I'm only realizing in the last few posts that 'idiot' is a current, and not a former. I guess I thought he had to be in the past with a title like that!

My 18th is coming up next week. Mine knows how to celebrate though.

Having a happy wife is worth more than any of the items on this list.

We all know, if the wife isn't happy, no one is happy!
