Let Me Just Check With My Wife
After a year of marriage, I am still discovering the hidden benefits to holy matrimony. Of course there is all the cliched advantages like someone to talk to, share stuff with, and received support from, but I am talking about much more selfish bonuses here. For example, I am a sucker for a good salesman and I could never before get out of a purchase. When I say I am a sucker, I mean it. I am left totally powerless by a good salesman, but now I have a new shield, or rather, deflector.
I went in to a tanning studio yesterday (take a minute... roll your eyes... okay) because we are headed to Maui at the end of the month and I don't want to look like Casper. Now, this guy wasn't a great salesman, but I just don't know how to say no. So, now I say, "I like what your selling here, but I have to check with my wife." It is an awesome way out of this situation. I know inside he is calling me a wuss, but there is no comeback to it. They just accept it! Is it bad to shamelessly use my wife as a deflector in her absense?

Hockey Season Starts!
It is that time of year again. The mercury is sinking, leaves are falling and now the puck is dropping. My beloved Canucks started their season off on the right foot tonight with a 3-1 victory in a near-empty Joe Louis Arena. Much to Carrie's chagrin, I will be spending most of my Saturday nights watching hockey. I am hopeless!
It should be quite the season. There have been lots of changes around the the league. It is unpredictable!

Well, here you have it: Waterton 2006. It was a little less crazy than last year (i.e. no one had to leave the game table and no one was accused of ruining the whole weekend for everyone.) Big 2: Boxhead Edition was dropped for the less intense Balderdash and later L.
We didn't see any bears, but that wasn't without trying. We didn't go as far as to make a steak suit; serenading was our weapon of choice. Nick's version of Michael Jackson's hit Man in the Mirror, Bear in the Mirror was certainly a highlight. Actually any song that could remotely fit "bear" into the lyrics was sung in the van to and from Cameron Lake. But it wasn't enough to coax any bears into sight.
Nick was certainly back to himself on the golf course. I will leave it at that.
Thanks to Kevin and Tina for another wonderful weekend!
