May your holiday leave you nourished, but I don’t care what you got.
As an aside… This is my 20 th christmas card. Since 1995 I have sent fifty cards a year.
Every year I get a card from my mom/ernie, my sister, and now from my bio dad. That’s three.
This year (like last) i got one from the super golden Goldtonuks.
It looks like because I do not have my own family, nobody cares to send me greetings.
That’s fine, you think this is the first year I learned this?
Am I bitter? maybe. Will I get a half dozen “whoops” cards? probably.
So, the 20 year lesson I learned is.. if you don’t have babies nobody wants to acknowledge you.
Shit, I learned that a decade ago, but how should I respond?
Been thinking about my mom. In her early 20’s she raised me and my sister, by herself.
I cannot even imagine how difficult it was to feed a family of three on the income she made at Dress Barn or the Ground Round.
We fought a ton back then; “Why can’t I take saxophone anymore” or “Why do we need a babysitter?”
I’ve always been a little shit, and the strength it took her not to murder me in my sleep… well, it’s impressive.
Bought this for my mother a little while back. My step dad had to go on youtube to learn to tie a noose to hang it with the appropriate “look”. Of course the image doesn’t include the noose, or much information at all, I just liked it.. so it’s here.
When you get old, crap like this interests you. After tuesday, I suspect I will be drawing a lot of house plants, possibly vases, plates with flower details, and shells.
Science category because, er, it appears to be a water droplet with an eco system contained within…
(the interface here won’t let me add any more categories for some reason)
