She stumbled on my porch; slurring her words, and dang near foaming at the mouth. And while this may sound like an introduction to my next zombie thriller, I’m actually describing my Friday night. And this person I’m talking about is a friend of my neighbor. I compare her to a mosquito; she comes around … Continue reading Getting My &*#@ Together Series: An Addicts Story
We’re about to have a very layered conversation … … One that is filled with nuisance … And perspective, but we’re going to have it anyway, damn it, because: 1. It’s how I feel. 2. I think there are many others out there that may feel the same way. 3. It’s my blog, so … Continue reading Getting My &*#@ Together Series: I’m a F*&# Unicorn!!!!
As usual, there I was minding my entire black ass business when this week’s blog topic came to me while listening to a podcast.
