…Episode 3 is live! Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of setbacks when trying to make a low budget mini-show that details your life’s dysfunction. Trying to get people to work for free is one of them. “Trust me, it’s funny. It’s about crazy parents and life going wrong all the time.” “Yeah, I’m sure, but […]

BLIND DATES GONE AWRY

February 25, 2014

As you may recall, my mother has always gone to great lengths and much embarrassment to score me a date. She’s stopped men in the mall, at Bed Bath & Beyond, and even married men because she couldn’t see their wedding rings with her poor vision. She’s done anything and everything to get me married, […]

I’LL TELL YOU WHAT SUCKS

When you’re a child of crazy parents, you learn to live in your head from a very early age. It’s safe there. It’s also the place where you judge everything in the outside world, to make sense of it all and to make yourself feel okay. You learn to say “Okay, THAT’S f-d up, not […]

I’m a couple of weeks into the new job at the most dysfunctional restaurant ever, and I’m really trying my best to stay positive.  Every time the owner, who I must repeat looks like a mental institution escapee and sounds like a bear or perhaps wild boar, comes into the restaurant, he berates the managers, […]

Now that I’m living with my parents, I’m no longer just living for myself.  I have my mother’s pride and reputation to think about.  So when she volunteer’s my services to her neighbor who needs a babysitter, I try to step forth in the best light possible.  I certainly could use the money, but I’ve […]

To combat the stress of the craziness, both inner and outer, I’ve started doing Tai Chi in the backyard.  Not real Tai Chi, because I’ve never taken a class, but my own version that I’ve made up.  I recall Ralph Macchio in“The Karate Kid”- wax on, wax off – and the old geezers I used […]

When my mother and I come home from Waldbaum’s, where she was trying to use her expired coupon for hair color, we discover that both my father AND my dog are not home.  I immediately get scared and nervous that my father has tried to sell Vito for money, while my mother is very worried […]
