Faith, Folly, and a Green Pontiac

In the the spring of 2003, I bought my first car. Well, my second car, actually. The first one was a gift from my Grandpa. That was in 1996, the year my second car was made, ironically. But in 2003, I bought my first car. A green Pontiac Grand Prix. A four-door SE model, complete with…

“the Bible Clearly Says…”

It’s Thursday, which, according to my calendar, is “Blog Day.” I am exhausted. Three weeks of unmitigated sleep disruption has finally begun to soften, and I am feeling the effects of coming down from my adrenaline high. I don’t want to write. I don’t want to think. I want to sleep. I want to not…
