    40% Pure Gristle

    That's me.It's an approximation mind you, some might think it's more 60%, while others might say 20%...it's subjective I suppose. I like to think as sensitive as I am, I am at least that tough as well. I can and have dealt with a lot in my life. I really hope the future is easier...

    The 1st Time I Was Seduced

    It was the summer after I finished 8th grade. I had been cutting grass for neighbors all summer. Me, my trusty push-mower and a red gas can would go anywhere for 3 bucks.  On a hot June afternoon I was cutting the yard diagonally across the street from our house. There was a...

    Well... Let'S See...

    I think I am naturally a tough person and my ideas are just about as original as they can get. When I was little people would just tell me to wait and I'd understand when I was older or I'd grow out of it and I'd look at them like they were stupid. Its always been an annoyance...

    Things Roll

    Okay this is the way it is... much of the time I can let little offensive things roll right off of me. That is just an area I am continuing to grow and improve in. That said.... I am very direct and say what I think. If you are thin-skinned you will not last around me. If you...
