Sorry Bout Dat

September 18, 2013

Sorry about the slight delay in re-blogging, or whatever. If my first blog ever didn’t make any sense, it’s because I had a vague idea for a novel, which has since grown heartily in my undergrowth and given fruit. I’m even more determined now than i was then to write it, but there are a few problems:

Problem 1

The boy. The boy is a big problem. I’ve kicked him out, officially, but he’s always here anyway.

The money and mobility has since dried up, until now he can barely get from his wheelchair in to his telly-watching chair. He was a good boozing buddy to me back in the day so I don’t blame him for all the evil deeds he must have committed in previous lives to make himself disable. [Based on research carried out by the
