Like all robust failures, the Great Bachelor Experiment of '08 is about to come to its atrophied, pathetic end. The girls return to Michigan on Tuesday, thus concluding 10 days of dynamic loser-dom the likes of which are impossible to achieve without a home weather station, membership to the Mickey Rooney Fan Club and a soldering iron.
The highlights: Riding the bicycle with Lulu; watching Beverly Hillbillies re-runs; poorly executing home-improvement projects; botching Hamburger Helper twice and discovering "Hurl," a game show that combines competitive eating, amusement park rides and puking.
I'm excited to have them back. Thanks to my folks for taking such good care of Mo and Hope and showing them Maine, but 10 days is too long to be away from the ones you love so much.
Here's a video from one of my Heart of Dorkness moments.
