I'm a super poster!!!!

Ever since I said I was going to quit blogging, I've found myself thinking of a lot more blog post ideas. I've also found that since I quit, I've felt a lot less pressure to post anything. I can't seem to get myself to totally quit. Slow down, yes, but not quit. I've like the Brett Farve of posting.

OK, maybe not, but here I am. Not being retired from blogging.

Let me get you up to date on my brewing activities because they have been plenty.

Tonight, I once again pulled off an evening few would be able to do. I did all of the following without my wife's help as she was out supporting the family:
I fed 4 kids (corn dogs, sweet corn, corn chips, see a theme here. They love that type of stuff)
I entertained 4 kids until the Olympics came on. Then I made popcorn for a snack. I vacuumed up a lot of popcorn my 1 year old dispersed.
I got 4 kids to bed. PJs, stories, brushed teeth, potty, everything.
I brewed two beers. An American Pilsner lager and and Czech Pilsner. One extract and one partial mash.
I sanitized 4 carboys.
I racked a 10 gallon batch of beer to two 5 gallon carboys and dry hopped them.
I emptied the dishwasher.
I filled the dishwasher.
I cleaned my 10 gallon carboy.

It was a busy night and I'm ready to finally drink a homebrew and relax.

So, I was thinking to myself that after a night like this, I'm pretty super. And that reminded me of a story.

When I was young (around 4-6 years old) I loved Superman. Who didn't? One day I was playing in our basement, and I decided to declare my admiration of Superman to the world by writing a bold statement in red crayon on the white basement wall. I wrote:

I love Supper man

My mom was not amused in the least. She also pointed out that I wasn't a very good speller. But, in the end, it turned out to be prophetic. Well almost. I don't love Superman as much now days, but I sure do love supper, man.

I don't know what your mother was talking about. You just forgot a comma. That's more grammar than spelling.

Yeah, well the rage in her eyes told me not to get too technical.

I think that's a pronouncement that we can all get behind.

Maybe I'll go home and write it on my basement wall... you know, see what the wife thinks.

I just wrote, "I love supper, man!" on my office wall in permanent red sharpie.

You thought your mom was mad, I just got fired.

(I kid! I didn't get fired; I got high-fived.)

You will always be my Superman, and boy do I love it when you are also my supper man. You really are always super, even when you're not brewing.
