I had to drag my ass out of bed and go to work despite being sick today. On the way out the door my wife said, “Thanks for making money honey!” to which I started to reply, “Thanks for giving me something to spend it on besides…” I has wanted to say sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll but hesitated, given that the children were there. As I searched for some way finish this without garnering a lot of questions, my wife said, “go on?” in that way that makes you think twice before opening your mouth. As I was about spit out the words Fast Living, my son said, “just say bread, dad.”
Laura Palumbo, thanks for giving me something to spend it on besides bread!
