Coming To The Home

This is going to be the quickest blog ever today. I have approximately 47 million things to do today before I go home for Labor Day weekend. But I thought I would share a few things.

Apparently my car needs every single part replaced. I took it to a shop today to get the basic oil, lube, and filter change and they called me back and informed me that I also probably need to get a new horn, different radio buttons, a shorter antenna, and faster power windows. They were more than happy to give me prices for all of the above. I straight up went crazy on the guy. I did. I was one of those crazy guys that you read about in books. I told him that I just want my oil changed and that would be all, thank you. He congratulated me on not being the company's one millionth sucker and hung up the phone. After saying this, you would be unwise to take the over on my car completely blowing up within a month.

I'm going home this weekend. The Bethalto Homecoming is calling my name. Also Six Flags, my niece's birthday party, Gilligan's, Roma's, my older sister's house, and possibly Andy's parents' house. A lot of inanimate objects are calling my name. Impressive.

Ha! Spell check does not recognize Bethalto as a proper word. Apparently blogspot has never been to the beer tent and been hit on by high school health teachers. The Bethalto Homecoming is right up there with the running of the bulls, Super Bowl, being a contestant on a game show, and punching William Shatner in the face that everyone should experience in their lifetime before they die.

Listen to yours truly tonight on the webcast of the Southern Illinois Miners game doing some color commentary. Your playoff bound Southern Illinois Miners!

Anyway, that's all I got today. Have a fun and safe weekend. Try not to work because ya know, it's Labor Day. That makes absolutely no sense. Later!

My house is yelling the loudest, so come there first! I will eat a funnel cake at the Homecoming for you tonight, and let it know you're on your way!

I honestly didn't know the Bethalto Homecoming was a nationally recognized event. Go figure!

Guess that's why B-town residents have taken to calling Homecoming the "World's Fair." That one threw me! Can't wait to see you at the b-day party. Sorry I had to be the only sibling not "coming home."
