My St. Patrick's Day advice to you

If your elderly dad is a double amputee and confined to a wheelchair, it's probably not a good idea to leave your raging alcoholic brother at home to care for him. When dad gets home from dialysis, and little brother decides to pull him up the front stairs in his wheelchair without strapping him in, it will not end well.

It is kind of scary that you seem to know so much about my family and all the shit that happens to us.

Oh, Polish people don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day, silly!

Cormac did a nice piece on your "Pineapple Tranny" story. It was funnier the second time.

Sorry to hear about your dad and his one attempt at being a stuntman. Get him a knitting needle so he can scrath those itchy places under the cast.

I can't think of anything nice to say. I've been sitting here wishing my mother had been a quadruple amputee, she's have been a lot easier to care for. But that wasn't nice, see. So I'm kind of stuck with resorting to the, "don't say anything at all gambit." But then I did say something. Sorry.

My brother does not rage, take that back.

Holy cow. That was a whopper of a cautionary tale. I'll keep it in mind.
