A stick car and a cooking tip

So last night while I was sleeping soundly in my bed, I had the most unusual dream; and in that dream
I had the weirdest encounter. Many of you may remember me mentioning my friend Tony once or twice. Tony is the friend who is responsible for bringing me to Pete and vise versa.
Anyway, I dreamed that I needed my wedding dress back in a hurry because for some reason Pete and I were getting married again for the second time but Tony had my dress. Which actually is true because Tony just recently got married to the lovely Veronika and I loaned her my dress to wear.

The crazy thing about it though is that Tony showed up driving a stick car. That's right a stick car. A car made out of sticks. Not twigs, not logs but sticks. It wasn't a lot of sticks either. It was made out of about 20 sticks. Even the steering wheel was a stick.

For your viewing pleasure I have recreated this scene in my dream using Paint.....viola!

I remember asking Tony how on earth it ran without an engine and this was the reply:

"I dunno....but I've been driving this thing since the 1st grade."

On to the cooking tip!

So I'm sure many of you have gone to a plethora of restaurants and you find yourself bringing home leftover french fries from your meal to eat for lunch the next day. I have done this to, not a lot of times I assure you but it's happened every so often. Well it happened to me again last night.

P brought me home a hamburger that came with fries but I wasn't able to eat them. There were a ton.
So when I got home from work today I decided to eat them. If you're like me you just throw them into the microwave and call it good. Well I was sick of doing that because it made the fries nice and hot but it also made them unbelievably soggy. So I thought to myself, surely there's a better way to reheat french fries so they're crispy again. Let's ask Google!
This is what I found out:
There are many ways to reheat your fries.
I chose to use the oven.

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Spread the fries on to a cookie sheet
When the oven is ready, bake the fries for about 2 mins.
Make sure you keep a close eye on them so they don't burn.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with a little sea salt.

Yes I did enjoy them....thank you for asking.
