I tend to ask myself, “Is this just my fucking life now?” I’ve been asking myself that a lot lately followed up with, “Is this just what four-year olds are like??” Four has been a weird ride – from beginning to get in trouble at school for making bad choices, to becoming a know it […]

A Special Place is a new weekly series in which we’ll cover all of the special places in hell and all of the special people who might reside there. This week, I’m talking about those people. You know, the ones who have 911 on their speed dial because they’re allergic to diversity. I have never […]
