Got invited to an open mic bar once. You put your name on a list along with your instrument and every couple of songs they'd rotate the lineup. Me and another dude get called up to play guitar. 12 bar blues tune. He solos first. Super sweet phrasing and tone but at a snails pace. We're on opposite sides of the stage so I can't really see him too good.

My turn and I go all Gary Moore. Wasn't meaning to show him up but definitely wanted to display my chops.

Our time is up and the guy comes over to introduce himself. We give each other props and it's then I realize he only has 3 fingers on his fretting hand (thumb, index, and pinky). Where's that gutter when you need it?

I apologized profusely but he was really cool. He'd lost his middle and ring finger in an accident and had given up playing guitar for about 10 years. Then slowly started to get back into it and developed a new style with his limited digits. He was really good in a BB King kind of way. Great vibrato.

We got called back up later in the evening and I played my stuff not using my middle or ring finger. He kept laughing at me cause I was struggling, but we did an awesome extended call and response solo. Crowd loved it too when some realized what was going on.

I was excited to hear about the design and condition of the gutter. Colour me disappointed.

Once, when I was head of HR at our company I had to fire all these.... oh wait. Personal? Sorry, my mistake.

Last week I ate a perfectly good donut and cookie out of the trash can at Target. (They had clearly tossed them all out within the hour, so obviously they were fine) They weren't even remotely stale. In terms of garbage donuts, they were great.

So they were in a box or a tied bag, right?
