Mama looked at me like I had stood up, climbed atop the table, and urinated into the bread basket. My face flushed scarlet and I took a long sip of my Shiraz as I looked around for a hole to fall into.
Ha! That Change kid is funny.. It is really interesting when you start reading people's personal posts on blogs.. Change100 reminds me of the first time I met my wife's mother.. When she found out I was Jewish I swear she checked her wallet or something.. Even though I was by far the more financially viable and stable person in our relationship her mother never quite got over the fact I was Jewish. I think the best I got was "He is nice for a jewish boy"..
It was kind of weird.. I mean with my name nobody would ever guess I was Jewish. While I do have a prominent nose it is nothing compared to some of my brethren. I guess that Irish-Canadian-French-Indian-Mongral mix that my dad brought to my bloodline threw everything off.. I never really had to deal with any kind of religious persecution.. I actually grew up in a very diverse neighborhood and I attribute that to my naive attitude that everyone is an asshole regardless of sex, color, weight, or any other factor they can not control. We are all human scum. I guess I just ignored their racist side and looked at the good parts. I would like to think I won them over in the end. Who knows. Perhaps I led to them dieing soon after we were married.. the shock of it all you know..
I also heard Paulie's Brother rolled with some strippers! Some being multiple! You go Derek!!! Nothing like live blogging a threesome.
I also read some Instant Tragedy and am touched by his situation.. Specters of a future I may share with him? Who knows.. Very brief, to the point, touching, and yes.. Tragic.. I hope he is a little cheered by the fact that he has these wonderful kids and they seem to love him. I think he probably is.
Since we are being all personal and stuff.. Check this out.. I love these funny Anger skits on the intertubes.
Peace out. Some poker later.
