One day David went into work in a very grumpy mood. "What's wrong David?" His best friend Mike asked him. "I just found out that my wife is having a baby." David told him. "Well shouldn't you be happy for her? I thought that you both wanted to be parents." Mike pointed out. "Yeah but I'm scared Mike. I'm nowhere near ready to be a father so I think that I'm going to tell her to get an abortion." David told him. "You mean that you're going to kill it? You both willingly had unprotected...

Old People and Weddings

Social convention often dictates that you have to invite some old people to your, or your childrens' weddings. They are usually good for a pretty good gift, so have some consideration. Seat them close enough to hear what is being said at the head table. For God's sake, stop with the dozen speeches preceding the Best Man's toast. NOBODY CARES (except a few intimate friends and relatives), and it is excruciating to sit through descriptions of how your daughter first met her favorite... Read more ..read more

Bad Parents

2w ago
I started watching a horrible miniseries on Netflix about a wealthy English fellow in the throes of addiction, and how fucked up his life is. Seeing how bad it was, I got on line and looked at the capsule summaries a few of the remaining episodes and saw that it was more of the same, with a focus on WHY he was so fucked up, using flashbacks to his terrible parents (one of whom had died in Episode 1). The fellow was apparently in his late 30's or early 40's, and the story was sort-of... Read more ..read more

I am an early-mid Boomer, born in 1949, and I was raised in a family of 7, led by a good fellow who could never land a "good" job. Mom, of course, never worked outside the home. Both parents were heavy smokers (Pall Mall), and "social drinkers," (an expression that refers to a high-functioning alcoholic). When I was born, we (parents and five kids) lived in subsidized housing in a deteriorating neighborhood that shortly after we left became all-Black. Our exit from that housing...

Golfers? "Swing Thoughts"

Golfers are familiar with the term, "Swing Thoughts." Because hitting a golf ball consistently well is impossible, and because the only true way to LEARN the golf swing is when you are a kid, so that muscle memory will take over, we all basically suck. To one degree or another. Except for the people who were fortunate enough to learn as kids. Every time we go out on the course or to the range, striking the ball is slightly different. You can have a great session at the range before a... Read more ..read more

I was sitting in the hospital waiting room blankly staring at a tv airing “The Price is Right”. My wife was in surgery. I was super bummed. I could not help blaming myself for being here. It was my fault my wife was in here, after all. See, 2 weeks ago my wife had breast enhancement surgery and a vaginaplasty (to tighten it up). She was just supposed to get the boob enlargement surgery, but I managed to work out a package deal with the surgeon, Dr. Juan Suarez (though that is not his... Read more ..read more

It was 5:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning in Early April. My alarm clock was buzzing up a storm!! I was excited as hell, as today would be the day I have been waiting on for years. See, my old buddy, Batholomew Buckingham Beauregard Lee III (or “Big Dick” for short) was dying. As a result, he was giving away all his earthly possessions. When it came to me, old Big Dick wanted to give me his stash of 100 bars of gold bullion! “Please accept this token from me, Rod, as a testament to my love... Read more ..read more
