weird dream

So last night was my going away bash for Progressive. End result? I got a cool hat, some Superman ballons, and some weird dreams. Thanks to everyone who came out. I had a great time. It's been a great experience working with all of you, and my only regret is that I haven't had a chance to work with some of you more.

So... weird dream?
Basically it managed to combine fruit snacks, Sprite, toilets, and contests. I was totally confused in the dream, so there's no way it'll make sense in reality, but here goes. It was some contest sponsored by the fruit snack people and the Sprite people. To submit your entry you needed to get a can of Sprite (not a bottle), drink it till there's about 1cm of Sprite left on the bottom, chuck three fruit snacks in (I think they were Shark Bites), and then submit them by flushing the can down a toilet.

So how on earth can a can be flushed down a toilet? I gave it several attempts. In one of my earlier, more memorable attempts, I flushed first, then tried to chuck in the can as the water was exiting. Somehow, the can got rejected and got ejected several feet up in the air. Luckily, I was able to catch it. I also tried filling the entire can up with Sprite, which didn't work. Neither did substituting ginger ale for the Sprite... or using a Sunkist can. Obviously some fantastic reasoning skills at work here. Apparently the "real" way of submitting was to push the can down the hole as far as it can easily go, then flush. I never tried this because I didn't think it would work. Yes, fantastic reasoning skills at work. (-:
