So it begins
Justin and I got there ahead of Chris, so we hung out with Laura for a while (Ben was off getting some chips and soda). We visited Emmett briefly (he was in bed, but wanted to say hi to us), and he was cute as ever. He showed us a toy dinosaur he had (with the tail broken off), and Justin remarked that it felt like it was filled with popcorn. Emmett laughed a lot this.
Laura and Ben, checking out the lay of the land.
The royal view from my vantage point.
A non-Emmis employee? In possession of the LORD AND MASTER STEIN™?
*drops monocle in shock*
Winning the stein is one of the greatest feelings. I loved having the stein in my possession, as it was a way to just flaunt superiority. People can smack talk all the way, but you can always, always have the last word by asking where the stein is. Oh, that’s right. *I* have it.
And if owning the stein is the greatest feeling in the world, the worst feeling is having to rinse the fucker out. And towel it off for the guy who just won it from you.
