Brevity pulls me 

To a land less verbose –

Touch of cotton

Brevity: The fuel efficient car of words

It’s better to be verbose

Than to not have been a schmuck at all

How would you get along with your sibling(s), parent(s), or any other person you’ve known for a long time — if you only met them for the first time today?

I choose to talk about my father because out of both of my parents, my relationship with him is the most distant.

Cat sitting in my lap as I write, its sandpaper tongue licking my arm. Feels funny, rough.

Football is back. Lots of good games. Tonight was a blowout, an embarrassment for Florida folk.

#14 - The Chase or “2 Guns”.

Family Guy - Cops Chasing With Guns

Last night I had one of the most crazy and downright scary dreams in my life. Two people wanted to kill me but I alluded them miraculously.
