This was originally written back in the early spring of 2011.



Maybe I'm just inexperienced. Maybe mine are just cut a bit outside the cloth, but Blind Melon and Lynyrd Skynyrd are little weirdos. I am going by their given names here in the spirit of exasperated mothers everywhere.


It's all the little things they do, really. Take play time. I stay in the room with them for these and we have a blast, but if I move significantly, they assume...
