Captain of the High School Swim Team or Maybe County Commissioner

Here are the reasons why I should do this: contributions are tax deductible, sleep late on Sunday, choice of two sides, king of this whole town.

What I had to do to get here: for an entire day give up meat and chicken but not fish, swing the big hammer hard enough to ring a bell, sleep late on Sunday, spend all night studying.

How long I expect to stay: waiting for the call-up to the majors, until the cows come home, I’ll find the exit eventually, no place else to go.

The ways my participation benefits others: can always be worse, not much to it but at least it’s forgettable, didn’t realize I was actually doing anything, if not me then you.

Tuesday is Tan Pants Day.

    Visualize. Actualize. Realize.

    If I’m ever re-educated by a latter-day Red Guard, this will be my answer guide.

    They won’t be happy. They’ll make an example of me.

    Is Tan Pants Tuesday weekly? Or annual? Were I Deputy to your Commissioner, would I be Barney Fife?

    I feel like whistling.
