The Janet Evans.
Of FranklinNOW fame.
Now, I have no idea when Janet will see this blog or where she'll be.
I can just imagine what her reaction will be.
When first seeing the title, "This blog is about Janet Evans," the response could be any of several.
What the hell is this?!
What is Dimples, (or that jerk, bozo, nut) up to now?
Janet's eyes are probably rolling.
Steam might be coming out of her little nostrils.
Well, actually this blog is not just about Janet.
It's also about Marjorie Pagel.
Yes, that Marjorie Pagel.
Of FranklinNOW fame.
Oh my God!
Fischer can't be serious.
He's going to blog about sweet, kind, dear Marjorie Pagel.
Why, that no good slime ball!
Here it comes.
He's not going to stop there.
You just know he'll point his poison keyboard at Greg Kowalski.
Bryan Maersch, duck!
You're not safe, either!
Actually, this blog isn't about Greg or Bryan.
But it is about Janet.
And a whole bunch of other women, including state Senator Mary Lazich.
Yes, that state Senator Mary Lazich.
And my wife, Jennifer.
So this can't be too terrible, can it?
Janet, Marjorie and Mary have something in common.
No need to over think this.
Yes, that is exactly it.
