    All Things Considered

    I had a mother who once hid behind a tree to pelt me with water balloons.  Sex advice I got from my family was "Your **** ain't a broom to go sweeping out dirty old holes with" and "If it's dripping, it ain't got a cold!"   It's amazing I can have sex at all after...

    Considering....

    Well...

    Since my entire family (which I have disowned) are either alcoholics, drug addicts, thieves, manipulators, cheaters, con-artists, or ******, I think I turned out pretty ok. I'm none of the above.
