My wife is a fun person to be around. She’s intelligent, pleasant, adept at conversation, and has a great sense of humor — she’s fun.
But I wouldn’t call her funny. Sorry if that sounds rude, but she’s just normally not all that funny.
So you can imagine my surprise when I walked into the room today and found her giggling to herself while typing on the computer. I asked what was so funny, and she answered, “Holly left our computer signed in to her blog.”
My wife was pulling a practical joke. And a good one at that. She wrote and published an entire blog post, complete with photos, on Carson and Holly’s blog. And it was funny. Very funny, I thought.
So funny, in fact, that I linked to it from my blog. But the “No-Fun McNeals” (as the entire community of Geita refers to them) deleted the blog post almost immediately. I was very sad. [And that’s why the link in the previous post is no longer working.]
But to prove that my wife did a very funny thing, I’m publishing on my blog the post that she sneakily penned as Holly. Here it is:

I feel like we don’t talk about our heroes enough. We look at, think about, and admire these great people from afar, but rarely tell others about them. The following are my heroes, the ones who just never give up, regardless of what flies in their way. Love them the way I do.
Nacho Libre — monk turned unlikely pro wrestler to raise money for orphans and to get a little taste of the glory. Beautiful.
Lex Luther — after all those years losing to Superman, you’d think he’d quit. But NEVER!
This Chinese guy — He risks life and limb crossing a flooded street, yet still has his wits about him enough to protect his hair from further rain damage.
And finally, hamsters — the way the go around in that wheel for hours on end, not even resting for a sesame seed. I wish I could be that committed to my exercise.
These are my heroes. Who are yours?
