A week or so ago I got an e-mail from Dex of the SDMBStaff requesting I reprise my quest for the reason behind holes in shoe polish lids as a possible article for the Mailbag.
And lo! I pop on the SDMB and there it is in the Mailbag section today!
They like me! They really like me!!
But it’s ChiefScott (one word) guys!!
I understand you’re in line for your own syndicated talk show, too. Congrats!
(I think you should do a show on left-handed lesbian lifeguards living in Louisiana, longing for live-in help.)

I saw that and I was happy for you, even though since my sig has a smilie in it, I figured you hate me now!
You need to add to your sig “SD Staff Pinch Hitter,” or words to that effect!
I HAVE BEEN SMOKE-FREE FOR:
Two weeks, two days, 16 hours, 52 minutes and 55 seconds.
668 cigarettes not smoked, saving $83.51.
Life saved: 2 days, 7 hours, 40 minutes.
I understand a small stipend goes along with being selected as a pinch-hitter but you have to pick it up in person. Personnel on extended European cruises are therefore ineligible.
Congrats anyway, Chief.
Wow! The memories that brought back!
I’m glad you folks liked the article.
Dex came out of the blue and asked me to do a little article. Ed apparently cleaned it up a bit and – voila!
Oh, and Brian…

I’m amazed you’re still talking to us, you egomaniac. (smiley goes here)
Me? Green with envy? Moi?
And a major triumph, Scott.
So, what’re gonna do for an encore?
