Seattle and Longview

Tomorrow the wife and I take flight to the Northwest for a week. She will finally get a chance to meet more of my friends and family, and hopefully will choose to stay married to me after we return.

I'm very excited to visit my hometown as I haven't been there in what seems like forever. What concerns me though is the smell. See the city of my youth is a small mill town where pulp factories release chemicals into the air that smell of sadness and death. I grew accustomed to it over the years, but now that I've been away for so long I fear it'll make me want to destroy my nasal cavity with a curling iron. Plus I'll have my pregnant wife with me, who's not to keen on bad smells. For whatever reason having a bun in the oven makes women's sense of smell go all over the board.

It should be a fun vacation and the last the wife and I will have before our baby is born. Good food, sightseeing, and visiting friends and family will all be in abundance. I will post when I get back to Dallas.

Until then bloggerland....

"My wife and I just prefer Seattle. It's a beautiful city. Great setting. You open your front door in the morning and the air smells like pine and the sea, as opposed to bus exhaust." - Ron Reagan

I don't believe that statement. This is the woman who married your fartin' ass. I'd wager bad smells is what put you over the top and won her heart.
