My name is Tim Patterson. I am a husband, father, Southern Baptist Minister, and Network Administrator/Engineer. I currently work at North Greenville University in Tigerville, SC. Erin is my wife and Veronica my daughter is just something special. I like reading, discussing theology, photography, sports, and being a couch potato when time permits.

Why Apparent Contradictions?

I have based a large part of my life on the premise that two statements that contradict one another cannot both be true. I am also aware that I sometimes live a life that seems inconsistent with this belief. Often times this creates apparent contradictions. I am now inviting you to be apart of them.

Erin, the Cheese Thief or Temporary Cheese Insanity?

Okay, I don't really know if this is stealing, because it was in the fridge and I don't really care, but I can't pick on her if I can't call it stealing. I really want to be able to give her grief and pick on her as much as I can, but all that goes away if I don't care.

The other part of this crime is that it is actually the crazy white melting cheese that you get in Mexican restaurants. We all know that it is impossible to resist that stuff. It calls to you in your sleep and the seal around the refrigerator door is not nearly enough to keep the siren from waking you in the middle of the night. How could I be mad with Erin for eating the last of the thick yet runny cheese if I am certain that it makes you temporarily insane until it is out of the house?

Now it is gone and all is back to normal. I have decided to not press charges this time. Although, I am still left haunted by the white creamy ghost that slowly drips from a floating nacho each night as I close my eyes to sleep. I wonder if I should call a priest or a Mariachi band.

    Have you ever considered it could have been Lily or Cademon that stole the cheese and not or innocent Erin. ~Ali

    It is possible it was the dogs or maybe even the cats, but I really lean toward Erin for one reason. Opposable Thumbs! Refrigerators and the cheese container are just to hard to get into without them. and I am even going to think about how hard it is to use the microwave keypad with a paw.
