A Hunting Trip of Sorts

Today... I went hunting. Man, do I feel extra manly.

...Okay, maybe I wasn't actually hunting per say, but I did go mint hunting today. You see, I went to Olive Garden this evening, and it's sort of a tradition of mine to challenge myself and see how many mints I can get. Last time, I finished with 52 mints. But this time... I made out with a whopping 98 mints >:D


All my mints ^_^


The ironic part of it though, is that my waitress only accounted for about 15 of these mints (even when I vividly hinted to her that her tip would be very dependent upon how many mints I got); I got a good 80% of those from another waiter (of course I ask just about every waiter I see for some), who was so kind as to bring me 61 in a to-go box, plus another good handful before that. 

Call me childish but... it's the little things. :3 So how about my fellow bloggers? Any strange traditions with you? Dare I say, MINT HUNTING?! (No one? Never mind...)

  6. I never do enjoy the mints, but I always have tried to sneak a few home anyways. I don't think I will ever come close to your high score though.

    Lovin' the Blog, though! Follow'd.

  7. LOL what a great post, I love those little andes mints too.

    My tradition is kind of stupid I guess, but whenever I go out I try to steal something. Not anything big, but so far I've gotten a Parmesan cheese shaker from round table, a pepper grinder from carinio's and my biggest score was a drink mixer from chilis. I also take various pieces of silverweare.

  8. Dude, teach me. I love those little suckers. Something about getting them from Olive Garden makes them taste better than just buying a bag at the store. Isn't that weird?

    We are totally trying this next time we go.
