Fun Fact #1: Uncle Bill is his Uncle

Favorite memory of Wild Man:  The first time I met Wild Man was at a celebration dinner for Uncle Bill.  We were celebrating Uncle Bill’s being the first person in our family to get his GED before 35.  Wild Man stood up to give a toast which I reckoned to be quite a nice gesture. 

Fun Fact #2: Assumes everyone likes Uncle Bill as much as he does.

His toast was kind of odd though.  He raised his glass and said, “To Uncle Bill who’s so stupid he has to have picture books read to him.”  Which is obviously a true statement, but I’m not sure what he meant by the “stupid” part.

Fun Fact #3: He and Uncle Bill have a symbiotic relationship. He gives Uncle Bill undying devotion and in exchange he also cleans Uncle Bill’s House, and organizes Uncle Bill’s “Skynnerd” albums.


Fun Fact #4: Trigger is not a nickname


Fun Fact #5: His middle name is Happy.

    In response to the challenge… I have analysed Trigger and made the following observations. From a very young age Trigger was predestined to problems with the name “Trigger Happy”. Trigger’s dad Uncle Bill is very controlling and seems to have passed on an abuse of alcohol to him. I think Trigger’s love language is physical touch and needs a honest hug from his dad or from Wild Man (Wild Man has goodness in his heart).

  2. Out From the Wild Way to go Bret Overdorf you stepped up to the plate and took the challenge. I have to say that you are in a virtual tie for first place with Eb Hooyer. I say virtual because I hate to admit it, but there is a little grey area when it comes to my scoring system. Kind of like life and Presidential elections.

    Out From the Wild The one seeming flaw in your critique is that you said Uncle Bill was Trigger’s Dad. Uncle Bill is Trigger’s Uncle. Although in this case, he may well be his father also.

    Bret Overdorf Yes I see what seems to be a flaw in my critique. I think I read to much into the story as I concluded that Trigger was separated from his parents at birth and was raised by Uncle Bill as his own son. All the more reason Trigger needs a hug. I guess Uncle Bill may have a little goodness in his heart.

    Out From the Wild No! Uncle Bill does not have goodness in his heart. I don’t want to hear that from you.

    Bret Overdorf If he took Trigger in from birth, I guess it could have been for disingenuous reasons or maybe he only has goodness in his big toe vs his whole heart.

Wild Man on his journey. This picture is a metaphor for life.

Anything could be around that bend. Unfortunatley for Wild Man it was more miles of endless forest and not the Tom Petty concert he was looking for.
