I have always been a bit goofy; I have actually made a career of my goofiness. Now and then I see pictures of my upbringing and realize I have always been this way. I was recently sent some pictures from an old friend that he came across. When I was younger, I worked at Hardees in Mandan, North Dakota with a bunch of other loosely wired individuals. We would gather and party and claim we were from a rare Swahili tribe.

I remember having board meetings, which were just an excuse to get hammered, and elect a board of directors and president. We had a secret greeting which was grabbing your crotch, putting up 2 fingers and puffing your cheeks like a beaver. My friend Robert was cleaning out his house the other day and found these gems from one of our meetings, and he had to share them with me. I laughed so hard at what fools we were, then I remembered that I still am that fool. This was me 30 years ago and yes, that is my young wife as well.
