    One Embarrassing Story?

    I have long, luscious, highly unkempt hair. I'm talking like 2 inches of split ends at any given time. Normally this isn't a big deal. Normally, I let it go for about 4 months and then get the 'ol kitchen scissors out and lob off about two inches.

    But I'm normally not getting married. Let's set the stage. It's 2016. It's May in New Orleans. It's 4 am, and I'm sitting on the front porch still drinking beer with the boys. I know my wedding is now in 13 hours, and I know I'm supposed to get a hair cut in the morning (probably at the super cuts down the street). I am 100% sure I can be hungover and still get a haircut. 

    Anyway, the pictures from our wedding look like my wife married a swamp creature. Every time anyone in the family looks at them, they love to force a big 'ol embarrassment pill down my throat. Get a hair cut. But only when it counts.

    One Embarrassing Story?

    One night, in high school, me and a friend were in my first Toyota pickup truck and we were talking to some girls on the side of the road that we knew. We were done talking and wanted to go back down the road the opposite direction, so I thought it would be cool spin out, and slide the back end around doing a 180. I spun the tires, got the back end flipped around, only to find the front end of the truck barely missing a telephone pole, but then hit the guide wire that anchored the pole. We stopped dead in our tracks and it left a dent on the front corner of my truck. The girls weren't too impressed either.

    One Embarrassing Story? 
    Once in High School, I started a rivalry football game at outside linebacker. Because I was starting, I invited all my friends and family. My job was to watch for people running the ball or drop back and cover for a pass. On the 3rd play, after a successful tackle no less, the quarter back dropped back to pass so, I did, too. Then he decided to keep the ball and run with it. I met the all-american quarterback in the middle of field and instead of making the tackle, he faked right and I fell flat on my face. I was immediately benched and only got in to long snap on punts for the rest of the game. It was then I decided I loved riding bikes!
