Hello, Hello…

It’s me, Joe aka Bald Punk.

I’m here in my apartment, chatting with my lady friend(LF) and the pizza and Chinese delivery guys(aka num and nuts). Scrappy Doodles is nestled snugly in my arms.

LF keeps asking me what I was doing in that past life circa the 1850s. She wants me to say something glamorous, like I was a demon hunter. But that would be a half-truth.

As I sit here, I like to bury my nose in Scrappy D’s neck. He’s an awesome doggie with a palpable life force. Plus he might be a little guy, but he has a muscular frame. When he’s tight in my arms, I really feel like I can drink in his goodness.

Num and nuts like to look at me like I don’t exist, then stare at me like I’m a bug, soaring by their faces. They are totally whacked.

The three of them are drinking red wine, and don’t get mad at me, but I am too. I don’t always drink beer.

Anyway, as to what I was doing in that past life, it was anything but glamorous. And we weren’t necessarily demon hunters. But you have to give me a few days. It’s all kinda coming back to me.

I think the next post will be titled “River Pirates.” I’ll post it next week.

Bye for now.
