Good morning crew,
I decided to take a vacation day today. It was either that or lose it, and while I really do enjoy hanging out at the office and pretending like I'm working, I thought a free day might be the perfect opportunity to run over to Indiana and visit one of my favorite local micro breweries to do a little drinking in the middle of the week.
Because it's not like there are any opportunities to party coming up in the near future.
I'll fill you in on any stories next week.
Laugh it up,

My friend Kimberly announced that she had started a diet to lose some pounds she had put on recently.
"Good!" I exclaimed. "I'm ready to start a diet too. We can be dieting buddies and help each other out. When I feel the urge to go out and get a burger and fries, I'll call you first."
"Great!" she replied. "I'll ride with you."

When my daughter was about 9-years-old I became pregnant again. Of course, she wanted to know how it happened, so I gave what I considered an appropriate explanation of the process.
She asked, "Did you do that to get me?"
I said "yes," and she responded, "And you did it again?"
