…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,

…and a few famous wrestlers showed up to our party.

Sting, distracted by toys and cookies, mostly ignored the ring action…

Cookies beat wrestling!

…and “Mean” Gene Okerlund just drooled all over the place.

He's so mean!

Road Warrior Hawk made a yummy salsa…

Salsa Hawk!

…and Chyna got a tiny bit drunk.

Pretty spot-on, actually.

Big shock, I know.

That wig has come in handy twice now,

Check, please!

I know it may seem like I sit at home all day long, drinking beer and updating The Blarg, but the truth is I spend much of my day writing.

Lately, most of my writing has been on long-form projects. Because of this, I sometimes write a short (most times comedic, other times not so much) to break up the monotony of those longer projects. But while these shorts are fun to write as an exercise, nobody ever really gets to read them.

To remedy this, I’ve decided to share them here. I’m doing this for two reasons:

1. I like to share! That, and it’s better than having them sit on my computer.

2. It’s my hope that someone might be inspired to actually do something creative with them. Want to film one as a short? Awesome. Interested in animating one? Go for it. Feel like performing one live onstage? I dare you. All I ask is that you give me credit and send me a copy of the final product.

The forty-fourth of Shady’s Shorts is called It Could Be Worse.

Back when I was living in Columbus, Ohio my friends and I started a quote wall. Whenever a bit of brilliance (or otherwise) poured out of someone’s mouth, somebody would yell “Quote!” thus nominating it for Quote Board status. The quote then had to be seconded by someone (it almost always was), and then it would be written down to be forever immortalized on the Quote Board.

This is the modern day equivalent of that classic piece of my past.

QUOTE BOARD:

“Great job, Daddy!”

Say quiche!
