I live with weirdos. It takes one to know one, so I’m calling them out. Of the five people inside my house, I’m the only one that wears my crazy on my sleeve and the internets. Most people think my wife, three daughters, dog and cat are perfect.
Well, they are, sometimes; but they’re also nuts.
My wife knows how much I dislike most pop culture things. This Fifty Shades Of Grey mommypR0n suburban smut bilge bound to look like a book phenomenon invaded my home. I don’t have a problem with erotica, read my friend Eden Baylee’s new book, Spring into Summer, it’s really great. I beef with the lack of redeeming qualities of the writing. Bobina found fifteen dollars under the couch and bought it at The Target. I’ve put up with New Kids on the Block concerts, country music playing in the car, and teenage vampire shows. You’d think the Bobina would give me a break.
Of course not.
I caught her reading it in the bathtub, which conjured thoughts of this Saturday Night Live skit:
To be honest, I’ve been neglectful lately, writing an actual novel with character depth and decent dialogue. So, whatever gets Bobina to pass time while I’m with my mistress, Helene Troy (coming soon), then fine.
The only person in the house that shows me unconditional love 24/7 is the 100-pound six and a half-year-old male golden retriever, Buddy.
For those of you with curiosity to inquire about the fuss of two of the most insipid characters ever written, Buddy has delivered. He didn’t get a treat for his review but I’m considering letting him have a regular spot on this blog, or his own blog altogether. We could have him “review” Call Me Maybe singer, Carly Rae Jepsen’s CD?
