A Lot of Good Reasons

The Wife's out of town, time for steak, egg and cheese biscuits! Uh... maybe just one.

It's Friday the 13th, and that means good luck for Tom. I found a new Jimmy Buffett album in the bookstore this morning. My head has been buried in the sand of work and obligation for so long that I didn't even know one was coming out. I just popped in to get A Prairie Home Companion and there it was on the new releases shelf. As a bonus, there was a new Neil Gaiman collection as well. Barbeque for lunch and all is right with the world.

The wife out of town. Lot's of male fantasy about what to do when the wife is gone for a few days. I usually do something that would get me into a lot of trouble if she found out - Order pizza and watch 3 hours of Nemo/Elmo/Thomas the Tank Engine with my 2 kids (aged 2 & 4).

By the way, I believe that "biscuit" is a euphemism for a part of the female anatomy. So be careful when you tell people, "the first thing I kid when the wife left was go downtown for a little biscuit."

Enjoy your biscuit.

There is a new book that might interest you:

The Bancroft Strategy
by Robert Ludlum

I recall a high school classmate with the middle name of "Bancroft". One day in Calculus class, the guidance counsellor came into the room and the following conversation ensued:

"Thomas, I need your middle name for my records."
(laughter in background and Nelson Kersey mumbling "Bancroft - ha ha")
"I'm sorry Thomas" says the GC
"no problem" says an unfazed Thomas.
