When you've done something like 400 live events, you end up having conversations like this one from yesterday:

Fr. Mike: Who was sent to Fargo in mid-winter - more than once?

Me: Yea, but who drove across the high plains of Kansas and Nebraska eight times in winter?

Fr. Mike: Yeah, but who got to go five times to Hawaii . . .

Me:

Cause you know, in the "I've suffered more than you" wars, five - all expenses paid - trips to Hawaii leaves you pretty much unarmed . . .

Addendum:

It has just occurred to me. I could battle on . . .

Me: Who got dysentery in Jakarta?

FM: Who spent a month in a hospital in South Africa and nearly died?

Me: Yeah, but you were dying on your own time. . . I was dying on Institute time.
