Gonna disappear for a few days. That's right, me and the family are going to take a respite: my wife from work and me and the kids from sleeping in late. We've been invited to a destination wedding in the Dominican Republic (you ever notice that destination weddings are never held in Camden, New Jersey?) NOTE: Barb, that is my weekly, gratuitous jab at New Jersey. A state where...you don't live. Which I think pretty much says it all about the alleged "Garden State."
Destination Weddings are fantastic. You get to invite a TON of people, most of whom you probably don't know or even like, but you have to because they're friends (or boss) of your parents. But-here's the beauty part-most of them can't come because it's too far or their passport has been revoked ("Hey, I didn't know that goat was Al Qaeda!!"). Still, they have the decency to send a gift (preferably money).
Hopefully, the soon-to-be bride and groom are happy we're coming, even though we're just friends of their parents. But, hey, I couldn't miss a chance t
Don't worry, though. While I'm swimming in the Pina Colada Lap Swimming Pool, I'll make sure that I have a couple posts right here at Penwasser Place for your reading enjoyment. Of course, they will be repeats. What do you expect? Original material while I'm lying (face down) at the nude beach???
For those of you who may want to rob me while I'm gone, we have a housesitter, my dog isn't coming (screw him. I stepped in dog crap on my way to the pool yesterday), and the Philadelphia Mob is holding their annual Fish-Fry and Garroting Retreat at my place (hey, they paid cash. In unmarked, non-sequential bills. Don't judge me).
See you when I get back!
Hasta proxima semana!
Su amigo viejo,
Oh, one other thing. If you don't see another post from me (beyond the second "repeat"), that means there was probably some sort of coup in the Dominican Republic and I'm being held as some sort of international sex slave (no accounting for taste). If that's the case, I'll get back to you as soon as I can. As soon as I wash up.
