Celebratory mini-post

One of my clients saved someone else's life on their lunch break by performing the Heimlich maneuver on them. This has nothing to do with me or my job but I'm super proud of him. I'm writing out a card that I'm going to mail him tomorrow.

Old treasures

I was going through old bookmarks today and I found this gem. It's a few years old but it still made me smile when I watched it again.

Milestone day!

My client with the foot fetish got his ID today! This is something that he has been trying to get since 1999. It's easy to forget how difficult it is to obtain government-issued anything when you no longer have a birth certificate, social security card, driver's license, or health insurance. Since I started working with him last August, I've been trying to figure out a way through the massive catch-22 and it was tedious, to say the least. But things are on the up and up now since he has the temporary ID and is just waiting for the real thing to come in the mail.

When I asked him what the first thing he was going to do once he got his ID was he told me, "Go to the nudie bars and get the fuck out of Minnesota."

Part of me wants to give him a couple singles to help celebrate.

April Fool's Day mini-post

Six years ago, I called my parents and told them that my brother had eloped with his psychotic girlfriend of the time. My parents have always been good about keeping their noses out of their kids' business, but I knew that my mom was desperately hoping that the five-year-long roller coaster of a relationship would end.

When my mom started bawling into the phone I sheepishly murmured "....April Fooooooool's....." and decided to retire the tradition.
