Pliable Charisma

While Courtney worries about the important stuff relating to our trip to Talladega I am left to concern myself with more entertaining pursuits. My top priority: fitting in with the local inhabitants of Alabama. Some things that we need to do are obvious:

  • Display NASCAR themed flags.

  • Wear nothing related to Barack Obama.

  • No beer in green bottles (or bottles at all for that matter).

We bought Coors Light cans and we already have Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Tony Stewart flags, so we're good there. What was still missing were some subtle signs that we are down with the Jesus and redneck extracurricular activities.

Solution #1: We are bringing our totally awesome "I Love Jesus, but I drink a little" beer can coozies.

Solution #2: I built a washers octagon set (popular backyard activity in Alabama).

Let me know if you think of something else that will raise my street cred ... too bad we haven't made a Camp Bacon flag yet. :)


  1. I think the sophistication of your washer set is gonna be a dead give away.

    Good luck with keeping your mouth shut around all the pro McCain & Bush people, I would have trouble and I am not near as opinionated as you. :)

  2. I am going to make sure Brian keeps his mouth shut. We would be waaaay out-numbered and who knows what drunk rednecks will do. After looking at some of the pictures, I have a feeling we are going to be the most "normal" people there. It's going to be awesome!

  3. This is deep cover, you guys. Good luck.

  4. You got old jeans right? Cut them at the knee. I've got some prestained wife beaters I can loan you guys too.

  5. I would also suggest a rebel flag making an appearance at some point, or maybe the whole time?
