21w4d: What's With The Pigs Anyway?

I had a very insightful conversation with a colleague today while on business in Dana Point, CA.

The question was a simple one, "why the pigs?"

At that point I realized how I've taken for granted to masthead of my blog which is pig themed.

Well...the answer is quite simple and am compelled to share. Since both wife and I are boars according to Chinese astrology, we coincidently also married in the year of the pig in 2007.

In an awkwardly disturbing but total logical connection for us, the pig became a symbol of our love. So much so that at our wedding reception, I surprised the wife with a pig-sized ice sculpture of two, you guess it, pigs, in a loving embrace and kiss.

So now you know.

It's special to us.
