Unexcused Absence
Life's got me by the emotional short and curlies, right now. Between my son's high school graduation, planning an open house, ongoing family flustercucks (damn, these people live way too close.) and the annual end of the year work craze, I'm not feeling quite myself.

Last night was Baccalaureate, in which I produced and starred in a personalized episode of "Snot's Landing." (I must say,I was relieved to learn that Baccalaureate is not a casino card game.)

I'm still very weepy over this current, unsettling phase of parental transition. I think, however, that I'm actually getting used to my perpetual state of degenerative affect, as are my friends and family. In fact, my favorite people, right now, are those who are unafraid to look my snot bubbles right in the nose.

All that being said, I won't be posting for a few days, give or take a week, or two. Too many thoughts, not enough time.

Tonight, I close with a little humor, for the season. (I think I made it up, just yesterday, and am feeling quite proud. So, if you've ever heard this one, please, don't tell me.)
What did the momma bird say to her nest full of offspring?

Last one out is a rotten egg.
Damn. Sometimes I crack myself right up.

Really, think about it......
