Okay, so this is how it goes... I get in the car at 0515, open the garage door, and start the car. I figured I could get in one more good laugh at the "Call for Entries" thread before I started my daily commute. So, I then check the phone and see a thread marked "Winners." Right away, I get a queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach. I open the thread and my eye goes right to the "Best Overall" award, only to see Pi Rho Peppers- Dat's My'en written after it. I open my door and run toward the house to break the news to my wife and get a clean change of underwear. Immediately upon realizing that I drive a standard... I think to myself that it probably would have been a good idea to put on the parking break. After a short chase out of the garage, I am finally able to secure the vehicle, slow my heart rate, and let the events of the previous 30 seconds sink in.
Thus, my day began... and it has only gotten better since. I am really overjoyed to see my sauce receive such accolades... especially in the company of so many other great sauces. This really is an awesome group of people on THP and I'm very thankful to just be a part of this event. Congratulations to all. You guys rock!
