I've never tripped either. I just sometimes kick a raised edge of concrete to show other people who are less graceful than I that there is a tripping hazard right 'HERE'.

Yeah, and sort of mime tripping, just to reinforce the point.

Precisely. I'm not clumbsy, I'm a good samaritan.

Haha, yeah my life is filled with very odd stories. Like for instance, my first wife is now married to my best friend. And no I don't mean ex-best friend. He is still my best friend, and I must say, I couldn't have asked for a better man to step-father my children.

Then there is the my current fiancee, she and her ex-husband have been separated for around 8 years now. The two... ummm, well 'gentlemen' she was involved with during which time Tony (her ex) did not like much at all, and definatelly did not want around his kids. Then when she and I got together the first time he came over to pick the kids up I went outside, shook his hand and introduced myself, and we've gotten along famously ever since. Quite frankly, I think I was someone who he respected, and thought would at least be a good father-figure in the house, unlike the other two candidates she'd been interviewing. So he decided to play nice. He was the guy who helped me put my HT room together. In the pictures of my room in the early stages, there's a guy walking past the camera who I pointed out as 'Tony'.... that's him.

Now for the really interesting part.... I address him as her 'ex' because it's just easier that way. You see they're still married. They have lived in separate houses for 8 years and have obviously seen other people, but they never got divorced because with her owning her own business she couldn't afford insurance for herself and their kids, so they've stayed married all these years to keep insurance on herself and the kids. So in essence, I'm shacked up with his wife, and he comes over to help me do stuff to his old house (we're laying tile in the studio out in the back of the house this week)...

You don't hear things like that everyday.

Maybe it's an Indiana thing??? Sounds like the making of a sitcom! Wait a minute, I have an ex-wife who married a friend of mine. WTF!

You can't fool me. I can see the end of this little movie plot you have going a mile away. Tony is going to mysteriously die in a horrible, flaming, dental record destroying, car crash. Then you both collect the insurance, run off to Mexico where you adopt a pet lizard named "Flicky", meet up with the real Tony and give him his share.

It gets complicated because your fiancee's secret son with Tony, hunts you down in Mexico, blackmails you, and then in a surprising show of cruelty, shoot's Tony, his own father, when you don't pay up. You get really scared and pay the blackmail money only to learn that the son has run off to Brazil with the really, real Tony. This is discovered when you go to hide 2nd fake Tony's body and the home made, bee's wax makeup has melted from his face in the hot Mexican desert sun.

However, it all works out because on the now dead 2nd fake Tony's body you discover a cell phone with a timer counting down. 2nd dead fake Tony suspected he might get double crossed and rigged the pre-arranged money bag with a bomb set to detonate in 48 hours if he didn't call to disarm it.

You two, using your last bit of cash that was hidden in your pet lizard's house, bribe a corrupt Mexican telephone company worker to access the GPS tracking on the number set to be dialed on 2nd dead fake Tony's cell phone before the bomb goes off. You then fly down to arrive just minutes after the bomb goes off in the hut that real Tony's now dead son is using to hide in the jungle. You fight off snakes, killer spiders and sexually aroused monkeys while you rummage through the body parts with a metal detector to find the safety deposit box key that they transferred all the money too and retrieve all the multi-stolen insurance money.

Sorry, Micah, you can't fool me. You need a wayyyyyyy less obvious plan.

And oh yes, Don't forget! Real Tony will still be out there!!!
