Maybe he was looking for something else altogether.

My wife and I returned our census, but a guy stopped by anyway. We asked why, thinking our form wasn’t received. “No,” he told us, “I don’t know if we got it or not.” Apparently they personally visit every apartment within a certain distance of a college no matter what.

I have got to stop sticking my feet in my mouth – my shoe bill is killing me!
Sorry Mr. Sixty. I hope you’ll accept my apologies and believe that I will use this as a learning experience.
Now I most definitely need some medicated doughnuts!

Sixty is hardly a drive-by commenter. He’s been a faithful reader and a writer of carefully selected comments going way back in this blog.

They add a little spice to the blog. Or stir up the pot as some might say.
Now, as for the foil advice, Blog Guy – have you purchased a pallet of Reynolds Aluminum Foil yet? You might need to double layer your apartment since it sounds as if these census people are persistent! 😉

I’ve got a tight September 1 deadline for the summer exhibition, and it’s taking up all my time.

I mean, Robert having new glasses could be counterproductive, I agree, but then again, that might mean he starts putting the right sprinkles to the medidoughnuts again!! Now, bring them on!!
