Happy Hour

Dear Mr. Sonic Who brings me my Dr. Pepper,
Each day at 2 pm I look forward to the sweet hour at which I can buy a half priced Dr. Pepper with vanilla. Although I think your rollerblades are dorky, I loved the sound of them coming my way with a cold beverage to be delivered right to my car door. Today you took that joy away. I realize I visit Sonic way too much, but it is oh so close to the office and on the way to the interstate. I hoped you wouldn't remember me but today you said ,"how are you? I served you last time you were here." Ummm, last time was 24 hours ago Mister. I also realize the yellow monstrosity I drive is not exactly as stealthy as I wish, but I like to think I am a big yellow bumble bee stopping by my favorite flower for some sweet nector. I get the impression you think I am stopping by for you. No matter how many times you roll by and ask how I am doing or if I am sure I don't need something else, this bee just isn't interested.
So please Mr. Sonic, deliver my drinks and pretend you have never seen me before.
Until tomorrow at 2,
Your Most Faithful Customer

Making a list, and checking it twice...

So I have been trying to think of a list of 25 things to do before I turn 25. I've already lost a couple of months of work time since my birthday was in June so I need to get cracking if I am really going to do this. Here is the problem...I've only got 10 things on my list. Do you have any great ideas or things you have done that you think I should try? If you are reading this it is mandatory that you give one suggestion! Would you like to hear what I have so far? I apologize in advance for any...er...silly ones but it is all in the pursuit of feeling alive...right? With that said:
1. Go a whole week without wearing a bra (don't say I didn't warn you)
2. Take my vitamins everyday for 3 months
3. Learn/do something that scares me
4. Be healthy
5. Visit a new state
6. Be a better penny pincher
7. Make a new friend
8. Have my palm read
9. Write 25 poems
10. Visit my Grandpa and Grandmas graves
