Numero Uno

Drum roll please…. You have reached the inaugural, new, first, original, posting to my blog. First off, metaphorically raise your hand if you actually did the drum roll thing with your tongue or hands or some physical action… I have always wondered if I was the only one who did that.

I never thought in a million years that I would have a blog, but in an effort to improve my severely lacking communication skills, and for the sake of my beautiful wife who is left in the lurch of those lacking skills, and our marriage, I thought this might help. I have no doubt that I will be forced to turn in my man card for this, but it is worth it if it works. This does not mean, however, that I will be starting mani-pedi trips or drinking soy latte’s.

So let me run down what this will probably look like, a disclaimer, if you will. Let me start by apologizing to any English majors who might read this (or anyone else who holds spelling and grammar dear to their heart). Run-on sentences are my forte and I don’t feel like taking the time to find out how to put accent marks on letters and making everything perfect, unless I deem that to be important to the point being made. I am obsessed with the proper and improper use of ellipses and will use them to no end… I will try to keep posts coherent and organized as best as I can. I will probably include a lot very subtle jokes, so be on your toes. You may even need to read through the post 11 or 12 times.

Topics will vary immensely. I will leave most of the posting of the adventures of my daughter, Kennedy, to my lovely wife’s blog, because she does a much better job, but I will frequently mention her exploits and maybe reference posts on my wife’s blog. If you disagree with any of my opinions, please keep it to yourself to protect my fragile ego. OK, well, since this is all about improving communication, I welcome any viewpoints on anything I post and will listen to any disagreements, but then I will probably hold my feelings inside and resent you, or I may agree with you, or I may try to humiliate you and your viewpoints… so respond at your own risk.. I will be fair, I will treat everyone with the same disrespect. J/K If you know me, you know that is all a bunch of hooey. If you don’t know me… that is all a bunch of hooey. I love discussing any topic, especially ones I know nothing about, so feel free to bring anything up in a response as I love to learn.

I have no idea how often I will get to post. So if you enjoy reading the blog, you should probably check back every 15 minutes throughout the day. Thanks for reading and come back frequently, often, and a lot.

As mentioned above, my wife has a blog (A Little Training and a Little Life) and has been doing it for a while, so her blog is probably 3.14 times better than mine.
