- tragic backstories explain bad deeds but they do not excuse them
I am so glad my mother gave my brother—-my college flunkie, on-probation, delinquent brother—-the working vehicle while I—-the college graduate who is living on his own and supporting himself with two jobs—-get the car that is falling apart.
I’m so grateful. Thanks, Mom.
- Me: OMG You'll never guess who just came out to me!
- Friend: Derek?
- Friend: Steve?
- Friend: Andrew?
- Friend: Billy?
- Me: ....no.........?
- Friend: Shit. Forget I said anything.
I’ll add to this: few things have been as inspiring to me as reading or watching something that is just a giant pile of crap, so I know that if *this* crap got published/made/released, whatever I’m working on is certainly worthy of the effort.
