First of all, Gary and I agree that Priceline.com might be the greatest internet invention ever. Second, our overnight babysitter has been written into (and later out of) our will. Third, we don't give a rat's patootie HOW depressing John Prine tunes might be when listened to for two hours straight because his warm-up guy at the State Theater show, Paul Thorn, was worth it.
Are you thinking about starting a family? Start setting aside an overnight babysitter's fund now. It's probably not tax deductible but it's WAY cheaper than marriage counseling or what it would cost to have one parent in prison and the other one in a psychiatric hospital.
