A Chris is just a Chris
Dinner conversation, or any conversation really, with Stress 1 is always interesting. He's very intelligent. He can talk about anything and never seems out of place. I've always been impressed by that.
One thing that bugs the crap out of me though, is that we always.end.up.in.a.political.discussion. Always.
We could be talking about a band, say Kings of Leon, and somehow that turns to Kings, which turns to Presidents, which turns to "W got a bum rap". It never fails. Politics in 6 degrees.
I love that my boys have their own minds, own opinions and own ideals; but how did I raise such a staunch Republican?! It's hilarious. We're so liberal, and that's what he grew up with, and he's so NOT. It's not so bad except that he doesn't know when to say when. Once he gets on a roll, he will not stop till everyone around him sees his point of view, even if he has to beat it into you, but he refuses to see others points of view. I'm the one who always has to blow the whistle. He would be a great asset to the Republican party, if he didn't get shot by a Democrat. Love that boy.
He's just come out of his own blogging moratorium because he's trying his hand at some article writing in the hopes of turning that into a book. Here's his blog link if you're into reading about politics, conspiracies, and conspiracies in politics. Chris M.
He's always wanted to write a book. All his life. Except it used to be about things like "My summer at my grandparents" and now it's likely to be something in the realm of conspiracy theories. I just love that he's writing again. Anything to keep him from talking to me.
