A Meme

Rogue Chocolate Stout and Unibroue La Fin Du Monde

It’s my first time getting tagged with a meme and I want to say something cool like, “I had to look it up on Wikipedia because I don’t know what it is.” I know exactly what it is, though. It means that I now have a grand total of five readers and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks to Deb of Kahakai Kitchen for noticing my little corner on the interwebs and finally using the correct gender-specific pronoun to address my masculine self. She even edited “her site” to “his site” in her meme post.
