According to my wife (“Pandora”) every story I’ve ever told features a few consistent elements:
- it never starts at the beginning
- it always involves exaggeration, hyperbole and fanciful reframing of the facts
- it is usually funnier when I tell it than when it actually happened.
You have been warned.
So to say “Let’s Start At the Very Beginning” would be a lie. I never do. I’ll start where I am and work outward from there.
But I also want you to know that, as of this writing, some stuff has already happened. I’ll try to catch you up as fast as I can, without giving the good parts short shrift.
