That’s the beauty of that word. You don’t have to talk about your bum. Am I callipygous?

That describes my job as a field engineer. I service emergency power equipment (UPS) at a different site every day. I've worked in 33 states and Mexico. I now avoid getting a passport because I don't want to travel all over the world.

I have a made up word that my wife can't stand. She is a hopeless romantic, me not so much. If I describe something romantic in nature, I call it "romantical". I usually get a fist to the shoulder for it, but it's worth it. She knows I love her by how I live and treat her.
