The waffle comment mentioned above refers to this:
I took the waffle photo a few months after I had submitted a photo for consideration in our company's yearly calendar contest. My photo was one of the twelve chosen. We have employees in several states so it was kind of a big deal (well to me, at least). Honestly the winning photo was nothing spectacular, but it showed my son standing on the long porch of a historic hotel with a row of American flags flying above him. I cropped him out and submitted just the flags and porch scene because I knew that anything patriotic would probably win me points with the judges. And obviously it worked. The next year when the calendar contest began again, I desperately wanted to submit the waffle photo. I don't know why. I think it's because I like to imagine the look of disgust and horror on the faces of the judging committee. They'd probably be like, "Oh look-- here's an email from Gina. We used her awesome flag photo last year. Let's see what's she's got for us this year." And then there would be silence and everyone would be thinking, "WTF"? My friend Marge talked me out of doing it. She's a good friend to me.
