You may recall a post around this time last year where I displayed the amazing feat of strength of ripping a phone book in half after the big beefy boss men failed in their respective attempts to do so.
The new phone books were delivered to work today. I asked the boss if it meant I could rip the old one in half. He laughed and offered no objections.
Earlier this year the big beefy guy in last year's picture left the practice for a major career change...one involving some serious boot camp and post boot camp training where he HAD established his bad ass credentials. We've all missed him and his humor and we decided to send him a care package which included a pink teddy bear we all signed. He let us know he opened that package in front of all his fellow boot camp victims and some instructors. His bad ass rep was put in serious jeopardy.
Today I sent him this picture and asked him."This bad ass enough for you and cooler than the teddy bear?"
