Husband of the Year – 2015

Wife: Ouch… my tailbone feels out of whack.

Me: Oh, that’s not good. I can go to Walmart to pick up some whack of you’d like. Is there a particular brand of whack you prefer?

Book Description: The Terrible and Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long Distances

“Why?”

“Because she wants to come back. She would miss us.”

“Why?”

“Because she loves us.”

“Why?”

“Because she does.”

“Why?”

“Um. Let’s practice not talking.”

“Why?”

Have you deleted your Facebook account yet?

I am not addicted to Facebook. I am also not addicted to my phone. Sometimes I intentionally leave my smartphone at home so I can go somewhere without the temptation to check the phone, instant messages, the world wide web, or email. Some people search for places in the world they can travel and not get a cell phone signal. Well… I just go places without my smartphone and it has the same effect.
