What’s Next

April 8, 2014


As people have been watching these episodes of MY PARENTS ARE CRAZIER THAN YOURS, I’m often asked, “What’s next?” As soon as I raise the money, I’m going to shoot the film version of my entry entitled, THE UPS GUY AND HIS PACKAGE. Remember that one? A beautiful, sexy, built, hot UPS guy comes to […]

Kermit Where Art Thou? #62

August 12, 2011


Last night an old friend of mine from the city invited me to go out dancing with her to a free event, held in a new, wannabe cool hotel on Tenth Avenue right near the tunnel to Jersey.  This friend of mine is one of those people who never asks how you’re really doing, how […]

“The Unemployed Days of Summer” #60

July 11, 2011


There’s something about living at home with your parents that adds an inordinate amount of weight to a pending job interview.  It becomes your everything.  Your key to the garden of hope – to the other side – where normal people live – where you can breathe easy and walk around in your underwear – where […]

April 13, 2011


I was late to my first community writing class at the Comsewogue Public Library.  As you may have imagined, it was because my father needed to stop at Walmart first for a little swindling action.  Priorities are priorities.  I was lucky he was even doing me the grandiose favor of chauffeuring me to my ‘waste […]

“Laser Lights and Disco Balls” #35

March 15, 2011


They say milk does a body good.  I would, however, argue that martinis do any-body more good.  Or, to be more specific, martinis do a Caucasian body good.  Lest you, my readers, think that I am turning into a lush, or that I am once again touting the benefits of imbibing alcohol, let your fears […]
