Crazy land

Some friends of ours have a flaky daughter, who’s 21 and has 3 kids (all at once — triplets). She “tried” to commit suicide today; I use quotes because it was one of those attention-getting mechanisms, the usual post-fight-with-boyfriend kind of thing. She did leave a note, “love to everyone and sorry I’m such a screw-up” or some such tripe.

It backfired on her though; she got a bit more attention than she wanted. They're keeping her in the hospital overnight for “observation” — meaning they’re going to ship her to a psychiatric hospital as soon as there’s an opening. whoops!

Wife’s bro and his wife are splitting up too. Everyone’s wigging out around here. We probably ought to have the water checked or something.


  1. Stick to the wine....that water sounds yucky. There are days like this one...me I blame it on the stars. "Moon is in bummer" or "What? Mercury retrograde is just another name for Mercury ass backwards"

    Sometimes following this alternative religion stuff has it's advantages. ;^D

    Take care and keep writing...it's kept me kind of sane for almost 50 years..."emphasis on kind of"

  2. Sally, that “Moon is in bummer” crack was one of the best laughs I've had all week!


Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
