The Swoosh of the Backslide
Did you hear it? It was so quiet one would scarcely notice. The "swoosh" of the backslide. My backslide. Not even I heard it. I was just there. I missed all the warning signs that I'm sure were posted all along the way. Do you know why? I missed them because I was too damn... Continue Reading →

Did I really just do that? Yep, I did!
Every once in awhile, I do something really, really, I mean REALLY stupid and yep, today was one of those days. No, really, it's true. Remember the call to the hospital? Well, this was just as bad.
