Good morning crew,

So the 4th of July party turned out pretty well, from what I could tell. I spent most of my time either cooking, cleaning, or washing dishes.

One of the consequences of hosting a medium-sized mob.

Another consequence was the disaster area the wife and I woke up to Wednesday morning. You know how you usually invite more people than you are expecting, because there are always a few people who don't show up?

Well, everybody showed up.

It looked like there was a frat party on Adderall in the backyard. I still haven't figured out who stuck a firecracker inside a hotdog, and we had to give the dog a complete bath to get all of the guacamole out of her fur.

But the real treat came about midmorning, in the middle of cleanup, when both the washing machine and the kitchen sink started leaking. I mean, what are the chances?

So on top of everything else we had floods in the laundry room and the kitchen to deal with.

But, at least everything is over and done with and we can finally get back to normal.

At least until the next party which is, weekend after next, I think?

Laugh it up,

"On Monday in Vermont, a barrel of maple syrup fell off a truck and spilled all over the highway. Luckily, it broad-sided a French toast truck." -Conan O'Brien

Recently, I bought a cartridge for my printer. It came in a box mounted on a card and wrapped in plastic. When I took it apart, I found that the printer cartridge itself was actually quite small, but they made the packaging unnecessarily large to make it harder to steal and to make the customer feel better about the high price.

I pointed this out to my wife and mentioned how my weight gain over the years of our marriage should have the same effect: It made me seem more valuable and also made me harder for other women to steal.

She's still laughing.
