People Who Visit Us: Post #2/ TOM & ANDREA

IMG_0183Yup.  That’s them.  With Chris on the left.  This photo was taken during a fierce Mexican Train battle and you can tell who was winning.  That would be Tom.  And to his right, his lovely fiancee Andrea.  We had a fantastic overnight visit with them.  This gal — no relation — was also around that weekend —  Emmy7.19.14(we were dogsitting and it was some F-U-N).  But I digress…. as I often do ….

I am very pleased to bring you the Second Installment of my new hit series PEOPLE WHO VISIT US!

Here, in their (his) own words, I give you … Tom:

How do you know the Larsens? We sorta accidentally started a little artist collective where Chris played drums in a band with me and I occasionally directed plays that Bethany wrote. Maybe you’ve heard of the IT Awards??

Describe yourself in three words: Always, always nude.

What’s your favorite book?   The Holy Spirit, Your Financial Advisor by Creflo Dollar

What did you eat at the Larsens’?   There were wee quiches, and generous cheddar cheese squares that spilled over the edge of the Triscuits on which they were mounted. There was a dinner at Gleason’s downtown and a breakfast of Chris-engineered crepe-like pancakes with an enormity of bacon and the largest cherries I’ve ever seen.

(maybe we SHOULD open a bed and breakfast??)

(maybe we SHOULD open a bed and breakfast??)

Did you win at cornhole? I didn’t win at cornhole; I won cornhole. The reason is, I pioneered a new night version using citronella candles mounted safely beneath the board that led to awesome dark-play where we appeared to be tossing the bags directly into fire. Hellhole was born. What that allows one to do now is play Chris until you can beat him. Which I did at 2:30 am.

Did you leave sober, tipsy or shitcanned?  (or did you sleep over) –  Now that one can play cornhole through until morning, I predict fewer people leaving sober.

Where are you visiting next?  Costa Rica or Indiana


The Larsens’ Turn:

Tom has been a true blue friend to us for a long, long time.  We’ve had some road trips, some rock gigs, some late-night dart battles.  But he’s finally found his equal in Andrea — an amazingly open, beautiful, lovely person who may be kinda new to us, but her old soul, honesty & greats sense of humor have made her an instant hit around the Larsen house, and we look forward to many, many more visits!  She’s kicking our ass on the Mexican Train tournament we have running, so at the very least, we gotta finish that!!  And best of all — we will be among a select few who will get to celebrate with these two fantastic folks when they make it official and say “I DO” in NYC in September.  Oh, you know there’s gonna be a blog post about that!!!
