Exhibit A: I pick up All*You magazine every month. If you have this month's (April 22) issue, turn to page 36. The second woman from the left? I swear she is my twin:

Exhibit B: Tonight we went out to dinner. Nothing fancy. Less than 20 bucks for the four of us. We pull into the driveway and I casually mention, "You know, our neighbor probably thinks I never cook."

He turns eleven on Thursday, ladies. He is already 5'1" which is slightly taller than his twelve year old brother. He's going to be tall. And dark.

Sign- ups will be announced soon for the first round of interviews of potential wives. If you think those auditioning for American Idol had it rough...
Well, just look at the prize you'll be getting.
