I saw a series of stories yesterday about the increasing number of Lasik eye surgeries that have gone a bit awry. I guess there have been enough complaints for that FDA to investigate a bit further. To be honest with you, I always thought this type of surgery was borderline insane. I can list lots of things that make me feel good and bring me pleasure, and you may be surprised to learn that a laser in my eye doesn't crack the top 100. I know any type of surgery can go wrong these days, and I know that most people who have this surgery(including the great Tiger Woods) have nothing but great things to say about this procedure. But come on man, we're talking about a laser to the eye. Lasers are made for light shows and science fiction movies. And the last time I checked, glasses are still very accessible, and they give you much more personality than a laser all in your eye.

My beloved Washington Wizards bounced back and won last night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. All is well with the world when the Wizards are victorious. I have a big of a bounce in my step. I have more fun writing my articles, sex is better, sleep is sounder, etc. This is why I am glad I have a son, because I can pass this type of passion about sports teams down to him. I'm not saying I couldn't do that with a daughter because I probably could...but its just more rewarding with a son, especially considering I was that young passionate child myself. Although I'm sure my lady thinks its more fanaticism than passion..OK I'm rambling now.

As I get closer to marriage, I become much more mindful of the importance of staying married. I got in a discussion last night about divorce and its effects, and it just brought back some of the bad feelings I had surrounding my parents divorce. Back when I was going to therapy, my therapist said to me that you never really get over divorce. She said that some folks do their best to suppress their emotions, others fear commitment, but rarely are people completely honest about how divorce has effected them. I consider myself lucky because I have talked to my therapist, my mother, my father, my brother and even my girlfriend who is also a product of divorce, about my feelings on this matter. And I don't even think I'm being negative here, I just want to be sure that when I do decide to take that leap, I do it once and I get it right. That's not too much to ask right? I could write about two months worth of entries on divorce and call it "The Divorce Chronicles"..I'm rambling once again..

Good luck, man . . . no one wants their marriage to end in divorce . . .that is why so many people are just NOT getting married nowadays. It's a sad day indeed!
