Mommy's First Lesson of the New School Year

Big Brother is skating across the wood floor in his new school sneakers. I ask him to stop because he's about to fall on his face. "But Mommy, I'm fast. Faster than a Jesus Christ Lizard." I get mad. "What did you say?" I ask in a stern voice. He repeats himself, innocently. I go into a lecture about respecting the name of Jesus. "No, but Mommy, there is a lizard called the Jesus Christ Lizard and I learned all about him on the National Geographic website. Intrigued, and half-disbelieving, I ask him to show me. He does.

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
