only car, and he took the bus because it was cheaper. (That might
get old fast...) He said he was doing really well but then said,
“I got board and decided to take another wife... uh hum, I mean
another job.”

Watch it youngster...

Although it is funny being from Utah, and the stereotypical ideas
people have about Utah and polygamy. When my sweet wife and I
travel (rarely) to far away places, I’ve even introduced her
saying, “This is my ~first~ wife.” It’s funny to see people’s
reactions. (And yes... for those wondering, she is my only
