This kid started his new job today. After five years of studying, homework, and tests--he is finally an accountant. I couldn't be more proud. Happy first day of work buddy, you're going to be great.
This is Martin. You've heard about him. I'm marrying him. But you really don't know him. I guess since he went out on a limb and proposed, maybe I should give him a "Meet Martin" tab over on the left. But that's a really big commitment, and I just don't know if I'm there yet. Kidding.
So, Meet Martin.
-Accountant--as of 8:00 this morning. Need one? I know a guy.
-Mississippi State graduate. And Sigma Chi frat star. Kidding about the frat star part, but he was a Sigma Chi. And he was the Sigma Chi house dad this past year. But they paid for his school, so that either makes him a genius or a frat star--you choose.
-Happy, smiley, funny. But don't tell him I said he's funny. Kid's got jokes.
-Loves Jesus and loves his mom. The two most important things to look for in a man.
-Reality-TV-a-holic. Although I can't say I'm too far from crossing that line as well.
-Sports guru. Football, baseball, basketball. It's a good thing we have similar interests. It's a good thing I've cried over watching Mississippi State lose a basketball game. It's a good thing I fell in love with MSU Baseball. It's a good thing I squealed like a child when we got our season football tickets. Because Mr. Tribble, he loves it all even more.
-Confident, genuine, honest.
-A great friend. Evident by the 15 guys that will be standing beside him on our wedding day.
-More fun to be with than a barrel of monkeys. Always up for an adventure. Always ready for a good time.
The macaroni to my cheese for the past seven years. They've been some good ones.
Say a little prayer for your new friend Martin today. I know he would appreciate it.
