I hope you’ll all forgive my continued absence
My wife is on a business trip and in order to secure an absolutely freaking killer deal on some stone mosaic floor tile yesterday (normally $18 a sq. foot, I got it at about $0.77 from my buddy’s store — they had excess they were trying to move) I had to run down to his shop and pick it up before some jerk removed the “hold” sign and tried to steal it out from under me.
So with the two boys in tow I made the trek and then loaded up a thousand or so pounds of the stuff. Then I came home an unloaded it when I found out I’d loaded it on top of our wrestling bags just as I was about to take Satch in for open mat.
[note: it looks far more slate-like in person]
I’m sore, I’ve been under constant assault for the last two days from putative “conservatives”, and apparently some trucker (and maybe a “RINO Hunter”, too) from Twitter is going to come to my house to beat me up. I asked him for 30 minutes lead time so I can get a camera set up. I haven’t been working out much with the house stuff going on — about a month off now, I figure, since I got all swole for my reunion — but I’m pretty sure having just sparred with a few mil spec ops guys and in the process shown them the force of a top wrist lock, to great acclaim; and having also recently sparred with a BJJ-trained friend half my age (he choked me from behind as a joke and wound up on his back with my elbow on his throat after his triangle choke failed to hold my arm) — I’m set, despite not being at my strongest.
At any rate, I’m checking in, and I’d like to thank you all for keeping the site going. I’ll try to post a bit today if I get the chance, but Tanner woke me up at 5 AM and right now I feel like I’m living in a world that’s had all the air removed and replaced with jello. Plus, I have to pick out some fans. These are awesome. Thinking about putting a 10′ orange one in our living room to accentuate the 22′ ceilings. And yes, I’m now fascinated by fans, including this one that is going into the master bedroom and, as a coordinated pair, on the covered patio. Also, I’m into spray foam. And silent garage door openers. And garbage disposers.
I don’t know what’s happening to me. I need help. Although admit it: you want one of these, too.
Thanks to those of you who came to my defense last night. Most people just think it better to stay out of those kinds of things; me, I think it important to drag these fauxcons out into the light where we can see just how ugly they really are. But I often have to do it alone, at great personal expense. So do know that I appreciate the kind words and help.
I’m like human flypaper to the sicknesses in man. Regardless of putative political affiliations. Which would be a cool superpower if it didn’t absolutely suck so much.
