Of Prototypes and Pickles

Today was a long day. It was not a bad day by any means, but it was definitely a long day. My instinct and want, though not my wont, was to head straight home from the office, get filthy drunk, and eat an entire jar of garlicky dill pickles. Instead I went to a local coffee shop and read from The Principles of Object-Oriented JavaScript by Nicholas C. Zakas—which is one of the best programming language books I've ever read from at any location. After about an hour of that nonsense I headed home to eat two small garlicky dill pickles over a couple of weak whiskey and sodas. I prefer a one ounce pour of whiskey to the standard two ounces, and I use mineral water rather than soda. I'm very nearly grown up these days, but the battle is not yet lost. Earlier today I ate so many Swedish fish I wanted to vomit a little. It was great.
