Q: “Were you expecting an exploding pen? We don’t really go in for that anymore.”

Recently discovered: coffee makers contain bits-n-pieces that are fun to photograph. Even if said machine does little to improve upon the taste of a glass of Coke. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Security: “Okay, okay, just try it again, please.”

Security: “Okay, sir, I’m going to have to ask you just one more time…”

Me: “Oh, wait…  you don’t think it could be this GIANT aluminum frame?!”
