2018: Day 117 The one with more of the NFL draft and some snacks
The thumbnail for today features three very good hot sauces. A fiery chipotle sauce from Hot Ones, a scotch bonnet and ginger sauce from Queen’s Majesty, and the Carolina reaper edition of The Last Dab. They were dipping sauces lined up for some vegan wings and a few tater tots. Dipping tater tots in a sauce made from Carolina reaper peppers was not the smartest of my decisions. That sauce is seriously hot and well not very forgiving. I kept dipping tater tots in the sauce. It was not a quality decision making moment. Strangely it was not really a teachable moment either. At some point, I will do it all again. Consuming something with over 1.5 million Scoville units on a tater tot is always questionable. I have two bottles of the original Last Dab Hot sauce with Pepper X which rates at more than 3 million Scoville units. Strangely enough I do better with the Pepper X version of the sauce than the Carolina reaper version. Maybe Pepper X is less heat forward and more a build up type of heat.
I could spend the rest of the night writing about hot sauce, but that is not a good path to go down. At the moment, I’m trying to decide if walking downstairs this late at night and doing a live stream on YouTube is the right way to go. I’m pretty tired at this point and probably could not give it my all. The new series of live streams are really a weekend only type of activity. During the week I just do not have enough time to produce quality live streams. I could do some type of sweet 4K daily vlog episodes, but that was not as much fun as I thought it would be. Last year I made a large number of consecutive day vlog publications. It was an interesting thing to try out, but it confirmed that my filmmaking skills are limited. Maybe I could do better with a combination of planning and practice.
Earlier today I dropped a Tweet that said, “You cannot teach coal to be fire… you can only ignite the flame. Driving change is a journey. Inspiring change is a mission. Be you. Your best efforts striving forward will inspire the winds of change.” That entertained me. It reminded me that I need to start writing more inspirational tweets.
