I’m hoping you can help me with my friend Wendell. Let me start with a little background.
My friend, Wendell, emerged this morning from a 5 month expedition in the Amazon basin. First thing he did was check his financial blogs and Wendell was thrilled that stocks were at an all time high, unemployment is at a 5-year low, and the deficit is being reduced. Wendell is coming out of the jungle a richer man rather than impoverished and bankrupt.
Wendell’s call was short as his phone battery was low. In fact, his last words were, “Bye for now. See you soo..” Wendell is planning on spending the rest of the day writing up notes before hoping a plane to Louisville, on which he plans to sleep the entire flight. I’m to pick him up and I told him I’d make him a nice meal and we could go out and celebrate his adventures.
Here is my problem. Wendell is a real nice guy - would give you the shirt off his back. But he is a bit paranoid, working on his racism, and a FOX News junkie. Wendell began his Amazon adventure, Tuesday morning on November 6. 2012. Fox News had assured him that morning Romney/Ryan would win the popular vote by at least 5% and get over 300 electoral college votes. Of course, Romney would right the economy while Obama’s reelection would bring economic holocaust on the world.
After checking his economic blogs, Wendell naturally assumed Romney and Ryan are at the helm. Since he will be sleeping between now and when I pick him up, I could use some advice on how to break the news that Barack Obama is still President.
So, what kind of meal should I make for Wendell?
Should I tell him about the election before or after the meal?
After dinner, I was planning on taking him out to listen to some music. What kind would you recommend?
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
