This is how I Sonic!

Hey there! I'm in Las Vegas hangin' out with the crew, well many crews, from Sonic Drive-Ins across the country. Every year they have a convention and celebrate the crew members and leaders and this year asked me to join. I am more than happy to be here because Sonic was my very first job ... ever. Well, I volunteered with the Red Cross, but this was the first paying job, with responsibilities and boy did it really shape me. Probably why I talk about it on Cooking for Real so much. Good thing I do though, because they heard about me and asked me to come hang out. I kept looking for the onion ring clause on the contract, never located it lol. I did however manage to get paid in Cherry Limeade Chips today ... totally a highlight!!!If you are lucky to have a Sonic Drive-In in your area I hope you have car hops with skates, there is just something neat about it. Well today I judged the "So You Think You Can Skate" competition. There was an obstacle course complete with customers, an agility skating course, and then at the end they had a skate off. Take a look at some of my amateur video ...Pretty cool. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being those people from the 70s doing crazy tricks and acrobatics, I'm about a 1. lol. So, I wore the skates a few times back then, but preferred shoes and a smile as my work accessories. That was 20 years ago, wow I feel really old. 20 years later and Sonic has their own brand of skates ... crazy ...Neat huh? Now I have a reason to practice my skills ... just need to buy some knee pads and a helmet teeheehee. Ok, just wanted to share a bit.

Oh, and I'm burying a lead here ... I've just been asked to host the Vendy's here in NYC!! Can wait for all the food truck action!!!

How fun! I haven't been to Sonic in years! There's one not too far from here, but I don't go around that way!

And it's been SO LONG since I've skated. I'd probably fall and break my leg or something, lol!
