The Petco clerk tells me she’s like a cockroach.
“I’ve see everything, honey. This ain’t gonna kill me.”
Who wore it better? Bieber or the lesbians?
She wears a pair of one-size-too-big jeans cinched at the waist by a thick brown leather belt. Her hair is styled like Justin Bieber’s circa 2012. Her laugh is loud like shattered glass.
“And if it does, I’ve got news for you. We’re all gonna go sometime.”
For some reason, her bravado makes me feel better.
Mr. Rogers said in times of crisis to look for the helpers.
I say look for the helpers.
Also, look for the butches.
I walk to my car with necessary supplies: cat food, litter and some words about not being afraid.

I’m another year older and another year wiser.
I enjoyed a low-key birthday celebration with my beautiful wife, who agreed to see a movie about the world of professional wrestling with me. Now that’s what I call true love.
We capped our night out with dinner at a Mexican restaurant.
W was up last night with heartburn, and I suffered the consequences of eating leftover Mexican food for breakfast. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but now I’m questioning whether I really am any wiser than I was last year.
W got me some thoughtful gifts:
A little red flask.
An RBG jersey:
Plus, tickets for a concert featuring rock goddess Joan Jett.
Looks like this butch made out like a bandit because all I really wanted was to spend the day with my wife.
