A shield is up! RED ALERT! Evasive maneuvers! All hand to battle stations! (Sorry for that.) You see, once a mother ship does fire a new little cosmonaut out of her launch bay, I’m afraid a deflector shield is now quite operational. And will be for a what can seem like lightyears. In space, no […]

Don’t they know I want to wrestle with their mom? She always wins, of course. But that’s just because we’ve been together for almost 15 years. And she’s smarter than me.

My Wife Just Texted… #177
