I Have Officially Made It: I am some kid's imaginary friend.

Yes, it's true. Remember a while back in the post "Kids Eat the Darnedest Things"? Well, the kid that I mentioned can't stop talking about me, apparently. I was talking to his dad today and he mentioned that his boy likes to play with his friend Matt. I'm all, "Hey, that's cool. He's got a little friend named Matt." Then he corrected me saying, "No, it's you. He thinks you're in the room with him playing trucks and watching Blues Clues." I then asked, "So, what exactly happens when 'we're' playing?" He then relates this morning's episode:

Well, he's sitting on the floor and I'm trying to get ready for work and he looks up at me and says, "Sharma's sad. Her shirt green. Matt fix Sharma. She's happy."

I don't know who this Sharma is or what exactly I did to her, but I'm glad that I am capable of making a woman happy. I don't know; I think this is really cool, but I hope that I don't all of a sudden become this kid's bogey man. This has had me thinking: Maybe I should start getting my shit together, so I can get married and have some kids of my own. Oh, lordy-lord! End of times is nigh.

You know, it's the little things that bug the shit out of me with Blogger. I tried to put a link there for you guys and it starts effin' with me again. Guess where I put a question mark and there's a period, for some unexplained reason? I flip to my edit post page and it's there. WTF? This shit is too much for me. I'm hittin' the sack. Maybe I'll do a lo-fi blog, by snail mailing hand-written posts out to y'all. I'd even draw you some cool pictures. Stay tuned folks. There will be a story coming up about a magical tumor.

Get married?
Have kids?
What kind of fool would do that??
I am totally digging the lo-fi blog idea, because I personally am so bad at mail I have Christmas cards I still haven't mailed out, I am sure blogging that way would be a real success for me.
I have to say, being a kid's imaginiary friend is the way to go, you get points and you don't even have to be there.
I wonder if I can set that kind of a deal up with my kids.

Scott~This is crazy talk. But, If I remember correctly, you're next birthday makes you only 30 years old.

Logo~It all scares the shit out of me. I'm beginning to accept the fact that I'll never feel ready, so I'll just have to quit being a baby. Thirty six sounds like a good age to get married.

Crystal~I've got an honest-to-God slim jim. Don't make me go back to juvie trying to prove my friendship. Oh shit, that's right, I'm too old for juvie, now.

i have this theory... everyone that i think is "alright" always has very interesting handwriting...
if there were a "Kaczynski" font type i know a LOT of people that would use it...
oh sorry, it all makes sense in my own head...

Ha...slim jims are what you use to break into cars with, Crystal. But, I'll go down to 7-11 and get some for whoevers.

Vera~My handwriting is unique and bad. It speaks volumes about me.
