Feir and Wit: Entering the Age of Wedding Bells

January 21, 2013

I have entered the age of wedding bells and save-the-dates. I’m not exaggerating when I say a new engagement comes to my attention almost daily.

I think the main reason this stuns me is because of the recently outdated trend of the majority of the population waiting until they’re nearly 30 to get hitched. That’s not old, by any means, but it’s years later in life than when most couples started their lives together in previous generations.

Blonde on the Prairie: A Night in the Life of a Redneck Diabetic

January 18, 2013

I’m not a Catholic nor am I a criminal. Yet here I stand in an invisible confessional bearing my soul. In this life I wish to teach as much as I learn. I learned, for instance, sometime during the flood of 2009 never to set my keys on the shelf in a porta-pottie because it’s really not a shelf at all. If you look closely at the shelves in porta-potties they have a single hole in them. I learned it is not a shelf but rather a urinal. The hole has a purpose. The keys have since been washed. Trust me. I confessed that to you because I appreciate humor.
