Uncle Evan Learns Things So You Don't Have To

Imagine you're hurrying to leave for work on a Friday morning. When you accidentally spill a bunch of Odorless Garlic Tablets across the counter and several go into the sink and land in dishes being left to soak, you decide to deal with them later (It's not as if you're more likely to consume them if you scoop them out from the grungy water right away, or a day later, you know?).

So then you're washing dishes on Saturday morning, and you discover that Odorless Garlic Tablets dissolve pretty well in water. And the reason they're Odorless is not because the manufacturer has removed all the garlicky aroma, but because the tablet keeps it all in. Until it's dissolved. Right now, you could close your eyes in my apartment and it's like being magically transported to Gilroy, California (I'm sorry if that image makes you cry too).

Lesson Learned: The IT world is not ready for Consultants to use Professional Names in the style of Magicians and Clowns, so my box of 1,000 "The Amazing Evan" business cards is pretty much a waste.
