I got a message today from a fan.
I quote it verbatim:
Because of your rather strange fascinaton with weird objectives--24 hour state drives, coin collecting scavenger hunts, etc, you make my requests to my wife less overwhelming. For example, "hey, Amy, can I get a bigger fish tank?" "no" "Hey, I'm not going to drive through all the counties in Alabama in one day, I'm just asking for an aquarium." "Well, if you put it that way......."
You are the reason my marriage is stronger.
