You Had Better Take MacGyver’s Credit Card!

MacGuyver - Richard Dean AndersonJust a short update for now (I will be pretty busy over the next few days… or weeks… month?). I went over to MEC (for all your folks from Seattle, MEC is like REI… well REI when it first started anyway) to see if they had any cheap sleeping pads and lanterns. I wasn’t in any hurry and browsed the store and finally got up to the registers. I glanced at the back of the head in front of me and it sure looked a lot like MacGyver but didn’t really think much of it. The chap got to the register and his $700+ of merchandise was rung up and I glanced at the computer screen which states the name of the co-op member and sure enough it was Richard Dean Anderson, Mr. MacGuyver himself! The next ten minutes was spent waiting for the cashier to figure out how Mac’s payment would go through… eventually another “helper” came along and they were able to take his $700 (Canadian mind you). He apologized to me for all the problems (yes, I was actually spoken to by MacGuyver!) and went about his way. After he left I asked the cashier if she had ever watched MacGyver and after explaining that she knew she recognized him from somewhere, I told her that next time she had better take MacGyver’s credit card, no questions asked.

I expected him to buy more toothpicks, dental floss, toothpaste, and nylons or duct tape… maybe that will be his next stop…

    I’m jealous, but not because you met McGuyver, but because you met
    General O’Neill from Stargate SG-1.
