Another One Bites the -- er, Congratulations!

Fraters Libertas has a stunning announcement: Atomizer has become engaged to his lovely girlfriend (now fiancee) Atomizerette! You'll have to read his announcement to get the low-down on Atmoizer's devastating technique, but you could say that he displayed a certain amount of horse sense in making hay while the sun shines. However, Atomizer obviously never played trumpet in a marching band, or at least never had to follow the local 4-H in a parade, or else he'd have anticipated the inevitable result of his creativity.

In honor of Atomizer's big announcement, I'd like to relate a story from a while back, when I threw a bachelor party for a friend of mine. The men started discussing the economics of being a married man -- meaning you never ever had cash in your wallet -- and my friend and I both scoffed (I was a single Captain at that time). We did a quick survey of the room ... and every bachelor had cash in his wallet, but every married man had not a cent. This was not a setup; it was completely spontaneous, and my poor friend looked somewhat green at the gills for about an hour afterward.

So congratulations, Atomizer, and give your fiancee our regards! Heh heh heh.
