Postcard From The Edge

One for the trouble, two for pussy and foreign carz....

What up, kids? It's ya boy, Uncle Zed, the future of the funk.

Well, I've been in Florida since Saturday. The weather hasn't been ideal and the family is on my gotdamn nerves, but I've tried to relax in between the bullshit.

The high point of this trip has been meeting my brother's kids. I've sent them presents and talked to them on the phone, but this was the first time I got to meet them. The kids are 6 (the twins) and 5. All three of them are the best thing he's ever done. Quite honestly, I think he was lucky to have a babymother like her. That cat has a substance abuse problem. Before that, he had a kindness abuse problem. Fuckin' idiot.

My nephew Bugaboo, my sister's son, is quite possibly high strung, or quite probably an asshole in training. Four years old and he's a prodigy at getting his ass whupped.

I think I've witnessed the last year of innocence and sweetness from my niece. Next year she's going to be a teenager.

My cousins and my brother in law, ProSocial, have been steppin' up the game as far as the drinking goes. I promise you, the next vacation I take will be a REAL ONE. An entire week, with no family. I can't take this shit as my only vacation stops every year. I'll fuckin' pay to relax.

I'm leaving Florida tomorrow and I'll be hangin' in Detroit for a couple of days. I'll talk to y'all then.

Thanks for the postcard. I've been wondering when you were going to give us a peek into your holiday. Family events usually aren't amusing at the time, but you can look back later and see the humor.

Enjoy yourself in Detroit.

Glad to see you survived! LOL

Holiday Family Gatherings always give me that trapped feeling. Best to have that available "Family Free" zone to excape to for a few hours...a room at the Hampton Inn, a local friend's house. For me it was the new IHOP on 135th and ACP on Christmas Eve. No hairy family twenty year old drama...just me and my turkey sausage breakfast plate...Yum Yum!

Happy New Years. Have fun in Detroit and we'll see you when you get back!

Man, I was wondering if you were going to post. Hopefully the rest of your trip wasn't that bad.
