Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

When I was about a boy I made a super long wick about three feet long out of a bunch of firecrackers. My parents had just put new carpet in my bedroom. I was so excited, I guess I didn't realize my surroundings, that I laid it all out on my bedroom floor and lit it. I watched in horror as my new carpet melted with each passing second. Nothing I could do. Then, at the end, it just fizzled. Whew. I spent a long time on my knees with Mom's sewing shears strategically cutting out every little piece of melted tuft. It all looked pretty good by the time I was done.

I was always a little pyro. Our bathroom was covered in ceramic tile. My mom frequently kept a candle burning in the bathroom. She always left her Aquanet on the vanity. How could I resist? I spent a lot of time in that bathroom flame throwing and coating the walls with different designs in fire. She'd come by and say, "What's that smell?". A simple, "Aw, nothing Ma" always sufficed. To this day I don't really know if she never caught on or if she was just giving me the space to do dangerous things. I'll have to ask her when I see her at lunch today.

I love these kinds of stories. Maybe we should compile them in a thread of their own.

Remember playing war with real BB guns and the "one pump" rule that NoOne ever obeyed, except the new kid?

I assume if you understand the significance of this picture you've already seen the 'Muscle Shoals' documentary film. If not, you can stream it on Netflix and maybe some other sources. Worth the watch.

Just returned from the therapist office. Not sure how I feels.

Now I'm going to eat some sauerkraut and strawberries.

Sounds like you might feel pregnant.

I've been working through crap I should've been working through long, long, long time ago.

Please don't do what I've done to avoid help.

Or, whatever. It's your choice.

Nobody knows better than you do.

*if you're damaged* do yourself a favor and seek outside assistance. You can only suppress it for so long.

Thanks man

Another useless fact:


I'm often roughhousing with my youngest step. The other night he punched me and ran. I chased him through the house reslly trying to catch him and then finally he ran out the garage door down the street as he was screaming.

After realizing what this must look like to the neighbors I quietly turned around and walked back inside.

I took a load of trash and debris to the dump today. It’s always a good excuse to put some gravel in my travel.
