The Most Disgusting Sport in the world.

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. Is it America? Is it tradition? It sure is disgusting. I tune in once again to ESPN, and there it is, center stage from Coney Island. A thousand or more people screaming, holding signs, waving hot dog symbolism like that […]

The boy turned soldier turned man

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The young boy who became a soldier and a man. I’m watching this baby soldier stand tall and proud at the front of the cathedral. It’s an open air pavilion, the wall is the sky. The alter is the sun. The angels are dancing on a cloud […]

1-800 Call Bill

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy?™ College Saturdays. I’m sitting in the backyard. I have the windows open and I’m listening to the Auburn vs Clemson game. The announcers are hyped. The crowd is roaring. The electricity that is college football is in the air. Listening to a game is nothing like […]

4th of July 2015

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy.™ 4th of July commercialism. The Fourth is America’s birthday. It’s about patriotism and pie. It’s about founding fathers and fire works. It’s about Independence and Hot Dog eating contests. The 4th of July is sparklers and the beach and bar b que with all the fixings. […]

double frappe whoopee semi mocha full choco nutty buddy latte

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The coffee break. I’m sitting outside on the patio sipping a double frappe whoopee semi mocha full choco nutty buddy latte. It’s delicious, slathered with caffeinated cool and topped with fattening whipped cream. Just holding this cup of sugary incantations has added pounds to my ass. […]

Shot 11 times

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Getting shot 11 times and living. I stub my toe and think the world is coming to an end. This victim? Well he defies all logic. I am sitting in a small room just off the solarium on the 6th floor of the hospital. The roof […]

Bash in your F***ing Head

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The animosity that lurks, that slithers along the periphery of humanity, that suckles at the teet of intolerance. The man on the other end of the phone is angry. His words are snake venom, his sentences karate blows to the adam’s apple. I don’t see him, but […]

The Gingerbread house

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. The inspection report. Stunning. Illuminating. Disappointing. When I pull up to my home in the little subdivision, sometimes it smiles at me. Sometimes it frowns. The red brick house is cute, but it needs a face lift. The roof is new, so is the water heater. […]

Freaky Friday

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Freaky Friday. It was a busy news week for me. The mean man who scratched the car. The girl who didn’t die. The Cancer Bike Rider held up at gun point. The Mayoral candidate who parked his bright red Cadillac in front of an expired parking […]

The color of anger

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The mean old man. I’m standing in front of the lake. It’s a warm morning, but there’s a slight breeze making the rising temperatures bearable. The sun is on fire in the brilliant blue field of blue. There are no clouds on this 2nd day of […]
