My best friend is getting married soon and I was trying to think of something cool to get him. I decided on a custom engraved bottle of Blue Label since Johnnie Walker is his favorite drink anyways. I was originally going to go with a pre-baked message of “TO YOUR STEPS DOWN THE AISLE AND BEYOND” but then I thought, that’s way too sappy. What’s something he’d really like?
So I missed my flight to goto Boston and drive my mom home. The person at the desk was like, “all you have to do is board.” I thought they’d call my row. Turns out no, she meant I needed to walk on the plane.
Anyways the plane leaves at 11:40. At like 11:34 this lady runs up and finds out she missed her plane. She starts screaming and cursing. Eventually she resigns herself to her fate and is just going crazy, bawling and streaming tears. I don’t get it. Like, I understand a quick, “fuck!” or something, but what’s done is done. There is no way you’re going to cry your ass back through time and change things like some sissy version of the Terminator. It’s over. You can’t change anything. Get over it. What’s done is done.
Every week at work we have these meetings where everyone brings in a notepad and takes the most worthless of notes. Things like, “turn the computer on” are written on them and it’s almost a contest to see who can write the most information on them. This sparked memories of grade school and today at 3am I woke up feeling that I simply must find a Trapper Keeper and bring it to the next meeting. You want to notes? This is how you take notes.
I was surprised to see that Mead is trying to make a comeback with these things and even more surprised to see that they are making them boring as hell.
I don’t know what the hell this is, but it damn sure ain’t a Trapper Keeper
C’mon Mead. In the age of hipsters and everything 80s and early 90s coming back, this is the best you can come up with? So with that, I hit eBay looking for something to satisfy me. Low and behold, I came across this bad boy:
Now this is a Trapper Keeper
This is what I’m talking about. And coincidence or providence, look at that name. Taylor is already written on it in kid handwriting! It must be a match made in heaven.
