I can remember it like it was yesterday. There before me, amid the chaos and a room full of people, was the second most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen. She had beautiful skin. She had gorgeous blue eyes. She had ten fingers and ten toes.
Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me start from the beginning. You see, it all started with a little pink stick.
Well, the stick itself wasn’t that special, but a small cross on the stick and what it represented. My wife sat on the cream-colored love seat in the family room, looked at the stick and said hesitantly, “I think it’s positive ”. That was followed by disbelief, and then elation. We hugged each other, and ran to the grocery store to get three more kits each of different brands. Just in case, you know. And one after another, each elicited the same jubilation. Read more »

What do Sanjaya, Kevin Covais and Megan Joy have in common? No – get past that I knew all their names. Yes, they’re all people that made no sense on how they made it to the top 12 of American Idol.

If you’ve been at least semi-conscious over the past six months, you’ve heard of the Nintendo Wii. It’s a nifty gadget with a weird name, and is the hottest game around now. To prove it – go to any toy store and ask to purchase one. You’ll be soon met by a hearty, condescending laugh from the 17-year old clerk. Forget gold – people should be stocking up on Wii’s during a recession. But something about this Wii craze has me feeling a little uneasy.

Do you remember the Seinfeld episode where George Costanza lamented about “World’s Colliding”? George was worried that when his fiance’, Susan, started hanging out with the gang, that the two worlds would irrevocably collide, with Relationship George killing Independent George. Back in the mid 90′s when it aired, we could all relate that about a one aspect of your life meeting another with unpredicable results. Seeing your teacher at a grocery store perhaps.
