    It was supposed to be Panel C but I went in early and I remember seeing a sign for Panel B but I don't know if that was for my panel or the one to the right of mine.

    No one should ever wear stirrup pants. I don't care if they're the last pair of pants on earth.

    I hadn't prepared for this question at all, so I was literally scouring my mind for "Greek" things I could mention to kids... I'm just glad they laughed.

    PM me for details... I have decided to be paranoid about leaving my summary up here as I'm pretty sure it's fairly identifiable as mine.
