Growing up in various boroughs in and around Dallas, I wasn’t keenly aware of my social status until I was around 11 years old. It was then that I realized exactly how poor my family was. I just always assumed that drive-by shootings, german cockroaches and used drug needles were problems that everyone dealt with. I never… Continue reading Being Poor Used to Suck
I finally had what I needed. I was very tired by now, but I valiantly re-installed the new radiator, and filled the thing with coolant. After checking everything, I buttoned it all up for the night.
How old is “too old” to ride a bicycle? I am of the firm belief that as long as you can, you should. But…what if I’m wrong? What if I am just this delusional idiot wandering around thinking that at my age, I can still be a totally rad mountain bike trail king? Can I… Continue reading Everybody has a plan, until the Wi-Fi lags!
I have this problem that I didn’t realize was a problem until recently. Does that make sense? I’ll elaborate. My wife and I have this routine where she gets upset about something that usually makes zero sense to me. So if she is upset, I want to help solve whatever issue has caused whatever problem.… Continue reading Wait until she asks!
I want to talk about safety. Specifically, child safety. I know about this topic, not because I am an expert safety analyst. I know about this because according to statistics, I should not have survived my childhood. Hell, none of us should have. Allow me to elaborate. My mother has told me numerous times about… Continue reading Baby Safety 101
I have all these memories from my child hood that involve a whole lot of mumbling to myself. Usually, things like “What the fuck” or “What in the actual fuck?!?” One of the most common “WTF” moments would come right at the very end of every single fucking summer break. Remember when you would load into… Continue reading WTF
For too long, these precocious, rat-dog-looking cuties with faces that frankly, not even their own mothers’ could love, have wandered aimlessly around south Texas. Where did they come from? How and why did they choose Texas as their home? Are they illegal aliens that will need to be deported? Do they have or need jobs?… Continue reading Texas Chupacabra Rescue Foundation
So I have this teeny-tiny idiosyncrasy. I drive with my side view mirrors adjusted to show as much of the world around me as possible (See the two bottom pics). I don’t understand why people want to be able to look at the side of their car while they are driving (see the two… Continue reading Idiosyncratic Point of View
So, not to come off sounding all inspirational and shit, that’s not what I want this to be. I actually don’t have an end-game here, other than providing entertainment through the haunting memories that are my child-hood. I mean, who am I to inspire anyone? I’m just some dude who was wandering around aimlessly until… Continue reading Life doesn’t get easier…You have to get better at it!
