"I remember when Tiger was just starting out. Let me set the scene for you. It was the autumn of 2000. We were all talking about hanging chads and Kid A. Tiger looked a little lost in the fourth-floor cafeteria here at 4 Times Square. On his translucent oval tray he carried extra dessert items—whole grain berry tarts and gluten-free fig bars—to give to us more seasoned journalists in exchange for story ideas and advice."

We’ve known about it for over two years now, and I truly felt that I had come to grips with the situation, understanding and realizing that not just an important thing, but THE important thing, was his happiness, and not some preconceived notion about how he “should” be.  I really felt I had made peace with the situation. But, when I got home from work tonight, the first thing I saw when I walked into the living room was a tiny little wheelchair, Junegee-sized.  It hit me hard.

Also, I know it will all be alright.

I mean, who ELSE could have written this sentence?

“I was completely Kentucky-dewed all morning with panther sweat after partaking in 15 pints of old tennis shoe last night.”
