My name is Wes, I'm married with two wonderful children. The nickname BaldNSpicy came from the fact that I have been balding for a (long) while now and spicy for my love of very spicy foods (Thai and extremely hot wings are my favorites). If eating doesn't bring me near tears and leave me sweating, it's not worth eating. :-)
Oh, and I'm also known for my doorags.
