I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Catsup or maple syrup on clam waffles might be the toughest decision in the history of mankind.

Made much easier by deciding to use the clams in a sauce with linguine and some parmesan

On the way home from EL today I proved to my wife that every 100 dashes on the road is one mile. I also showed her that all the north and south streets in the D area if you take the first two digits of the address subtract five and divide by two it gives you the mile road it's near. So 24157 Gratiot would be near 8 1/2 mile. 24-5 divided by two.

I was happy.

That works clear out to Romeo....I always knew it as address-5000 then /2, but same thing.

Utica is interesting. Has some change-of-pace along the way.

Does your math work on Woodward...?

Didn't realize you meant major streets. I was thinking neighborhoods.

Agreed, fuck the Utica Unicorns.

Just had a good laugh to/at myself. Went to the store. Made a purchase with credit card. Early 20's kid bags my items, prints off store receipt, hands me a pen to sign. I hand back to him, not really paying attention. He asks me if I want my receipt. I wave him off with a normal straight face (no smile, no frown) and say nah, I'm good. He looks confused and somewhat stunned. I grab my shit and walk out. As I'm walking out, I see that my receipt is in the bag. I realize he didn't ask me if I wanted my receipt, he said "Have a good rest of your day". And I told him "Nah, I'm good." and waved him off.

LOL.

I always loved, when I worked in retail, the people that would look at you with contempt after you greeted them in any way.

"Hey, how are you doing today?"
"....*look away awkwardly"

One time I said hello to someone, who looked directly at me and walked away from me. I just said, "Wow, okay then..." and he immediately got red-faced and started talking to me.

Happens everywhere, even when I'm out in the neighborhood walking the dog. I'll say hi to someone passing by on my side or across the street, and if I get the brush off I just tell my dog that it was a cat-person.
