I moved to California in February 2008. It was tough for a couple reasons – but I won’t get into that now.
Anyhow, one night I was driving home and I was thinking about a bunch of things, among them this kind of thing (short version: my mom came with me to California, drove me to work and dropped me off then was heading back to Arizona. In dropping me off, she started to cry – which got me crying).
Mother’s Day was coming up on that particular night – so I thought up this “poem.” The word poem, as per usual on this site, is used very loosely.
When I see you cry,
It makes me cry.
So I just wanted to say,
In addition to the “poem” there’d be two sad faces. And, because my sense of humor is weird – I thought this would be hysterical if done in crayon.
After finishing up the “Mother’s Day” stuff I put it into a book. I was going to see my family in June, so I called the book “Happy Whatever Day It Is!” I had two copies printed from Blurb.com (a site that lets you print your own books – thus allowing me to feel like a legit author, without the hassle of needing talent/luck/whatever). Here for your entertainment/fear are some of the things from the book.
In short – sort of funny, sort of pathetic, sort of endearing … Sort of Brad Stanley (zing!).
(Oh ANNNNND – The pause button will probably be needed – it goes too fast and I’m too lazy to fix it. Sorry folks.)
