Michael was out of town for a couple of days. Coincidentally, during the exact days Isaac was supposed to hit Florida, but then took a last minute hook about 4 states to the west. A series of text messages are below. I love that he entertains me several states away. Hear that, single ladies? Marry a man who can make you laugh.
Setting: Monday morning, hotel restaurant. Before Michael's business meeting
M: So I ate bacon and somehow tons of bacon grease splattered all over my pants. But I remembered the Book of Jules and it says to use dish soap. I borrowed soapy dish water from kitchen. Has vastly improved the situation
J: Good thinking! Use a napkin on your lap next time
A couple hours later
M: I met [the CEO]!
J: Oh boy! I hope he didn't notice the bacon
Disclaimer: This is not my own personal tip, but one I remembered reading years ago. It was probably in Good Housekeeping. The logic being that dish soap cuts through grease on dishes-- and on all other materials. I'm telling you, it works!
