Unfortunately for me, the perfect comeback usually doesn’t come to me until long after the fact. Timing once again wasn’t on my side this past Saturday night while in St. Louis. The comeback I would have liked to have used came to me days later while back at home.


An evening fire on the driveway while with my fiance and future in-laws allowed me to share my less than favorable Boy Scout memories. This unfortunately caused me to realize that many of the things that annoyed me as a kid concerning the great outdoors still annoy me, now as an adult.
