One of my very best friends from high school went and got married to an excellent woman up in Breckenridge, CO. If you've never been there (and I hadn't), know this: It is beautiful. It is also 10,000ft above sea level, and that means a couple of things:

- It's super easy to get incredibly drunk
- The atmosphere will attempt to steal all the moisture from your body at all times
- These things are probably related

I can now also verify something: When I'm someplace that's a mile or more above sea level, something strange happens to me. That something is this: The top half of my upper lip starts to feel weird -- it feels like someone has bonded a thin strip of plastic to it. The last time it happened was when I visited Denver a few years ago, so I know I'm onto something.

I hope you all had good weekends, but you must understand that unless one of your best friends from high school also got married, your weekend could not have been quite as good as mine. I am sorry about this.
