Questions and Answers
People keep asking me if things are different now that I’m married and honestly the only thing different in my life is that I have to answer that question. The go to small talk at the office is now “how’s married life?” replacing the previous favorite which was simply telling me how many days there were until Friday. I suppose it could be worse but I’m not a fan of small talk. At least the marriage question has been kept to the kitchen and the elevator and kept out of the men’s room, I hate idle chit chat most of all when it takes place in the men’s room. As a general rule any time my pants are open I’m not interested in talking. Since I have pants on at the moment I’ll tell you that married life is great because it’s exactly the same as single life except people give us presents. Had I known that spending eight minutes in front of a minister was all I had to do to get stuff I would have done it many times before.
Let me also use this pants wearing time to share a new find. Have you been to Rantasaurus Rex yet? They are relatively new but they have made a nice splash on their arrival with a simple but fun approach; they give a topic and let the readers rant on it as they see fit. I got an email from them this morning telling me that they were posting something I submitted about a bad date. It’s something I’ve talked about here before and it’s one of those stories my family should probably skip, but if you’re not related to me click here and then check out the rest of the site. If you need to get something off of your chest they may be able to help you.
