POC Blog

The random technotheolosophical blogging of Reid S. Monaghan

This is going around a bit - so why not

  1. Plant a bunch of churches
  2. Perform both my daughter's weddings to decent men
  3. Stay married to my wife
  4. Write a big thick book - I mean a really big, thick one - not a boring one, but one with some girth
  5. Teach the gospel to some of my friends' kids
  6. See Va Tech win a national title in football - and not fall into idolatry
  7. Own a Harley
Seven things I cannot do
  1. Speak Esperanto - but I know those who have attempted to learn

  5. Wear pants with a 32 inch waist
  6. Travel through worm holes to other galaxies
  7. Stop eating pizza
Seven things that attract me to my spouse

  3. How cute she is coaching soccer
  4. She is smokin good lookin
  5. She is kind to our girls when they are sick...and me too.
  6. She has a sharp mind
  7. She accepts my complexities

  3. Using the word "Jacked" with 5 different meanings
