    Getting Stranger By the Minute

    My weirdness has been a coping mechanism for years... it's gotten me out of some sticky situations.  I have utilized my twisted wit for as long as I can rememeber.   I've even had people get the idea to fight me, I abhor violence so I would say something...

    This is one of the things that doesn't kill me, so I am a stranger! Does it mean that my daughter shouldn't talk to me?
