Mr. Lisa O

There are a lot of upsides to having a successful spouse. The obvious one is that when my cyclical business is in a dip, I won’t be skipping meals.

It’s easier to be a parent when there’s another more qualified parent nearby to do the heavy lifting.

Sometimes there are benefits that can’t be quantified. The best ones seem to come out of nowhere.

Not too long ago my wife’s colleague invited us to his wedding. He’s a successful attorney and an all-around nice fellow, but we’re not close.

Had I not been Lisa’s “plus one” there’s no way I would have seen this fun table card with my new surname and anglicized version of my given first name.

Now I know how James Brolin, aka Mr. Barbara Streisand, feels. Undoubtedly, pretty good.
