Well, it's been a while since my last post, a long while! It wasn't till a couple weeks after my last blog (so long ago) that people informed me that they actually read my blog!! That's kind of scary...in a good way...I guess...but in keeping myself global I come to you from the great state of California, USA where I find the time to re-establish my blog while I'm on business. Funny how I find time to write while I'm away for work but its hard to find the time at home where I should be able to, mind boggling really. Well mabye not.
To say I have been busy would be modest. The fact that I recently got married would explain why I have not had time to do anything... except plan for that very thing. While I give all the credit to my new wife who practically did everything (Ok, she did everything!) I must say that everything went very well, if not way BETTER than expected. The best part was we had no idea what was going on during the reception until we actually got there. Where we awaited an absolutely awesome reception put together by our good friends Andyroo & his wife. This included among many things, a hilarious and unexpected video from JPTH International, which involved him filming random people that he had convinced to congratulate us. (Soooo funny)
The whole evening was amazing but after a few videos/comments I noticed a common theme starting to shape up & one that I did not like the looks of (Note the picture above). It seemed that my wedding reception was the ideal opportunity for my "friends & family" to repay me & have an evening of laughs at my expense. Not that this is anything new for me but the whole night I was verbally beaten like a rag doll as comments ranging from my receding hairline, to things my wife was going to throw out when I went away (here!) & even attacks on my vintage 7-up mesh back hat & hat collection. It was an all out verbal barrage on me and it was in full force. As I started mingling about I found more & more people telling me how they felt bad for me. This concerned me & as the night went on I was lead to 3 conclusions:
- People REALLY don't like my 7up hat...or any of my hats for that matter & especially the female gender!!
- It really seems that people are more then eager to jump at the chance to make fun of me... .interesting...I seem to have offended a few of the new "family" members at one point or another.
- At your wedding reception you are completely & utterly open to public humiliation, especially from your new "family"
As for me, I have since recovered after many nights of weeping & I'am not bitter at all. I also decided to take the high road from all these comments. I'm just glad that I had a pen handy so I could write down all my fans names.
Oddly enough, after returning all their gifts I had just enough for my first year of hair re-growth treatments & 3 new hats... Excellent...
