Next Friday night, Kellie and I will be taking a red-eye flight to San Juan, Puerto Rico, our port of embarkation for a two-week Caribbean cruise. I can’t promise to entertain you with the same sort of mishaps and misadventures that occurred during our trip to Paris last summer, but since we are renting a car, and they do drive on the lefthand side of the road on most of the islands we’ll be visiting, it could get interesting.

Kellie has given me many different nicknames during our 17 years together. When we first met, she frequently called me honey, BFL (boyfriend for life), handsome, prince, or prince charming. As the years wore on, those utterances became less frequent and were slowly replaced with somewhat less endearing terms such as geek, dork, nerd, and the occasional asshole. When she uses the latter term I feel compelled to point out to her that she has made a minor error. I am not an asshole; I have an asshole. She never seems to grasp the difference, and my belaboring the point only seems to reinforce her notion that her original usage was correct.

Kellie likes to compare herself to Winston Churchill as a way of justifying her ritual of stripping down for an afternoon nap. I resist the urge to point out how that comparison fails on just about every other possible dimension she could ever conceive.

Like most husbands and wives, Kellie and I sometimes disagree. Occasionally (too often) a discussion (argument) of the merits of each of our respective positions will ensue. Like most husbands, I’m always wrong.
The picture below is from Laura Patefield’s Oceanside Crossfit website. She was intrigued by the image and asked her crossfitters to supply a caption. Susan Parkhurst was first to post and everyone else figured that she pretty much nailed it.
"Don't you girls see... this, ALL of this, is Kellie's world and I, along with you, are just living in it!!"

In less than three weeks my wife, Kellie, and I will depart for our next vacation: a two-week Caribbean cruise. On some of the islands, they drive on lefthand side of the road. As I have mentioned in another blog, Kellie does not let me drive when we’re abroad. Since Kellie is slightly dyslexic, I’m just a little concerned about my safety. Not to worry though, Kellie has been practicing by driving on the lefthand side of the road right here in Southern California. I’d pray if I wasn’t a heathen.
