MeanPR #53 still in
That post wasn't sitting well with me and it was certainly wrong on my part to put the burden of deciding whether I was still in or not, that is after the fact that I purchased some shaving related items.
Although my aftershave "broke" and went unusable, but still it was a purchase and not a simple replacement but various items, abd that is playing loose with the guidelines.
I sensed that not one but several points/ rules were touched due to the purchase and that is enough for me to consider myself as being "Knocked out"
After all, it is supposed to be our call.
Even if nobody would have said that I was out, I won't have felt as good about completing the GRUYERE because I knew that I purchased something in the year.
I'll join fellow gentlemen in next adventure and hopefully I will be able to finish the year long journey without a hiccup.
I practiced restraint and developed a better sense of control, GRUYERE has helped me a lot.
Good luck to all of you and I must say that I am a better person after being in such fine company.
Your integrity is much appreciated and respected but you will be sorely missed. Hope you are around for the next one!
