This is a true story. Which means, of course that its not that interesting. True stories never are. I dont expect mine to be any different. But "Write what you know", thats what they say, isnt it? At least thats what they say to me. I hope Im not the only one they say it to. I hope its not just their way of saying, "You dont know what the hell youre talking about! Try writing something you do know the hell about, cuz youre driving us crazy with your cockamamie fantasies that are completely implausible, which pulls us right out of the story before you even get started. You four-eyed bastard." I hope thats now what this is. Just a backhanded way of getting in a cheap shot at my mother and my eyesight. The womans dead, for Gods sake. Let her rest in peace, will ya?
