Boxers 'n' Briefs: Showing Their True Color(ado)s.

Greetings from Scenic Denver!

Ok, actually, I am no longer IN scenic Denver, but a was just a few short hours ago. Although, those "short" hours turned out to be rather "long" (more on that later).

I was in Denver for a business trip, and figured it would be a good chance to meet up with some Mile High 'boxers. After a flurry of emails, preboxed chose for our meeting a place called "My Brother's Bar." So I drove to the address she gave me, and there is no sign out front. Nothing. Just a door, and a few people milling about. I go in, and the place is packed. And loud. And dimly lit. And perfect. It turns out that this bar was once a hangout for Jack Kerouac, and the place was just dripping with "personality". I glanced around, not sure who I was looking for, and a rather surly looking waiter approached me, and asked if I would like to be seated. I said I was looking for someone, and he said "Oh, are you Mark?" and proceeded to pretend to do armpit farts. He went on to explain, while I was guffawing, that he had no idea why he was doing this, but that the people at the back table had told him to.

I went back there, and joined preboxed and murmur, as well as some other local boxers, Natural Woman and Tie-Dye Gal. We did exchanges, solved PTs, passed cooties, ordered some beer and food, and generally had a wonderful time! After a while, preboxed and I went out to do a little evening/night boxing - I couldn't have asked for a better evening! So thank you all for a great evening, and it was a pleasure meeting you all! And there - I TOLD you if you bought me a beer, I would mention you in Boxers 'n' Briefs!

1) We altoid with the idea of using mint tins.

2) Letterdetoxing.

3) Maintaining the status quo.

4) Hokey Smokeys!

5) Take this job and love it!

6) Pilling me softly with his swabs.

7) Choosing just the right word.

8) Congratulations!!!!

9) We wanna see the video!!

10) THIS is what it is all about.

11) Checking up by checking off.

12) A different kind of proposal.

13) Snaking around.

14) 476 posts later, GT decides on a word.

15) Spam scam.

My flight home from Denver was a nightmare. The flight was booked solid, and I got a middle seat. Now, I am not a small guy, but the guys on both seats next to me MADE me look like a small guy. I had to cross my arms across my chest the whole way home, because they had various parts "spilling over" the armrests. And I swear, one of the guys had eaten Mexican food earlier that didn't agree with him.

But I am home now, back to my family, and all is once again right with the world.

Oops! Sorry, shiloh... my goof. All fixed now.

And thanks, Mr Yuk... sometimes I wonder if people find some of these as funny as I do - good to see I am not alone in my wackiness!

"Well...you know...this HAS to make it on Wassa's blog, you know."
