Shakedown













I am rightfully proud of my accomplishments. But do I bask in the warm glow of my life’s best works? Of course not.

Instead, I beat myself up over the inevitable failures, disappointments and petty indignities that are part and parcel of this mortal coil.

So when I visited the Lansing Correctional Facility yesterday, I thought, "Well, at least I’ve never been locked up."

That’s my pathetic consolation prize.

    The 20 worst hours of my life that I spent in a detox tank after getting a DUI convinced me that I never, ever, want to spend ANY amount of time in a "purty hoosegow" like that.

    The old pen is handsome, I suppose, Panos. But I'm with Anon. I can only begin to imagine the horror pinned inside that pleasing exterior.

    Well, granted.
