Good news/bad news

The good news is tonight my old high school won the Texas state football championship (~400 schools in their division). The bad news is the team they defeated in the championship game was my wife's old high school.

Guess who's sleeping on the couch tonight...

Numbers is hard.

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension
