How Patches Lost His Ass

A little over a year ago, I had a momentary lapse in judgment.  Yes, I allowed my daughter to get a pet guinea pig, which was clearly not the smartest decision I ever made, considering that we have a dog who likes to eat EVERYTHING under the sun.  Miraculously, though, the pig and the pooch have somehow managed to co-exist relatively peacefully up until now.  That…

What's a Testimony?

Recently, a friend asked me to share my testimony. I was a taken aback. No one had ever asked me for my story before. Come to think of it, I wasn't so sure I had much of a story to tell. When I hear testimonies of how people had drastic circumstances that brought them to the Lord, I am usually in awe. Former gangsters, former drug dealers, former atheists, former prositutes, orphans, homeless...these are the people that have a testimony, right? I've done plenty of stupid stuff in my…

A Peaceful Equation

Bedtime with my twinks continues to reach an all-time low around here.  Every flippin' night I threaten to sell 'em off in a 2-for-1 special at a garage sale.  Cause seriously, why did I have to be the one to give birth to the sleepless wonder twins?  I say it's high time I open up a can of 'Serious As A Heart Attack' and take back my nightly mother effin' me-time.  So, here's the equation that I hereby propose:…

A (Very) Short Story By My Son

(This story must be prefaced with the fact that it was nothing short of a miracle to get my son to write anything in school at all.  His poor teacher had to practically hypnotize him to get any kind of writing topics to emerge from his little brain.  So yeah, this story's about a giant turd, but hey, at least the kid wrote a story, right??!!)
