Who is that goofy kid?

“Sean?” they ask me. “You sure stay in a lot of hotels, how do you keep going?” And I always answer: “My wife, she holds a high-powered rifle pointed at my head.” But also: caffeine, found in the smooth silky taste of Midnight Shift coffee—locally roasted.

I wish I knew a baby who wanted a ball glove.

This will never replace my Dixieland Stampede boot mug, but it ain’t bad. #branson
