Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

If it looked like I was in this post portraying my worthy wife in a fashion that would imply that she was weak, or in any way incapable of taking excellent care of our daughters and protecting them, then I must here shamefully express my sincerist regrets for my inability to clearly convey my true esteem for her.

My wife is a strong, intelligent woman. I am fiercely proud of her, and hope that all who know me know this.

One day, while bragging on her to my best friend Scott, he laughed and interrupted me: "I think we can safely say that if you looked up the term 'self-reliant,' there'd be a picture of your wife in there."

I couldn't have put it better.

I didn't get the impression that you were giving your wife undue grief. Just so you know. It all sounded pretty matter-of-fact to me...she'd rather you not carry in places like that. Okay. *Shrugs*. :-)

I didn't take it that way either. After all, she picked you, didn't she?

I know, right?

Heh. Trust me, she complains that a LOT of misrepresentation went on before the marriage.

Back then, I wore a beard. (she really liked that.)

Back then, I wasn't a cop. (she's really ambivelent about this gig)

Back then, I was a little more, uh, mellow. (No, I didn't smoke the ganja or anything, but then again, I didn't arrest people for it, either.)

Back then, I had hair. Not just wore it longer, but my forehead wasn't so big.

Back then, I was skinnier.

Back then, I was younger.

Back then, I was better looking.

I think I see her point...

my impression was similar to squeaky wheel's. It would be a better world if one didn't feel the need to carry in a place like Six Flags, but lately, no gathering place is a cake walk, any more.
