I like to describe myself as a humor writer. Someone who looks at the chaos of life around me and finds the funny in it. But, there is something about life in Covid lockdown that suggests I am actually a disaster-seeking opportunist. You be the judge.
Much of what I write about is what is currently going wrong in my life. But now that I am primarily stuck at home–for months on end, watching Netflix until my eyes cross–I’m discovering exactly how boring my writing is without the chaos of things going horribly wrong to report to you. I am worried; does this mean I have I become a danger junkie? Where will this predilection lead? How will I court my next life-on-the-edge-of-the-seat-of-my-pants fix?
Will I start buying butter by the gross and build an igloo in the front yard?
Do I need to take up an exciting hobby like knife throwing? Or perhaps dueling with statuary at forty paces?
(I’m not sure whether the combatants in the preceding conflict will be throwing garden gnomes at each other or possibly reenacting large scale battle replicas with a thousand eerie statues that look like the Weeping Angels from Dr. Who!)
Maybe I will I finally set up a profile on Hot-Flash-Moms.com and get a 1-900 number to promote myself as a Mominatrix–offering to “spank” people via Zoom for failing to call their mothers or send flowers on the appropriate holidays–in exchange for Bitcoin?
Actually, this idea is more for the moms out there than the prospective “Big Boys in Need of Discipline.” Your mother hires me to call and harass you until you become a better, more responsive son. And if my brothers read my blog, yes, this is directed at you for not calling mom more or remembering her on Mother’s Day or her birthday. You asshats! But even I draw the line at being a Mominatrix for my own brothers. *SHUDDER!!*
Where was I? Oh yes, finding the disaster sweet spot.
It seems I need to find a way to indulge my love of near constant chaos without endangering my life or that of my child…preferably without burning my house down in the process. How could I possibly manage that while not leaving my home?
