Four new and previously unattempted things during the last week:
- Planted a tree. An oak tree for Elmo in the sideyard. Yeah, it’s a slow-growing tree, but we’re not in a hurry.
- Used Metaxa in cooking. Mixes very well with a creamy chantarelle stew.
- Had liquid nitrogen applied on my skin. Touch receptors tune out immediately, so I didn’t experience as much cold as I expected.
- Had a shopping cart hijacked in a grocery store. And returned ten minutes later after the accidental theft was publicized over PA. Serious props to the guy for returning it, since he could have easily disposed of it in a dark corner of the shop.
