I had finished my column Thursday and was beginning to nod off at bit. Generally, this leads to a well-deserved nap. I thought about heading to Madera Muni and playing a round of golf with my brother, Russ.
But when I walked out of the office, I felt like I just stepped right into a solar flare. I retreated back to the comforts of the air-conditioned office. I needed to rethink this crazy idea.
Even my brother was not actively endorsing my afternoon plans.
Now I had an excuse to head right to the couch. I could blame it on my brother, just like I had done throughout my life...
