Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! It was 95 in Chicago today and I am hella grumpy about it! This week's topic comes from Johnny Wallflower and Bondcliff, who want to know the Things You've Done That You Would Never Tell Your Mother. Or father. Or guardian. Or boss. Or thesis supervisor. Or android caregiver. Or miscellaneous authority figure. Whatev. You get the idea!
I just wanted to call myself out. As Mark Twain said there are Liars and Damned Liars. And then there is me. Some where in between. I just wanted everybody to not go after Granted for calling me out. Granted it's ok. It was only a matter of time. But I want to assure you, and he, that the "essence" of my stories are indeed true and where they are not "truth" let that not interfere with your enjoyment of them. Even IF said enjoyment is directly proportional to mocking me. Which I not only deserve but enjoy. The question is is THIS the right venue for these sotries? Perhaps we need a "Stories" section. Robocop is Bleeding would have a much deserved creative outlet. And there would be place for my Damnable Lies. Wouldn't THAT be awesome! Anyway. Those of you that wish verification from here on out I will try to create some mechanism for that where I can. Where it won't ruin the point of the story. But I warn you... if, like me, your high is derived from being cynical you may be disappointed in the dull sobriety of the exercise.
