Many years ago, as Reynolds and I goofed off at the record store and got paid to do so, we decided that we should try to learn something new each day. Sometimes what we learned was informative, sometimes instructive, and occassionally destructive. We could be especially creative in learning ways to look busy while doing as little as possible. We has massive cut'n'paste sessions with the promotional posters and flats; we had races to see who could organize artist CDs from first release to last in the least amount of time; we devised an elaborate game of hacky-sack in which the goal was to knock as many country artist cassettes from the shelving as possible.

Although I haven't seen Reynolds in a while, I still think of him whenever I learn a new task, and wonder if he still tries to learn something new each day.
