I found out today that my father died last night. Big time alcoholic and pot smoker. Massive stroke. Now I don't want to get into a whole thing here...but let's just say we weren't tight and leave it pretty much at that. He beat the living crap out of my Mom and me before bailing and leaving us high and dry when I was in second grade. Me, my two kid brothers, and a wife who had never worked a day in her life. And he stiffed Mom on child support. A real sweetheart, huh? But that's not the big news out of the whole thing. The big news is that I found out I have a half-brother I've never met. Joshua. 28 years old, married with a kid, living in Cumming, GA. Maybe I'll hook up with him sometime. Maybe I won't. My uncle says he looks just like me.
So at least he's got that going for him.
