Aw, Shucks

I just heard from my mom and my dad is out of surgery and fine. It is with mixed emotions that I report that they did not have to give him a peg leg and so he is not about to embark on a career as the Pirate Pastor. That's probably for the best anyway, as he's allergic to birds and one cannot be a proper pirate without a parrot. Anyway, because there is no tale of great harrowing dread to be had with my dad, I instead alert you to the shocking, painful, and a little funny goings-on over at Now I'm Pissed--"Yes, I enjoy a diminished level of clothing. Yes, I enjoy motorcycling." As you all know, I'm regularly flabbergasted at the half-assed way the patriarchy seems to have been thought-out. I'm always sitting behind my desk with my skirt hiked up as far as it will go and wondering, as I enjoy the fresh air, why men, with your genitalia that needs to be a few degrees cooler than 98.6, took pants and left us dresses. Let's just say that the above mentioned post sheds a little light on the possible reason. Also, when I quit my job and become a custom motorcycle builder (not because I want to build motorcycles, mind you, but just so that I can hang out with a wide variety of men with awesome facial hair), I vow today to make my mark on the motorcycle world by coming up with a bug-shield for a little lower on the bike.

Well, shoot. Maybe we can find a way to get someone else to be the pirate pastor. My mom did have a pet bird in high school...

But I am glad your dad is doing fine. In the spirit of all my conversations with him since he found out my religious upbringing, I only wish I could think of a good joke to make about Martin Luther or John Wesley.

Be that as it may, yesterday Huck Finn and I went to a parade with a friend of ours so we could embarass her husband, who is a volunteer firefighter and was in the parade. It was a good parade with three bagpipe bands, and the three of us could barely resist the temptation to yell at the men in kilts, "Are you wearing any underwear?"

I've always thought that men should embrace the skirt. I just can't seem to find one that looks cute on me.

Hell, it worked for the Scots... maybe we should give it a try.
