Fun Facts About Colorado
Colorado: A place where it is normal to have a strip club next to a church and where both advertise their services with neon lights. Colorado: A place where it is not uncommon to have shuttle drivers from Thailand, Jamaica, and Afghanistan. Colorado: Probably the only midwestern state that has more Mexican food options than barbecue (to my disappointment). -Anton
Hey Danielle, FYI
We have a wasp in our house, lurking…somewhere. It comes out randomly to ambush us and ruin our dinner and our cleaning up dinner and probably when we sleep tonight (I sleep with my mouth wide open and am terrified). Danielle, we heard that you got stung by a wasp. We did some research on how to get this creature to emerge, and it’s not looking good… -Anton (and Michelle)

Happy Birthday, Bro
My little brother and Michelle’s adopted little brother, Zac, is, without question, one of the coolest kids around. For just turning 12, he’s got the intelligence of a high schooler (if not higher), the reading level higher than most people I went to college with, and an extensive knowledge of all things related to Greek mythology (seriously, I defy you to stump him on any question...

“Anton, sing it!” Michelle has done this to me four times in the past three days. Who cares, right? Me, because I don’t know the words to these songs, so what does she want me to do, awkwardly mouth the words? This dislike stems from a concert I went to a couple months ago with friends to see the band Ludo. I went without knowing every single word to every single song, so I...
