I like writing about the worst day of a character's life; it lets us see the mettle inside. (Sock / Sock's / Sock, no!)

Unfortunately I must re-up another satire · 9:54am Yesterday

Politico: Harvard paper to central banks: Buy Bitcoin!
Luckily, I already satirized this:

TPipp and Zipp Sell Bit Coin
Zipp is a cryptosister. This will end well, surely.

A non-traditional Thanksgiving tradition · 9:44am Last Thursday

Happy Thanksgiving, A.K.A. turkey day.

I will not be cooking turkey.

Several years ago, when my wife and I were newlyweds, we moved across the country from family for work. My sister flew out to visit us for Thanksgiving.

That was fun · 12:00am Last Sunday

Spent most of the day at Children's Hospital emergency room. Ankle-sock is coming off a bad case of influenza and decided to start puking uncontrollably. We tried treating at home and going to the regular clinic, but finally had to break down and go to the hospital. With a "one-parent in the waiting area" rule, I got to spend several hours freezing my ass off in the car. (Once we were taken back to a treatment room, I was allowed to join them.)

I thank everyone who read and upvoted and commented. Hope you enjoyed!

I also thank everyone who downvoted; I'm picturing your rageface at seeing me top the box and it warms me while I sit outside in my car in the parking lot in the chilly autumn weather.

Twitter · 10:39am November 18th

I'm writing two stories based on random Twitter threads of the genre "here's a story of something profoundly stupid I did, have a laugh."

...

I just saved the threads to disk, in case Twitter burns down before I finish the stories.
