S1 E92 — Shh … Secrets Husbands Try to Keep to Ourselves

Bam!! We rushed around in panic.  The deadline crashed into us before we were ready.  If we didn’t leave now we’d risk everything …

The Tau of Steves: What You Don’t Know Could Fill a Book

“5”  Steve Howey, 42: “You’re feeling pulled in different directions at once internally, and this makes it more challenging to decide how to spend your hours.” Cancer


Yea! It’s Friday again and welcome to Episode 92 in the first season of ”My 1-Year Natural Experiment” on this 27th day of September in the fall of 2019.  

We were down to minutes left before we had to hit the 405 and catch our flight to Norway, factoring in what could go wrong according to Murphy’s law.

There’s TSA security and traffic and customs delays, if any, at LAX international terminal.

I backed my 4 Runner up close to our garage to load it up.

A little too close.  OK way too close! Major damage close.

I dented at least two of the white horizontal panels.  

It still opened ok, so as any husband would do I kept that information to myself and hoped Emma the Baroness wouldn’t notice since she had at least five or six things on her last minute mind about Norway.

Ah, a wonderful relaxing vacation.  

And then, like any good husband would do when driving back into our driveway I confessed.  So, this was the week when we discovered we had to replace the entire door — after considering AAA’s suggestion to claim it would raise our homeowner’s premium.


I know honey, but wasn’t it a wonderful vacation?  Wouldn’t you’ve worried about the cost, if you knew about it before I left?  I was only thinking about your happiness.

But, enough about me.  How about Donald J. Trump?  

Did it work? 

Can I remind you about 5 months of impeachment inquiry and the Mueller investigation and more recently a whistle blower complaint?  

I’m having a hard time wrapping my vacation re-entry mind around just what the hell is going on.

How can you put it all into perspective?

One article I read, pointed my pitiful brain to the slight-of-hand employed by magicians and how a bigly number of  people are so gullible.  

I didn’t want to be one of them, so I continued with 17 hours  of note-taking on what Kurt Andersen had written in “Fantasyland: How America Went Haywire: A 500-Year History.”

What about any Holiday Tau for Zahn, Winkler, Emma the Baroness and me?  Sorry.  Moving on then.

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

No way.  WW&C’s Holiday Tau nailed it, right?

“5”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56: “Your possessions take up a lot of your time today because you understand that ownership always comes with the responsibility of maintenance.” Taurus

So, here’s my proposal, I feel synchronicity if I combine the Holiday Tau for Aoki, Howey and McQueen as a strategy package.  Hearing no objections, make it so.

I’m researching Fantasyland to frame my picture of current events.

“5”  Steve Aoki, 41: “You can’t control the entire picture of life, but you do get to control how you frame your part of it.” Sagittarius

Ditto.  While I feel the urgent pull of competing passion projects, I really need to crystalize the frame.  So I’m spending a ton of hours on Fantasyland. Can you spell P-R-O-C-R-A-S-T-I-N-A-T-I-O-N?

“5”  Steve Howey, 42: “You’re feeling pulled in different directions at once internally, and this makes it more challenging to decide how to spend your hours.” Cancer

And, as I’m want to do, I’ll leave my Fantasyland obsession emotionally and physically depleted and step away to meditate to allow my intuition to take over.

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “To tune into your intuition, you need your busy mind to hush down to library-level quiet.” Aries

Thanks, but today wasn’t the right time for mischief.  Just saying …

“2”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61; Stephen King, 72: “You’ve an unrelenting positive attitude, and yet you feel the need to mix in a little mischief just to keep it interesting.” Virgo
