Is it time for an open marriage?


After 12 years of marriage, my wife and I have reached the conclusion that it is indeed time to open up our relationship.

How did it go?

We spent the latter part of our Christmas holiday writing up a contract between ourselves. It ended being eight pages long with multiple governing points. The idea was to protect each other from legal ramifications and potential feelings. I will not get into the fine details but it turned out being both strict and remarkably lenient.

We both started differently…

We took the dating apps and divided them so that we would not cross paths, She got Plenty of Fish (POF) and Ashley Madison, I got tinder, HUD, and Pure. I’ve already abandoned them, we will get back to that. She actively maintains profiles on both and seemingly is doing quite well. As for me, I already knew a girl I was interested in seeing naked and focused on that single avenue. I work away doing mobile service work so whenever I am in a particular city I grab a hotel room.

We both agree that this opportunity will allow us to work out some sexual frustration and explore suppressed desires.

Aside from sex, the new agreements allows us to get some of the things we need from other people. She likes dancing and likes to ski, I do not. She now has the freedom to take someone of a weekend trip to Jasper and enjoy those things.

There is no doubt we are walking in dangerous ground. Feelings are very real and need to be navigated with extreme caution. But how to you logistically do that? If someone makes you feel good you generally want to keep them around.

Since the agreement was activated roughly a month ago, I have spent two nights with someone, seemingly I have chosen a good partner with the perfect amount of desire. Things that happened were not so basic and limits were tested. I have uncovered desires that I didn’t even know I had.

Writing about this will be key to mental clarity and comfort, Seventy Seven Oaks will be my therapy.


Whiskey. — Please.

I’ve always looked at Whiskey as one of the simplest and aficionados drinks. Whiskey is a really good thinking and problem solving beverage. It seems reasonable to assume that many of the worlds defining moments started with a couple people having a whisky. Or rum.

It a few years, “The Beast Fire Whiskey” will go onsale. basically, when Fort McMurray was burning to the ground, a Whiskey facility had many gallons sitting in wooden barrels. they got over-whelmed with smoke and it sat in a smoke filled room for weeks. Legend has it the barrels absorbed the flavour of the burning forest. Sure to be a fine collectors item if one could obtain a bottle. I believe they are set to auction them.

I do enjoy a good whisky and water on ice, but there is something I enjoy just a little more. 🥃

Grand Marnier – two fingers straight up with a water chaser. In a light glass. That is my whisky.

You do need to pay careful attention to the dosage, naturally – too much will turn you into a bumbling retard, but not enough will just leave you as plain and boring as you know you are. But if you find the right amount you can become the perfect person that is both pleasing and refreshing in the eyes of everyone around.

Almost nothing beats a comfortable deck, a think cigar, and a bottle of the orange nectar. Work in a two drink blowjob and you are absolutely set!

I have heard people say that you are an alcoholic if you drink alone, I firmly disagree. I work a crew camp life, so on my week home I firmly enjoy playing some good music and sitting by myself with the bottle. Have you ever drank and Amazoned??

Little by little, I will confess more and more…

You're Fired! Clinton beats Trump

What would the world be like to day if I had written this a little over two years ago…

Hillary Clinton pulled off the win, Americans have chosen to break new ground this election and elect the first female U.S. President.

I’m a Canadian, so I did not get a vote in this election. But don’t for one second assume that it does not affect me. The balance of the world hinged on this one. I just hope that the balance of the scale has tipped the correct direction.

President Obama has certainly taken a few breaths of relief, his legacy should now remain much unscathed.

We also now need to come up with a title for Bill Clinton… First Man…. First Former President….. I am very confused.

In a little over a couple months, I imagine the Obama family will fly off on an epic family vacation, Donald Trump will remain a very loud Donald Trump, and President Clinton and Former President Clinton will spend some time dodging the FBI and DOJ. (Maybe, the FBI did tell everyone on November 6th that it once again concluded it’s investigation. no charges to be laid)

So what now? Donald Trump is going to certainly challenge the election results. Trump has said all along that the election is rigged. Do you think he will get any traction?

If I want to knock a story off the front page, I just change my hairstyle. -Hillary Clinton

I have talked to several people the last couple months about the election, people from different races and countries. It amazed me at how passionate everyone is about this Decision 2016. I am sure that I will be having a few conversations over the next few days about the results. I would like to believe that a Clinton win would mean a more relaxed news cycle in 2017, but I am sure she has some skeletons that will topple out of the closet.

Respectfully if one were to practice partisan politics, Senior positions in the White House would be given to Green Party Dr. Jill Stein, and Libertarian Gary Johnson. I would include Donald Trump but……. ummmm…….

Wait… Could you imagine Donald Trump as Secretary of State Under Clinton??

November 8th has come, and gone. Hillary Clinton has secured the win, and I am likely to be sued for writing this because Donald Trump will think it is a disaster. Now to see what the next couple months bring.

The Afterlife

Do you believe in ghosts?

Truthfully, I am not sure myself – I do however like to think that the people in my life that have passed are still able to look in from time to time.

During stressful times, I like to ask my dad for help and guidance, he passed away 26 years ago this month. I thank him after regardless of the turnout.

I have always wondered about what comes in the afterlife. Is there a heaven or hell? Does your mind or spirit ascend into energy and become a higher being? Are you simply gone? Is it even possible to get a firm answer on the subject?

I was sitting in A&W, at a table alone one day. This restaurant has been in the same spot for many years – my father and I would go here semi regularly and sit at the same table, over the years and post many renovations- that table has managed to stay in the same spot. I was having a rather complicated day and I thought I would go have lunch with him. In my head I asked for a sign to know he was still around… The power went out. Could it have been a coincidence? I did the same thing a few months later, and then again a few months after that. I got no similar signal.

On Halloween, or the day of the dead, it is a great time to have a pondering moment about the afterlife.

Because there is no correct answer, I would love to hear your thoughts on the dead and what could be next….
