- This is like a
Journey video from 2002...
I guess that's appropriate for my birthday
because it's the only time I attempt to think in
that vein anymore. Last year I was so sick of it
I barely had an entry, my 40th birthday to boot,
and didn't have a party... nothing. That part of my
ego is just not there. I am no longer that dude.
I have actual hats! I'm a husband and father and
that's more than a full-time job. I get to wear the
business hat, the career hat, the construction hat...
and they all MEAN something - as opposed to
before when I was just circling the drain. So
guess what hat I don't have much time for?
Pensive, self-reflecting hat. Yeah... maybe at 80. Too
busy now. Happily.
- However, going
over the files from the game today I must admit that's
the shot that hit me. A few years ago I would've been
utterly bewildered. I'm a life-long Bears fan, so why
do I have a St. Lous Rams jersey on? What the
fuck is a GolfKon? #9? Am I in the fucking
FRONT ROW at an NFL game?
- So we got back to
the house with Don to see the final debate which was
basically my nervous ass pacing for 90 minutes. Fuck
that was awful. This whole thing is awful. I want
it over. It's so ridiculously stupid. An entire month
left?!??! UGGGGH. Don took me and T to sushi and it
was a pretty good birthday. Actually, it was quite a
bit like any gameday or date night which, well, makes
life even sweeter.
- Who knew it could
be this good?
