Some of our good friends are leaving the University of Evansville so, appropriately, a "Roast" was organized to tease the poor guy. After the Roast date was set, the planners decided to ask Brian to be the emcee for the event. They must have found out he was a youth director in seminary.
Brian brought his guitar home from work and gracefully laid down some chords and lyrics about our friend to Poison's tune of "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." Henry thought it was the greatest, Svea clapped along, and I went and permed, sprayed and bleached my hair.
