Being nearly forty years old, I have a long and storied history. Suffice it to say that in my time I've been a sailor, a laborer, a cubicle drone, a gamer, a writer, a tutor, a teacher, an editor, a dad, a big brother, a McWorker, a dirtbag, a boyfriend, a husband, an ex-husband, an undergrad and a grad student. I have seen the Far East, the Far West and points in-between. I once owned a horse, but he didn't like me very much. I've been the sole male member of a lesbian softball team. I once nearly cost the US Navy several million dollars because I played hooky from work. I allowed my car to be repo'd a decade ago and never bothered to get another. I hate wearing shoes, so most of the time I don't. I have smoked pot exactly twice in my life, and I can best sum up the experience with the word "meh." I'm argumentative but not unfriendly; I'm smart but I still marvel at the intellect of others.
