"It's a bit low", the missus said when I told her I was going to write a sort of online diary in my blog.
" Well you're not exactly important are you? You are not even interesting"
"I mean, to random people on the street. Why don't you write something instructive and informative?"
"What about?" I asked.
"About something you know well. Something that would interest the general public. Something they can benefit from."
I racked my brains.
"Like a drinking guide?"
She rolled her eyes.
"Alright, smarty pants, go write that diary. But don't be surprised if you see your readership dwindle to single digits."
Ha! She doesn't know it is in single digits already. Anyway, here goes.

"Have you seen Hangover?" my sister asked me.
Seen hangovers? Me? Has the captain of the Titanic seen icebergs? Has Genghis Khan seen horses? Has W.J.Clinton of Little Rock, Arkansas, seen interns? Of course I have. But I said all this in my mind, because my sister, my kid sister, the one whose pigtails I used to pull and dolls I used to break, is a full fledged dentist, licensed to put sharp, whirring equipment in my mouth. I give her LOTS of respect.
So I told her that I had not only seen them, I had experienced them too. Though not with the regularity I would have liked, but that is because of the missus who refuses to believe that alcohol is a medicine.
"Not that hangover, you twit, the movie", she said.
(There was a little side dialog happening between my sister and my wife, if you're interested in my personal life. I forget the exact words, but it went something like this
Sis: (To Missus): Is he ALWAYS like this?
Missus: YOU should know. He is YOUR brother.
Sis: I know. Useless to hush it up now. You know, you should fix this.
Missus: YOU fix it. You are the one he's really afraid of.
Sis: Hmm. Send him over on Wednesday afternoon for a dental check up.
Chilling, if you know what I mean.)
And so, the missus and I saw the movie called "Hangover" last night. It's brilliant! One of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Don't miss it.
