So, typically on Friday’s we cheat and instead of writing a post, we post a comic or link to a funny video. But it was surprisingly hard to find anything good about guy friends. I found a quote that read, “Good friends will help you bury a body. Best friends bring their own shovel and

I read an interesting quote the other day. “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”  As I didn’t know who said it, I typed it in to the ole internet and “voilà”, Jim Rohn motivational speaker was attributed with this quote. As the picture associated with the quote

It’s hard to make new friends as an adult. So, I think there needs to be a friend finder app. Kind like a dating app except with out the sex. Instead of man seeking woman for “good times” “wink, wink,” it’d be guy seeking guy for “hanging out fun.” When you’re a kid, you’re surrounded

I try not to be one of the paranoid people who over-reacts to current events. I haven’t gone out and bought a gun, I don’t have 3 years worth of food stock-piled in my house, and I don’t own a haz-mat suit. But as I head to New York City for training I have had

The other day I invited Joe A. to join me cross-country at a Seahawks football game. Because of some lame excuse (family), he had to decline. So I texted my wife “Joe bailed. Pansy!” and she immediately replied, “Wuss.” Three things caught my attention. First my wife called Joe a wuss. I laughed. Second, it

Once in a blue moon, I end up in the company of a stripper. I’m not generally that kind of guy. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy looking at the curve a woman as much as the next guy. It’s just that I think too much to enjoy strip clubs. Strip clubs are like Disneyland.

I have never been a fan of pit-bulls, or to be more precise pit-bulls with bad owners. And as pit-bulls aren’t required to wear color coded collars showing their owners competence level, they all scare me. As I am a big guy, I have never personally feared for myself with regards to a pit-bull. Not

I refuse to answer the phone these days. No, it’s not another of my Big Brother phobias. It’s election season and we are being inundated with robo-calls. More annoying than the carpet cleaning specials or the solar panel sales call. Does a recording of a candidate interrupting dinner really make someone want to vote for

All around the world there are interesting and scary things happening every day. As I watch the news at night I am constantly reminded we have it pretty good here in the old US of A. I saw this comic and thought it summed up just how good we have it. And I’m sure even

I am a die-hard Seattle Mariners and Seahawks fan. These days, people understand the Seahawks allegiance as we are the reigning Super Bowl Champions. No one really understands my undying loyalty to the Mariners. What can I say? I’m a fan, which means that I currently think that the Seahawks will repeat as Champions (semi-rational

I was hanging out in the mall a couple of weeks ago and the horror of the time of year struck me. Not Halloween, I like Halloween, it’s the beginning of the holiday season. Without looking at a calendar, I know it’s the holiday season because the stores have Christmas decorations. Christmas, for Christ’s sake!

Last week I wrote about wedding season and the pressures on newlyweds. This week I saw this in the mall. Enjoy.

Kids are expensive. Crazy expensive. You hear estimates all the time like “$250,000 a kid” but even that staggering number seems low. Diapers and formula, turn into cute little toddler clothes and cheerios, and all the sudden you’re buying your son a beer. Cash has hemorrhaged from my wallet for sports, college, eating out, and
