It's been a tough week for me, Carl. I kept forgetting to turn
on the podcast thing and missed a whole bunch of stuff. So, I
forced the Farkas Family (Tabby and Joe) and Andrew to talk about
toilet paper a second time. It's not as good as the first time but
you'll get the gist of it. We talk about how useless your butt is
for determining softness.
There should be a standard for how much toilet paper a person
uses. Plus, Joe confesses that he STANDS UP when he wipes. You must
hear it to believe it! (Again, it seems that whenever Tabby
is on the podcast we talk about stuff like this.
There are stories of awkward walking and hugs too.
Then I go to dinner with "Mrs. John". Lori and I talk about
the weather. I'm worried about trees. She doubts me. Dinner goes

I've got to meet with Peter Heck to discuss our upcoming
conference. I need to drive across town through the cold
rain. Will I make it?
I made it. Then I record some of the conversation with
Pete but not all of it because he kind of whines and makes fun of
me. Then I use a word that I apparently don't know the

thing that happens when Peter Heck talks. I don't know East
from West. I don't understand timezones. And I'm the one who's
planning our road trip. Pete makes plans to go to Cone
Palace. It's closer than the Sea of Tranquility. We expose the scam
that is 'snow cones'.
Finally, we're on the road to the 414 conference with the
Peaches. Pete is in the back seat griping. I'm driving Mandy's Jeep
which is a stick-shift. Everyone (except the Google nav voice) is
nervous. Peaches can't tell her right from left. Eventually, we
discuss the drainage council. We hate mini-vans but
eventually we all get one.
Mercifully, Pete puts his headphones in and begins ignoring
