I’ve told the story dozens of times, and I’ll never get tired of it. Here I was, about to be a first-time dad (so, you know…a while ago), nervous and excited…and our time was, well…delayed by a very long and delayed labor, a pizza delivery, and a transfer from home to the hospital. So kind […]

They seriously could have shot two hours of Robert Duvall’s and Michael Caine’s characters warding off salesmen with their shotguns from their front porch and it STILL would have been great. Really. Actually, […]
