Just shot down the street, had to go to the store and get some *cough* drops. Happened to C&R five brookies along the way.

That's making effective use of your time!

I once landed a hatchery steelhead hen before a Boeing meeting and after gutting it in a suit and tie was late for the meeting. The account mgr was pissed that I was a few minutes late, but he should have been glad I cleared the mud from my dress shoes before attending. He cooled down after a while and started to made small talk during a break. We sat in the same coffee room where I had stashed the steelhead, fearing it would be bad in the trunk of my car. It was his turn to host the neighborhood dinner party and he knew I liked to cook so he asked what I recommended for a recipe for a group of people. I opened the fridge and said "how about fresh steelhead?". He said "put that back, you don't know who it belongs to..." and I said "why do you think I was late?".

He said "all is forgiven" and I heard later the dinner party was a hit!
