Chik-Fil-A's New Grilled Chicken Dissapoints Long Time Fan

Dear Chik-Fil-A,

I realize that you spent $50 million dollars and seven years to formulate your new grilled chicken recipe, but I'm wondering if you could please change it back to the original recipe?

While the new more-distinct grill marks are visually appealing, your new herb-cluttered marinade masks the succulent natural chicken flavor.  I used to order the grilled chicken sandwich once a week, now I can't even look at a picture of that sandwich.

While I'm all for change when it brings about better things, I'm against it if it makes things worse.  Not to worry though, I have a solution for this chicken debacle---or chickbacle---as my Grandmother used to say. Using my proprietary, unique two step process, you can revert to the original recipe and actually make more money than you would have had you never started on this chickbacle.

Step 1: Come out with a "new" recipe that isn't as good as the original recipe. People will buy it because it's new. (You've already accomplished this.)

Step 2:  After people realize the new sandwich is no good and sales taper off, bring back the original, and call it Grilled Chicken Classic. Sales will surge.

Thank you so much for your time.

Why Do We Take Sports So Seriously?

I wouldn't have ever been picked to be “Sporty Spice.” I'd probably get picked as the "Likes Stuffed Animals Too Much Spice." Point being, I wasn't much of a sports player or sports fan growing up. I spent most of my days cataloging my stuffed animals' life experiences in a notebook and stirring up self-directed trouble in the neighborhood.
In an ironic twist, in addition to their love of stuffed animals (thanks to me), my boys love sports. Four years ago I'd never heard of "Comp” Sports. Now, most of my time is spent practicing, playing, or talking about them---oh and let’s not forget paying for them.

15 years ago if someone told me I’d be a “baseball mom” who spent every weekend and weekday shuffling her kids to practices and games, I’d call them bat-crap crazy. (*Sigh* the things we’ll do for our kids…am I right?) 
Since my kids started playing sports, I’ve seen and heard a lot of things that made me question the inherent goodness of the average…

Rock, Paper, Scissors, Pencil

Okay, so I didn't succeed in stopping the Kaysville cannon this year. But next year will be different. Next year, I'm actually going to try. I'll keep you posted.

On to a different subject, which is somewhat related to the previous topic since both involve me improving the world. I'm looking to renew my childhood dream of adding pencil to the rock, paper, scissors game. I added it many, many years ago, and was able to successfully convert my next-door neighbor, so I'm pretty sure now that I'm all grown up and wiser and what not, that I'll have no problem convincing the rest of you to add it.

Instead of saying "Rock, Paper, Scissors" you will say "Rock, Paper, Scissors, Pencil." Okay, see now, it's a subtle but significant difference. There are four elements instead of three. It might seem a bit tricky at first, but you'll get the hang of it, and then you will never want to go back to the original version.

The rules are as follow…

How Much Should You Tip A Balloon Artist?

When did balloon animals get so complex? Check out the detail on these works of art:

I used to tip the balloon guy a dollar per balloon animal and felt like that was fair. Today with all the detail work the guy put in I felt $1.00 wasn't enough, so I upped it to $2.00. Now I'm wondering if that was too low. Also, when I asked where he learned his craft, he answered, "Jail." I LOLd. Would that warrant a higher tip? Then on the ride home my kids insisted that was his only job, and that made me sad.
