“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

I plan to have you read this sentence. Score!

Hmm, what else do I plan…

I plan to have you ignore my name.

At least once you'll leave a movie, so casually pondering what was awesome, iffy, outright sucky, that you'll pay no attention to "Written by" as it scrolls up through the credits and will fail to notice that after it appears either:

Andrew R. Meade            or            Drew Meade

Haven't decided yet.

What else… Well…
     …How much time you got?

Brief version - at the risk of sounding overly optimistic and idealistic - I plan to always remain optimistic and idealistic. And corny. And sarcastic. And in touch; perpetually sharing my wild, precious life with those of my family and friends.

But my favorite plan: 

Every day, for the rest of my life, I plan to give Andy the same unconditional love and support that he gives me. Together, we plan to redefine the concept of the "All-American family" and to weaken the arguments of those who condemn us simply by living honestly and openly according to our own set of family values.

Did you see that one coming? If you know me, I bet you did. 

I bet you also know that, should any of these plans fail to materialize, I plan on planning new plans and - I promise:

I'll be just ducky.
