rock paper scissors


About 15 years ago, we were on a family vacation which required quite a bit of walking. So, we found a way to entertain ourselves; we played rock paper scissors with Drew. He was 6 and not nearly as skilled as I was at age 13, or my older siblings Tyler and Kendra. To make things interesting, we almost always had a wager: foot rubs at the end of the night. Guess how many nights I got foot rubs? Almost every night. Poor Drew.

Tomorrow Drew and I won't be playing rock paper scissors, nor will either of us be receiving a foot rub. But we will be catering for an estimated 2,000 people who will be playing rock paper scissors. This is our largest catering job to date--actually almost double our next largest job. But we have three bad-mama-jama grills and a plethera of skilled employees. We have some new threads we'll be wearing. Our trailer has been totally decked out with shelving, a slick new paint job, and lots of bungee cords.

We're ready, I think. Actually we're stressed. But it will be done tomorrow and then we can focus on Saturday's catering job. Pheh, and I just got done thinking about the one we did tonight.

Foot rub anyone?

I have a friend who works for Omniture and each year they have this huge, fancy Christmas party. Fancy as in all the men are required to wear tuxes and all the women ball gowns. Well, two years ago as their main event they had a company wide rock-paper-scissors contest - with elimination like the sweet sixteen. And my friend one the whole thing. Her prize? A $10,000 African Safari. Yeah, rock-paper-scissors talents pay off!
