Attack of the Double Cheeseburger

My friend, Mandy, got one of those books with lots of "get to know you" questions. So we are going to try an experiment this evening and see how it goes. She's going to ask me a question and I'm going to answer truthfully... but I'm going to do it here!

I don't know the questions before they are asked.

Question #1... What is one mistake no one will let you forget?

Shortly after I got married my wife and I got a small apartment. The bathroom was so small my shower/toilet chair wouldn't fit in. For the first couple years we were married I had to rely on bed baths, and, believe it or not, I did my bowel movements in the living room. You see, I'd roll a shower chair into the next room where Kristie would place a large bucket to catch my well, my cannonballs. I would sit there and watched television for half an hour like king of my castle.

One evening, she rolled me into the living room just at the beginning of my favorite show to do one of my favorite activities... taking a post-double-cheeseburger dump. After a minute or two things were progressing nicely, and I was enjoying the show. I made a rather large deposit in just a few minutes. The next moment Kristie walks into the room with the bucket in her hand and said "Sorry it took me so long, mom called on my cell phone and... oh my gosh... what did you do!"

Apparently the television show is so good I had completely forgotten to wait until Kristie placed the bucket strategically. There was a large brown steaming cheeseburger in my living room.

The good news is that we're still married... that's true love!

I pointed to two old drunks sitting across the bar from us and told my friend, "That's us in 10 years".

He said "That's a mirror, dip-shit!"

Sunfyre's Google Glass Fundraiser (a.k.a. shameless begging)

Well, Google Glass went on sale today for a limited time to the general public.

Unfortunately, I can't exactly spare $1500 right now.… Commence shameless begging!

I try not to play the "help the disabled guy" card.  It goes against my nature. But in this case, I figured I'd make an exception (at least this is how I'm rationalizing it in my own head).

Google Glass has amazing potential for people like me. I can't use my arms or legs any longer. I use my voice recognition software to type, design websites, write articles and marketing plans for clients.

In the era of smart phones, they aren't very friendly to people like me. Most of them can't be navigated with a mouse, and even Apple's Siri doesn't do a great job with voice activation. First, you have to press a button just to get her attention.

but with this device, which connects through my android phone, I'd be able to read email and navigate my basic telephone functions with wearable g…
