I know I’d never be me without the security of your loving arms. (‘Have You Seen This Man?’ Week 27)
(This blog is part of an ongoing weekly series on weight loss. But you knew that, right?)
Some days you just can’t plan for things.
It’s like Burns said, “The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley.”
There are just some periods of time that feel like a perfect storm of shite.
And then, there are astronomical alignments of awesome.
Last week, I took a little hit to the momentum train. It was kinda expected. You’re cruising along, and then BAM! Without warning, something happens and you’ve been derailed. The worst times are when you can’t figure out what the hell happened.
Well, I have a small confession. I know what happened.
He was once described as "holding down the XY...both generations...and chromosomes." Brad smiled at the appropriately geeky compliment.
Brad talks for a living. Incessantly.
You've probably heard Brad's voice at least twice in your life and never even knew it, because Brad's voice is heard on everything attached to a speaker.
One day, you may be lucky enough to be near Brad, and then you'll hear him even without a speaker.
Somewhere in the world, he's probably talking right now, and that's oddly comforting.
He could be talking somewhere, and yet could be sleeping at the same time.
*mimes 'mind blown'*
What Will Rogers said about liking the weather in Oklahoma could apply to someone who said they've never heard Brad's voice: "Just wait."
Computer tech, comic book collector, pop culture nerd, and avid gamer, Brad covers about every sub-culture cliché known to man, and can still sound like the don't-dare-call-him-coolest hipster to ever wear clothes ironically. Now that's irony for you.
Brad lives most of his life in a box, yet was not actually the inspiration for the Alice in Chains song. That was a point that needed clarifying.
Brad loves what he does, and does what he loves, with his beautiful wife Katie always by his side. Except when she's at work. Then she's not quite by his side.
Got a minute? Read what he has to say. Or give him a listen below.
