Have you ever met someone, had a brief discussion, then afterwards wondered . . .

Some people believe in the “throw enough crap at the wall something will stick” approach to selling. But when you are selling yourself, what you do or how you get it done, this method can just leave a real mess to clean up later.

"I was in the most beautiful city of the world, and I couldn't get a good photo," Palmero says. "It was then that I decided I was tired of taking horrible photos. I was going to do something about it."
And something he did.

But this one makes me wee bit nervous.
It was nestled in a vending machine at 307 E. 2nd St. (Trinity St.) near the convention center in Austin ... in front of the Bates Motel.
Blue neon lights beckoned "Free Munchies" with a cannabis leaf insignia.
Being that it actually was a dark and stormy evening, I surreptitiously glanced around before pressing the buttons. A "Norma" brownie quietly slipped down the shaft.
