Did I ever tell you about the Halloween contest I attended at a tavern near my college, and Uncle Jessie from The Dukes of Hazzard won? Only problem: he wasn’t dressed up, wasn’t part of the contest. He was just sitting at the bar having a beer after a long day of work at the plant. Easily one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.
Even odder note: my wife (whom I never knew while attending the same university) was there that night. We may have spoken to one another. I was telling this story to some friends over for dinner when her draw dropped, and she told me she was there. Crazy, eh?
