Introduction

TODAY'S QUOTE: "Recalcitrance: an American tradition since 1776!"

Hello! Welcome to my blog!

I thought it would be nice if I explained the whys and wherefores of my writings before we get down to business. As you may surmise from my blog description, most of my writing will try to be humorous. I don't believe I will always fail in making the reader laugh - or at least crack a smile - but sometimes things may happen in the world which will set me off on a serious tangent. I will try to keep those tangents to a minimum.

Why a blog? I have things to say, and I need an outlet, a venue to state my ideas! These ideas may be short essays or very short stories. I hope to use my blogging experience as a springboard to longer, more rewarding pieces of fiction. In short, my hope is that this blog will be an audition. It is my way of putting on a very tight sweater (probably knitted by my wife) and sitting on a stool at the Schwabs drugstore lunch counter waiting to be discovered.
Those of you who know me personally know that this image I've just planted in your brain is not a pretty sight. Let's face it: I'm no Lana Turner.

So much for content; now a little bit about me. I am short, middle-aged male with most of the attending neuroses you would expect to find in a short male. As a Libra, I am verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry sensitive. I make up for this with a biting sense of humor. I never intend to use my humor to inflict pain, but there will be times when I might come off as sarcastic. Once again, those close to me will snicker at this last comment.

I live somewhere in southeastern Pennsylvania with my wife and two cats. They allow me to live here just for laughs. I hope you will agree with them that I am at least good for laughs.

Well...here goes nothing....

It's just me again. I look forward to reading your comments,essays, etc. I printed up your introduction as I enjoyed reading it. You will have to explain how these things work. Like those characters at the bottom of the page for instance.

Take care and be happy.

Why pay $3.99 for a tube of toothpaste at Ralph's when I can get it for $1.96 at Wal*Mart?
