This damn blogging challenge ended back in April and I failed to finish, but I'm finishing up now in a very much cheating/Stephen King ending kind of way because I want to finish. And because I anthropomorphize the shit out of everything and don't want to h...

Ten for T (A to Z Blogging Challenge, Day 20)
1. I considered ordering a beef  tongue  sandwich the other day and was neither high nor under a kidnapper's control. I've never had tongue, having easily made the decision decades ago to not eat something that could've tasted me at one point in time. No cl...

Needs (A to Z Blogging Challenge, Day 14)
Boring shit: New windshield wipers because the shitty, dying pair on my car are pretty good at just smearing rain around, which is basically the polar opposite of helpful To ovary up and go to the damn leasing office and put money on my laundry card WHY IS ...

Memories (A to Z Blogging Challenge, Day 13)
Playing on the uneven bars in elementary school. Graduating from tentatively hanging by my knees and being assisted with a flip to soaring backwards through the air and landing a flip like a gymnast. Launching myself backwards over and over and over again, ...

Leap (A to Z Blogging Challenge, Day 12)
I posted this photo on Facebook a couple months ago when I was doing a photo-a-day challenge. It was the last day of February in a leap year, so the theme for the day was, fittingly, leap. The backstory: After thinking about it for two years, I wrote a lett...
