PAX were fairly quiet today. Too much counting involved. The exception, of course, was Deep Dish. He got happier the more burpees were mentioned.

PAX were generally all excited for more bacon. Not so much the extra tomato mentioned.

There was great shaming at the inclusion of avocado, but YHC wouldn’t know how to respond if some derision wasn’t thrown his way during a Q.

The title would be “A Sonnet to the BLT” but YHC didn’t have the requisite verses.
