  • When I Was a Child…

    That Scripture from Matthew or wherever… it doesn’t matter, does it? Yall know what it says… I spoke like a child…  I speak like a child all the time. Most of the time it’s because I am so stinking happy I can’t control it. Like I can’t control it when I’m mad or sad or […]

  • Howdy!

    I’m here today because I cannot post on my WordPress site because I haven’t been able to pay the webhosting stuff… something like two hundred bucks, which I don’t have because I’m a child when it comes to managing money. I lost one of my part-time gigs at the end of May. The other’s hours […]

    I feel like typing, yall. So here… have some nonsense. One of my favorite scenes in Top Gun is when Iceman tells Maverick, You can be my wingman anytime, and Mav responds, Bullshit!

    I’ve written about this before. April fifteenth is the day he’d asked me to be his girl. April sixteenth is the day he broke my heart. April seventeenth would’ve been an anniversary of sorts.

  • Quarantine


    They say stay home. I’ve not been following orders. I have been one of those miscreants who has run errands, albeit minimal. So I am going to stay inside my home for fourteen days. I will not leave the house. Day One: Five Loads of Laundry Day Two: When the World Lets You Stay in […]

    Light in the Darkness

    I am clinging… perhaps a little too desperately at the moment… to the kindness others have shown me. The friends who came to help me move my shit the other day. To the brief conversation I had with a Bumbler: Dude used the word nuanced in a sentence. That’s not something I see all that […]

  • Silver Linings

    Silver Linings

    Funny how catastrophes can illuminate the past to make it seem glorious. How they can demand action. I was bitching a while back about how life is my problem, how I struggle with loving it and wanting it. And then some folks in China decide to eat exotic meat that carries a deadly virus, their […]
