Good morning party people.
I’ve got two things today. First is the Season 4 Intro Video for the Mystery Hour. It’s actually pretty cool, all credit goes to Nate Black for making it look so awesome.
Plus, here is an article I recently wrote for www.faircitynews.com that appeared Monday. Enjoy.
Springfield, MO—In an effort to inspire and educate the next generation of Springfieldians, Highland Springs Country Club is sponsoring a community-wide ‘Take Your Daughter Aged Wife to Work Day” on Thursday, February 25th. “We couldn’t be more excited about this upcoming day,” explains Highland Springs President Roger “Red” Anderson. “This will be a real opportunity for these young women to experience real work.”
The idea was the brainchild of a late night bull session ripe with cigars and brandy. “Bud was the first one who came up with the idea, and his wife is nearly two generations younger than him,” says member Fred Albatross. “We got to thinking that all of our wives do literally nothing all day, every day, and all of our wives are the same age as our daughters, why not show them what real life is like.”
The day will be nostalgic for banker Gerry Merryweather, “I can remember taking my oldest daughter to the bank with me nearly fifteen years ago. Now I have a chance to do it again with my wife. She’ll be giddy to see all that money.”
The wives are indeed looking forward to the day. “I can’t wait,” says Kimberley Albatross. “I think it will be like a real-life reality TV show. I don’t know most of the work words my husband uses when he comes home. What’s a slush fund?”
Anyone in the Springfield area are invited to join in the day, as long as they are at least 20 years older than their wife. Participants are encouraged to have their wives join them in routine tasks of the day. However, the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce released a statement discouraging participants from allowing their daughter aged wives any real decision making power, “for the best interests of the community.”
