    WWGD—no I’m not starting a new bracelet campaign for “What Would God Do?” What I mean is “What Would Grandpa Do?” I’ve been thinking lately about a few things that I do that would make my grandpa, if he was living, probably want to bop me over the head with a stick. I had...

    What started out horribly only got worse. I can remember a day where it seemed like somebody must’ve packed as many negative experiences as possible into a single workday.
