But I like the job I have now....

It has come to my attention (thanks to my dear wife) that it is time to grow up. Not the "stop pulling your sister's hair" type of grow up, but more along the lines of "get a job... no, a career, you dirty bum!' type of grow up. I am not getting any younger, you know, so it is time to bite the bullet and make some decisions that will determine where we will be in the next fifty- that's five zero, baby- years. Crap!

The three irons in the fire are: 1) Army PA school, the path of least resistance, which would let me shoot things (always a plus); 2) keep applying to dental school (third time is a charm??); 3) roll the dice and apply to medical school. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am the man in the minivan

Well, I thought it would never happen, but the day has come. I am the owner of an overpriced, seven passenger, Japanese piece of poo. There were times in my life when I would have rather burned my eyes out with hot coals than to own a minivan, yet here we are.

The nice thing is that there is a convenient place in the glove box for my testicles. Don't worry, my wife has the keys to the glove box and she has promised to keep them safe.
