On Saturday, July 12th, 2008, I saw the last show on my schedule from the 2007-2008 theatre season. I saw Disney’s The Lion King at the Kennedy Center. This was most likely my biggest year for seeing shows and included shows at the local high school, a community theatre, and several professional theatres in Washington, DC.

This year, I saw the following shows:  

To Kill a Mockingbird - Freedom High School - October 2007
Nutcracker - Warner Theatre - December 2007
My Fair Lady - Kennedy Center - January 2008
Kiss Me Kate - Freedom High School - February 2008

Cow Appreciation Day

Filed under: Life in General — Mike @ 10:40 pm

Friday, July 11th, 2008 was Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-A stores. They were giving out free entrees to anyone who came dressed as a cow. Their website said that if you come as a cow from head to hoof they would give you a free combo meal and if you just had a partial cow look, a free entree.

I was out shopping on Thursday and saw a children’s towel with a cow head and decided that would make a good costume for Cow Appreciation Day. I wore it to Chick-Fil-A at lunch and got a free sandwich. I decided I needed to go a little further and tried again at dinner. This time, I added a sign, and white sweatshirt and pants. This time, I got the free combo meal.

I think more people were dressed as cows at lunch time. Both visits, I saw older teens with the cow costume pieces from the Chick-Fil-A website taped to their shirts. It was fun going out as a cow. I will need to do it again next year.

It was also customer appreciation day at 7-eleven. They were giving 7.11 ounce slurpees for free. It was small, but hit the spot on a warm summer day.
