Today was GLORIOUS as we had a "burn off the chili" day, featuring 1) spicy chicken 2) three beans and beef and 3) mixed beef and pork chilis. There were also two kinds of cornbread, regular (rather sweet) and Mexican. (I was lame and forgot about making my yummy vegetarian chili given the rush to clean the house last night.) I especially liked the social aspect of this - sitting down in the "living" room at work with about thirty other people, visiting and chatting and having a right nice time. Suprisingly, I liked that even more than getting a free lunch, though, in fact, the lunch was free. But I get free food regularly enough - what I don't have is people to enjoy it with. How right was Epicurus when he said, "Eating or drinking without a friend is the life of a lion or wolf." I hope we get to do this again.
