Stand the F*** Up!

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Not standing for the National Anthem. Spoiled. Pampered. Entitled. Stand the F*** Up! You are quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. You are one of 32 men in the world who get to do what you do. Stand the F*** Up! You make millions. You don’t […]

Get in the Ring Motha F***ers!

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. The Rejection letter. God Damn it! As soon as I read the words, Thank You for sending DEADLINE, we have now had time to review…. Oh uh. I didn’t have to read another syllable. As many of you know, I have been trying to cross the […]

Why God?

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. The Accidental Shooting. The call goes out as an 11-year-old shot at a bus stop. That’s a scanner call that paralyzes the soul. It’s a tray of China crashing on a marble floor. It’s a Tornado siren sounding at the farmer’s market. It is a piercing […]

WHO ARE YOU?

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Screaming at sheriff; “Who Are You?” through a pane of bullet proof glass. It’s a Friday afternoon. I’m at a remote county sheriff’s office. I’ve not been here before and it feels isolated, small town, in an Andy Griffith kind of way. I am in the […]

Bomb Brain

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Explosive brain surgery. There’s never a good time to get a wake up call from work. And when it’s 1:3o on a Sunday morning, you know it is not going to be good. The Metro Bomb tech answers the phone. He is bleary eyed and he […]

The Trailer

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy.™ The Trailer. The stench emanating from the Winnebago is overwhelming. It smells like an open sewer filtered through a skunk’s raised tail. The filthy camper is in the middle of the KOA campground at the back end of the park. The trees surrounding the trailer are […]

The Gift

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The gift. A white cop. A black woman.  A very large 10 year old boy. I’m seated at a table covered in football equipment. A mouth piece, a face shield, a size 11 pair of cleats. The boy is in 5th grade. He is gargantuan. He […]

The Conventions

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The conventions. Donkeys vs Elephants. Republicans vs Democrats. Liberals vs. Conservatives. Americans vs Americans. I’m watching the Democratic National Convention. I watched the Republican National Convention last week. They are the same, but very very different. The conventions are bombastic and over the top. They are biased […]

Tow Truck Discounter

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The Tow Truck man. I have met a lot of tow truck guys in my life and they are a different breed. Most of them are big burly Paul Bunyan like bastards who wear short sleeves even in the icy throws of winter. Somehow they stay […]

Cold Turkey

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Taking a few months off. For years, I didn’t miss a day. Every single day, I wrote and published a Life’s Crazy story. Some were great and some sucked and most were somewhere in between. But I wrote and wrote and wrote. Then one day, I stopped. […]
