I'll Be Home for Wawa, You Can Count on Me

It's probably a good idea that the FlipVideo camera wasn't around when I was more into, um, let's just call them "shenanigans". The fact that there are only still photo records and oral histories of some of my more colorful escapades may be best for all involved.

These days I'm less inclined to be playing a drunken game of home run derby in the police station parking lot at 3 AM and more inclined to be walking up to Wawa for some Christmas morning coffee.

Knowing first-hand the heartache of not having a Wawa nearby (one of the cruelest jokes of my time in Pittsburgh) I decided to take my Flip along as I made my way up the street to the Beach Haven, LBI Wawa on Christmas morning 2008. Here's a waist-eye view complete with an apropos holiday classic playing softly over the store's loudspeakers...

I'm a half-mile from one and will pass another on my way to the train this morning. I could have just head up there and watched this in person but watching it through your eyes is to know your joy.

I SO wish someone had said something.

You forgot to mention that you can also hear that signature Wawa cash register 'ding'.

When are you going to Costco? I'm dying to see what that's like.

Actually, I had to cut out a whole segment where I talked with the cashier and then went over and got some soft pretzels because the screen went black (ie, the camera slid down into my pocket). Maybe on the director's cut special edition DVD. I need to rig up some kind of headgear that I can wear with the camera in it. Maybe a fez. Yeah, I could see CT going for that...

What did you put in your coffee? I thought you took it black?

Black for me. Sweetener and half & half for the lady.
