Today's Interruption....

Brought to you by, My Good Friend, Mark!!! I've spoken about him either here or elsewhere before, and if I have time, I'll probably do the linky thing,  however today was about the following;

Me, 5 years ago

Yes, it was an odd year, hence no mustache. I'm not sure if I'm going to shave for 2019 yet, however she who shall not be named may appreciate it, however the call was about him finding this photo.

Great. The man's worth shall we say North of 20 million $$$, and all he has to do on a Saturday is call to tell me he found this pic online. Thanks, Mark! It's not like I have work to do or anything, after all, it's not Tuesday....

He called to tell me that he was bored, and he found this, as he did a search for "Mike Shields Magic Castle Hollywood".  He also came up with a pic of my father, and again, if I have time, I'll post that here or elsewhere.

He opened the conversation with, "I found a pic of you from 20 years ago!!!" No, Mark. Had you checked the timestamp, you would've found that was taken a little over 5 and a half years ago. He stated that I still looked pretty good back then. Well, I look better now, as I'm around 50 pounds lighter, and I've kept it off. 

Not the point, and I'm sure it's way too late to make this a short story.  He hung up and attempted to send me the pic via text. Two problems with that, in reverse order of importance: He didn't know how to do that without hanging up, and even then, he called my landline.

That's right. A man that has more money than I ever will has not figured out that he's been calling my landline for almost 25 years now.

That's my story. Hope you enjoyed it.™
