Now that I’m done with these, I won’t be reading Sedaris next.

Instead, I’m reading Nancy Kress’ After the Fall, Before the Fall, During the Fall.

Nancy Kress' "After the Fall, Before the Fall, During the Fall".

Sedaris is next next,

…about a month ago. I carved “GW” into it before it dried.

Not for Bush, the shitty president(s) or the shitty band.

Obviously, this stands for “Grey” and “West,” but when I showed it to KB she asked if it was for George W. Bush. Clearly, after eleven years, she doesn’t know me very well.

Yesterday, they poured even more concrete out back, right next to the slab they poured last month. This time, I tried a little bit harder to make it stand out… and slightly more obvious.

Better.

Still, KB asked if it stood for “WHITE RABBITS? GODDAMN!”

Not my first time defacing city property,

…we took Grey and West to Family Day at the MCA.

There were a bunch of fun activities including designing postcards and painting with tea, but they most enjoyed hanging out with these alien monster creatures.

Aliens!

Monsters!

Alien monsters!

Don't do it, Grey!

This one spoke only in rubber ducky squeaks.

When I was a kid, they’ve would’ve been my favorite, too.

Shadys don’t fear no alien monsters,

We got to see them twice!

…for spending a few days with us on both sides of their trip to/from Orlando!

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Ron Monster! Sixty-five looks good on you. Love ya!

I remember him in his twenties,

…to catch Kevin Hart at the United Center on Saturday night.

Surprisingly, we landed third-row seats on the floor…

Yeah…

…and a couple after-show party passes…

Definitely wasn't expecting that!

…with free food and booze! So we were, you know, pretty happy. Though you wouldn’t know it by the looks on our mugging faces.

Date night!

Thanks to John for making it all happen. (I know a few Johns, but the John I’m talking about knows who he is.)

Feeling spoiled,

What the fuck?!?

I don’t remember that in the move adaptation,

Two G-Ma visits in a month!

…for visiting us twice in the past month.

She taught Grey how to properly throw gang signs,

…Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Thank Christ.

What did I learn? To never read books on a laptop, phone, iPad, etc. Seriously, for whatever reason, it takes me forever.

Anyway, I’m now reading a book I’ve surprisingly never read before: Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

I can't not see Gene Wilder.

Quite a departure from the insanity of the Trump White House.

While I’m reading this one I’m also going to be reading two graphic novels that were recommended to me by my good friend Erik Rose. They are the first installment of Outcast by Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta, and The Black Dahlia by James Ellroy, David Fincher, Matz, and Miles Hyman.

Ping-ponging back and forth between the sweet and the sadistic.

It’s always important to balance out your children’s literature with stories of demon possession and horrifically violent murder.

Sedaris is next,

-Shady

Old Poop!
