The Sign of the Trident

I'm pretty sure I'm a demigod.  I know that sounds crazy, but how else do you explain the signs I've received?  I'm getting ahead of myself, I suppose I should probably explain the miraculous signs.

There is something you should know before I tell my story.  First, I feel that Sheldon should explain the difference between a fork and a trident.  Watch this video:

As Sheldon so eloquently puts it, "tridents are for ruling the seven seas."  Well, that brings me to my story.  On Thursday night Robyn and I went out to dinner at Mimi's Cafe.  They served us dinner, but they also gave us this:

I joked to Robyn that I didn't know whether I should eat or rule the seven seas.  But beyond that, I thought nothing of it.  Then last night, we had the company Christmas party for my work.  It was a very fancy and delicious dinner, but when I sat down I noticed this.
Well, obviously since I just joked about it the night before, the sign had to be sent again.  It is very reminiscent of the book The Lightning Thief (not the movie, it was a sad rendition of the book).  Percy Jackson got in an awesome sword fight where he beat everybody up.  When he stood in the water it healed all his wounds and he looked up and saw a glowing Trident above his head, it was sent from Poseidon to let him know that Percy was his son.

Clearly Poseidon was sending me a message.  I am meant to rule the seven seas.  I think this means I should take more trips to the beach.


  1. I'll see what I can do about the trips to the beach.

  2. I'd vote for you to rule the seven seas, but I think since you've gotten enough signs, I think my vote is irrelevant.

    P.S. I love Sheldon Cooper.

  3. Just fyi, I've known that you were a demigod for sometime, but I was supposed to let you figure it out on your own. Now that it is common knowledge I feel that we should go on some cool quests and stuff. I have some lined up...the world just won't stay saved.

  4. hahaha. yes. more trips to the beach!

  5. Maybe it's a sign that you should eat at more fancy restaurants!
