I hope that everyone remembered to claim their free taco yesterday.
I greeted my co-workers with "Happy Free Taco Day!" [because I am a dork]. And a few of them humored me by going with me to Taco Bell to claim our loot. None of us particularly LIKE Taco Bell, a fact that they pointed out to me a few times, but I informed them that Jason Bartlett had worked very hard to steal free tacos for us, and by god, we are going to eat them. It's the principle of the matter. None of my coworkers care a lick about baseball, and know Jason Bartlett only in the context that he is the October hottie on my Twins wall calender. I credit them with being extremely good sports about the whole thing. (I'm also pretty sure they were skeptical about the whole free taco idea, right up until the tacos were actually in our hands.)
While waiting for our free tacos, a strange man informed me that I looked like Sarah Palin, to which my response was a look of horror and an emphatic "God forbid!" followed by "I buy my clothes off the rack."
After he walked away, a co-worker noted the irony by saying "Of all the people to say that to...."
Perhaps I will think about growing my bangs out.
Anyway, thank you Jason Bartlett, for winning everyone free tacos with your base-stealing prowess. They were delicious.
In other vaguely baseball-related news, I find this Guitar Hero World Tour ad entertaining enough to have watched it at least a dozen times so far.
A-Rod is totally the weak link, and I find it amazing how much I did NOT ever need to see him in his underwear.
In contrast, the ad also serves as just one more bit of evidence to support the Official Those Girls Theory that Michael Phelps should be legally prohibited from wearing pants.
