You should use protection

I have been writing a lot recently.

Not so much here in the blog, but some short stories and working on a novel.  The novel is taxing.  It sucks just about everything ounce of energy I have.  I love it. 

I wrote another short about animals talking to each other.  This time with an angry panda instead of domesticated house pets.   I’m going to send it out to some humor magazines.  I’m not sure how funny it is, but I amused myself while writing it. 

Here is a funny one for you.  I’m having drinks with my Mom AND Dad tonight.  This is a rarity.   No really.  It happens about once every 3 years.   The funny part is that they get along really well.  Just a matter of busy schedules and proximity I suppose.  It will be nice.  I think a lot of people who come from “broken” homes know what I’m talking about. 

There is just something about having that sense of family that always seems to be missing.  Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc. you want to be able to spend with your entire family.  I don’t get that.  I think it sucks.  But at this point in life, I’ll take drinks.  It’s a whole lot more than a lot of people get.

Have you seen the SportsCenter “MyWish” series?  I defy you to try not to cry watching that!  Defy you.  I’m sorry, but when the kid with the heart defect went into the Jets huddle and said 1-2-3- Jets.  (Mind you, I hate the Jets)  I almost lost it.  Not going to lie.  Eyes may have gotten a bit watery. 

I’m going to the Yankee game tomorrow.  It is supposed to be 98 degrees.  In a world of awesome ideas Yankees vs. Royals in mind numbing heat is not on the top of the list.

My office was closed at noon today.  First time the office has “officially” closed that early since I have been there.  I’ll take it.    As a matter of fact, I could get used to that. 

I just traded a guy on my fantasy baseball team because he got hit in the crotch with the baseball without wearing a cup and is injured.  He will be back in the lineup today so he has recovered from his (and this is the official diagnosis) “testicle contusion”, but he says he will not wear a cup moving forward.  I do not want such stupidity on my team.  I do not care if it is fantasy baseball, that is just beyond idiotic.   For any guys who has been hit in the balls without of cup on, you know that if you got hit there and were recovering from that sort of an injury, you would put a cup on.  You just would.  It is that simple.  It hurts way too much.
