If you do not know me (I mean, really know me) then there is something you need to understand before you read this blog: I value the truth above everything else... except a good laugh. A good laugh will almost always beat the truth as far as I’m concerned. Everything you read on this blog will be true, somewhat true, or something I made up in an effort to get a laugh. Sometimes I will go on a rant that I don’t really mean (or only kind of mean). Sometimes I will mean what I write only to completely change my mind a year, month, or day later. Such is life. By reading this blog you agree not to get offended by anything I write (or, at the very least, you agree not to tell me or anyone else that you are offended). It is worth noting that my employer does not endorse my blog (or even read it, to tell you the truth). The Wife also does not endorse my blog (though she will read it from time to time). I am not paid to write this... it’s just my way of giving back to the community. I have, and will, touch on a wide range of subjects and will give my opinion on these subjects. Again, most of what I say is for laughs but every now and then I will say what I really think and feel (see my views on Westboro Baptist Cult). How will you know when I’m serious and when I’m trying to get a laugh? You’ll know. And if you don’t know, well... maybe this isn’t the best thing for you to be reading. So, sit back, read and enjoy.

Susie and Mary Ruth getting to meet Anna

Have you ever gotten the question, “If you could have dinner with any 4 people ever, who would it be?” I’m not sure of the number of people, but I say “4”… because, well, I like the number 4. Anyway, like most questions like this, I cheat and pick way more than 4. For the purpose of this post, however, I’ll stick to 4. Maybe tomorrow (or at some later date) I’ll share my other list(s) of dinner companions with you. But my go-to list for a question like this is pretty easy:

PaPa: Mom’s dad who died before I was born. I’d love to get the chance to meet him and talk to him. And it would be nice for him to have a chance to meet his favorite grandchild.

Granny: Mom’s mom who died before Susie was born. It would be nice to let her know we named Susie after her and tell her about Daniel and all of my kids. Of course, I’d also have to let her know we’re building a house out on the farm.

Da: Dad’s dad who died when I was a sophomore in high school. The first thing I’d probably tell him is that I was the starting 2nd baseman on the team when we won State my junior year. I’d also let him know the Braves won the World Series the year he died. Then I’d tell him about The Wife and all of his great-grands.

MaMa: Dad’s mom who died a few weeks before we found out The Wife was pregnant with Daniel. I’d have to start by telling MaMa about Daniel. Don’t get me wrong, she loved Mary Ruth and Susie… but she always wanted me to have a boy. I’m sure she’d get a kick out of him.

That’s right… of all of the people in the history of the world, I’d like to have a meal with my grandparents. Why not? They are the 3 people I’d love to see one more time along with the one person I’ve always wanted to meet.
