided to bring it along. The ad on the box reads: "Take the Panty Challenge." Assuming that Kotex wasn't sexist and only marketing women, I took the ad personally and did what I could do "Take the Panty Challenge" as a male consumer. I mean, really, how often do we guys have to suck our manliness up, do some gender bending, and take the list and do some shopping? Answer: ALL THE TIME. Women always whine about all the ways men try to slot them into a category, but nobody talks about all the ways men are told to be men, be manly, and never, ever, be caught buying pads for your girlfriend. Ha! To hell with that nonsense.
* This scene also includes a good run-down on my 2nd day of mining.
