I've written about my brother's drinking before. Here's a post from Christina -- she had a bad drinking problem at one point. The post isn't about her trials though. Nor is it in her usual rough-and-tumble, take-no-prisoners, mad f-bomber style. Powerful stuff. Check it out.
Man, I had the worst dream last night. Or maybe the second worst. Anyway, heads up, faithful manateans -- this isn't a typical light-hearted or funny post, so feel free to hit the ejection button. Things will definitely be more light-hearted in the next post.
My mom always told us kids we had a dad in a million. It's something moms say. But now that I think about it, she was right. My dad wasn't rich or an intellectual, but he was a hell of a guy and I think you would have liked him.
