After the helicopter tour, the three of us sat back and had a nice Schwan’s dinner. For those of you who don’t know, Schwan’s is a food company that delivers frozen foods right to your home. The Schwan’s guy, as Mike calls him, would come every other week in his freezer truck and you pick out what you want from the menu just as you would from an ice cream truck, but only better!
|Simple and easy, just the way we like it.|
At around 2 am, Mike had to go back to the tower to upgrade the computer systems. Because of all the different time zones, Grand Canyon ATC got the crappy end of the stick. We tagged along for the experience and to help out if needed; turned out great because it made the whole process much easier than if Mike had gone in to do it alone. Amanda and I had a great time because we pretended we were on a secret spy mission.
|The next day Mike decided to host a shindig at his place and invited everyone from work. The three of us drove out to the grocery store in Grand Canyon to grab some munchies and drinks for the party.|

|Things got carried away when one of the guys had too much to drink.|
Things got even better when it was Amanda’s turn and it was not because she drank too much alcohol. See what she’s holding in her hand? She decided to give chewing tobacco a try for the first time. It was hilarious because Mike warned her that she was going to get sick, but once again in Amanda’s usual flair, goes ahead and tries it anyway. Amanda prepared herself by keeping a trash can close by. When the trash filled up, the sink was the next best thing. Luckily there was a food waste disposer installed. Amanda describes the experience as being sober to complete drunkenness in less than 30 seconds; the room kept spinning and spinning. Mike laughed it off and said “the funny thing about it is that it’s legal!” I was very curious to try it myself, but after seeing what Amanda had to go through, forget it. She ended up sleeping by the toilet for a while before I carried her to bed.
One drink too many.
Let’s try chewing tobacco!
Chip dip replenished!
