My dad emailed Becky, Dave, and I today with some late breaking political news out of Alabama.
"There are two people running for public office in Alabama whose names are, no kidding, Young Boozer, and Buster Crapps."
Pause and reflect. Two guys. Young Boozer and Buster Crapps.
Mom and Dad were driving back to Florida from the mountains and saw their campaign signs on the road.
The extent to which this news made my day cannot be over-emphasized. As Becky wrote back, "You cannot make Alabama up!"
Dad said that Boozer is running for state treasurer and his slogan is, "Funny name, serious leadership."
In a really weird way, this makes me miss home. Where else, y'all? I ask you.
Things like this make me love life. You know what I mean? We can only hope that one day their children will marry. Then we would have the house of Boozer-Crapps.
Now, go. Enjoy your day, knowing that such things exist in the world.
(Am posting via my phone but I'll verify with links later. As if I could make this up.)
