I met Jen at the office at just afternoon, with two quick stops on the way—one at Food Lion, where I nabbed a pack of bagels, and then a quick drive-thru at Bruegger's for some coffee. In a pleasant surprise, the guy working the drive-thru was customer-oriented, pleasant, and good-looking.
Jen and I spent some time putting together the first draft of an outline for a presentation we're doing at a conference in two weeks:
And here are the details of our session:
That's a lot to try and cover in 45 minutes. We'll see.

"Yes," he said.
"Congratulations, man," I said extending my hand.
