In this one I tell you about an exciting and flattering message I received from Domino's Pizza, the threat of a horrendous heat wave moving our way and what that might mean for our lawn care regimen, the upcoming iCarly reboot and some weirdness it led me to, a service that allows a person to watch unlimited Minor League baseball games (crazy!), a …

At the website I recently published a piece where I re-told one crazy story from each of my four West Virginia jobs. You know the stoopid early jobs you have when you're young and dumb? You can read it here. I had a hard time choosing which particular tale to tell, because there was SO MUCH ridiculousness. And so, in this episode I tell one alterna…
