Better Off Without a Wife

Okay, the consensus is that I have forgotten how to take myself out and show myself a good time. This is what happens when after years of marriage you have to learn how to date yourself again.

Then I'll thoroughly take advantage of myself.

Jackson has proclaimed last night's Lakers game "the most fun thing I've ever done in my LIFE," and he has the foam finger to prove it. And Jack has a new Lakers hat, and I have new ammunition with which to provoke derisive chuckling from my Celtics-loving yoga teacher.

It's got bling! And I use that word in the whitest, most suburban, Transformers-watching way possible.
