College Grad and a sleep inducing regimen for men of all ages


We had a great busy weekend! Congratulations to Lee for graduating with an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice!

Part One: Graduation Day
Lee and his Granny.






Part Two: The Celebration BBQ
Or: Have Trouble Sleeping? I can show you how to ensure a great afternoon nap:

For younger men about 16 years old, make sure to work a 12 hour shift in the concession stand at the Texas A&M Graduation. Then go to a 4H sponsored dance. Sleep a few hours at home. Come to Lee's celebration BBQ, eat a good amount of sausage, armadillo eggs and banana pudding. Plop down on a sofa and close your eyes.


For 20 year olds: work a full time job and go to school full time. Go to a rather long graduation ceremony and awake at 7:00 a.m. because you are in the habit of it already. Go to the celebration BBQ and eat a very large amount of sausage, armadillo eggs and banana pudding. Lay your head in your girlfriend's lap and close your eyes.
OR: Try to round up your horse after her grown colt (a stallion) challenges you. Then stay out very late putting out fishing lines. Then drive your Mom to Lee's celebration BBQ. Eat a large amount of sausage and armadillo eggs. Drink a large amount of sweet tea. Find a sofa in the air conditioning, lie down, and close your eyes.


For men over 40: Awaken at 4:00 a.m. because you are in the habit already due to work stress and anticipation. Drive 2 hours. Drink 2 apparently strong margaritas (my fault!), then eat a rather large meal of sausage, armadillo eggs, and banana pudding at Lee's celebration BBQ. Find a recliner, a pillow, and a large screen TV. Lean back and close your eyes.




THESE ACTIVITIES WILL WORK EVERY TIME! GUARANTEED!
