The Final Four

Ring F4

So Billy got married, and Casey and I went down to St. George to see his wedding this past weekend. It was very nice, and a pretty standard wedding, so that’s neat. Billy has always been the most normal of my friends, which is interesting, considering everyone down in Cedar City was saying that Billy was this crazy guy. He is, but to a lesser degree than many others of the high-school group. Maybe that’s why he was able to get married.

Speaking of which, of the male members of our high school group, there are basically four left now, the Final Four. These consist of: me, Casey Wayman, Nate Winder, and Steve Porter. Josh doesn’t count, really, and Ben is practically engaged, so these are the ones that are left. On the drive home from St. George Casey and I were postulating who, of these four, would go first, and when. Here’s what we came up with:

First: Stephen Porter. Of the four of us, Steve is the one who is trying the hardest. He is consistently trying to date people, and also is the most recent to have a girlfriend. Casey gives the man two years, tops.

Second(tie): Casey Wayman and Jeff Parkes. As we two were the ones judging, we weren’t really able to look at our own situations objectively, but we tried. Casey is at least trying to date as well, but the problem with him (and me, really), is that we’re still a bit too selfish to truly make a good boyfriend, and by extension, husband. We both have good hearts, but have wrapped them up in Star Trek and Pimp Lando and computers and improv and whatever else. Either we’ll have to find a girl who likes everything we do, or we’re going to have to change in order to progress.

Last: Nate Winder. This guy isn’t even trying. He’s got a lot of plans for the future that don’t include a girl, and Nate’s determination will get them accomplished. Nate will end up being an experienced bachelor until he’s 45, and end up marrying some exotic islander or something.

Anyone else care to add comments or predictions? Place your bets now!

    I just wanted to say that a very small part of the reason why I hang out with you guys is out of pure curiosity to find out how this all pans out. The larger part is because you guys crack me up, but there still is the small part that I just had to admit.

    Good luck, contenders! I predict I’ll get married somewhere after Steve and only slightly before you and Casey. Though Casey has a leg up on all of us right now…

    Well, well, well…. I’m not saying I refute your postulation, but I wouldn’t go as far as to say that my future plans don’t include a girl. I’ll be married before I’m 30, and you can take that to the bank!
    Furthermore, I wouldn’t be surprised if Casey was the next casualty. I’m just saying.

    ps. I don’t think Gavin Sheehan’s married either. So where does he fit into the mix?

  4. I think Gavin is married to Satan

    Actually, I think Casey is in the lead for this one. I’m working on it, but I don’t seem to be getting anywhere. The race continues.

  7. By the way, Nate, you probably won’t read this, but I took your comment to the bank, but it bounced.
