    When I was 12, I thought it would be funny to

    sh!t into a Pringles can...so I did. The log nearly filled the entire can. Then I got the brilliant idea to fill the rest of the can with water and leave it out in my backyard. It was winter at the time so I imagined it would freeze as a cylinder of ice with a log of sh!t in the...

    I remember living on the edge of the city,

    When I was younger I would restart the video

    game whenever I knew I was going to lose. I had that pen with 3 colors, and tried to push 'em all once. I would wait behind a door to scare someone, but soon leave 'cuz they were taking too long or I had to go for pee. I would fake being asleep with no quilt, so that my mom...

    I was happy I lived at my grandparents house with my mother. Honestly if it weren't for my grandparents, I never would be close to guessing what love is. See, I love my mom, but she's put me through too much hell. I never knew my real dad, I assumed the guy she was dating back...

    Then And Now

    I grew up in northeastern Kentucky in the mid 50's/early 60's..     We never locked our doors.  The worst thing that happened was the neighbor kids "broke in  (aka opened the door)" to our basement and took spray paint to "decorate" my dad's new '58 Oldsmobile.  Their...

    My childhood was just

    so beautiful. When I think about it, I end up having tears in my eyes because I sometimes want to go back and relive those moments. Those moments of innonence and care free attitude. My god, do I miss those days. I miss my childhood. I'm scared to death of being a grownup.
