Mike is an avid customer review reader. Typically, these opinions provide information beyond that offered by the manufacturer.

Dear Husband,

I would love to understand your logic behind leaving 1.75 Triscuits in the box. Please explain.

I just ate like 14 cloves of garlic on my two slices of pizza, so I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize in advance to:

  • My husband who has to sleep next to me
  • The coworkers who have cubicles within a 45-foot radius of mine
  • Anybody I talk to in the next week
  • The dental hygienist who drew the short straw and has to clean my teeth tomorrow

Debacles so far …

For the most part, Mike and I  felt safe and secure in London. Sure there were a couple of near-misses with oncoming traffic and more than one instinctive clutch of my purse closer to my chest, but overall, nothing to fret over.

I guess our most significant close-call so far would be from a couple days ago when I picked up Mike’s passport off of the bedroom floor and casually tossed it over to him … just barely missing the open window leading to the city street three floors below. Oops.

Recreation of possible doom
