Meet The Parents

I have it on good authority that my parents now know about my blog. That's because I told them.

A couple years back I was convinced they knew. I wrote a similar post, asked you to say hi and promised things wouldn't change. But as it turns out, they knew nothing. On Easter that became clear when we all started talking about my site and my dad said, "you have a blog?"

Now I know things won't change because I've been writing under the assumption that they've been reading for years now. And that assumption certainly hasn't stopped me from speaking my mind. Or talking about midget tossing. Or saying fuck.

So, everyone, say hi to my parents. For real this time.

Hello Cacti parents!

Hello parents! You have to be proud of the man your son has become. We love hearing about the family and the trials and tribulations of parenthood through the eyes of your son. He can put comedy into a situation and makes some of us not feel so shitty about our own days.
