It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.
Yes, there is a tale of two Pats… or perhaps it’s better to say, there are two tales of the one Pat.

Which tale should be lived?

I’m guessing at the year, but it had to be around 2008. I was sitting on my backyard patio with two of my very best friends, enjoying a warm summer night and a glass of one of Michigan’s finest wines, when one of them asked, “So, are you on Facebook?”
