Dave’s Mai Tai Challenge

Meet Dave:

Meet Dave

Dave is my brother-in-law and all-around Exceptional Human Being—the kind of guy who comes home from a long day of work and tutors his needy 8th grade sister-in-law in algebra (algebra was hard), plans magic tricks and Mudder runs, charms the heck out of old ladies at the pharmacy, and knows all the lyrics to “Rapper’s Delight,” which he blasts while leaning up against his sports car in your driveway (okay, okay, it was the ‘80s). Basically, whatever team you’re on, you want Dave on it.

Before we left for Palau, Dave challenged Brian with a top priority assignment, something you could really only do while living on a tropical island: Drink a mai tai a week for a year. It’s a tall order, but Brian is up to the task, and I’m here to offer all the emotional support, encouragement, and rides home Brian needs in order to see this one through to the finish line (and, of course, I will be documenting the results).

Monthly photos to follow. For now, rest assured that we are grabbing the bull by the horns on this one. We know Dave would do the same if he were here:
