So we also had our first mid flight recruitment. Funny because we have been trying to get this guy to roll out with us like since, FOREVER! He just happened to be one beer stop worth of time behind us and when we stopped (for the beer stop) there he was like a vision. (Pictured at right in a photo from The Snowpocalypse.)
He was hauling the long way to Lake City and we cold drafted him off the street. Which made for an interesting few miles to follow as this guy is a bag of hammers drilled off the front. Seriously, he is fast. (He is also my favorite service department manager of all time.) Everyone hates him for being so in shape. They hated me for trying to keep up. He hated me for hating him for keeping up and hating them for hating me for keeping up with him. (Huh?)
Anyhow he was on a mission that didn't involve booze until later so we got latered and drank a beer without him at the top of the first hill.
We gave him a tee- shirt (First Edition Blaise Curry Reprint).
He told me today he wore it to bed that night.
I thought that was about the nicest thing I had ever heard.
BunnyHawking makes me happy that it makes people happy.
