The Arrival

I was beginning to doubt it would ever come, but this week, it happened . . . I got my t-shirt for being a taco eating champion. Here are the pictures from the official t-shirt presentation ceremony. It was a lovely event held at Del Taco in Bountiful. There were many people in attendance. After the official presentation, the crowd enjoyed tacos, nachos, and churros. Thank you to everyone who came. Thank you also to everyone who cheered me on, offered to bring me Pepto Bismal afterwards, or just generally offered words of amazement and love. I couldn’t have become the Taco Night Titan without you!

Me and Chris (my taco and t-shirt benefactor) just before the official t-shirt presentation.

The moment I became the official “TNT”. Yes, there are 15 tacos on the shirt. Don’t worry, those aren’t the “actual” tacos. I asked Chris if TNT also represented the fact that I wanted to explode after having eaten that many tacos. He said I’d just given too much info and he didn’t want to talk about it.

Me, sporting my new shirt and displaying a taco. I did eat three tacos that night. I’m not quite back up to par yet, but the thought of them doesn’t disgust me anymore. That’s progress.



  1. Holy Crap. THAT is an awesome Tshirt. I’m amazed and in awe TNT. Kim and I ate at Del Taco last night and I only ate 2 1/2 tacos and halfway through our dinner, we looked at each other and said, “could you imagine eating 15?” you. are. incredible.
