CaptCliff and His Tinkerbell/Philly Girl with Brass Knuckles

About captaincliff

Psychologist by day, insomniac Pirate blogger by night, this Child of God likes to share sarcastic social commentary as well as topsy-turvy observations about life, love and the pursuit of zaniness, a functional form of insanity in an increasingly insane world

    YIKES, Cliff! Well, wanted to make just a couple of comments- 1)WOW can you ever write- (which I say every time I read your blog- along with assuming that you gleaned much from HPHS English (and the 3-3 and 2-3-3, etc) 2) I am so sorry to read about all of the emotional hardships you have endured…from childhood on…(now I know why your dad drove carpool…) 3)You are incredibly strong, brilliant and funny- so yes, I think Larry David should contact you! (Here’s to much better days ahead, too!)

      Thanks so much Deb. I really appreciate it. This took some extra guts because 1) I still feel vulnerable and mentally/emotionally in transition or recovery from this repeated codependent relationship pattern and 2) Im usually either the listener and witness/validator of others and not the sobbing broken Humpty Dumpty….but you know what…Ive gotten a lot of nice feedback and really genuine responses, even from people who i haven’t ever gone “there” (open heart to open heart) before. I wish our culture would have made that type of empathic emotional connection a more prominent value. Keep reading, writing and connecting. I get you…..i think/i hope.

    This was much funnier than I remembered.

      Tragedy like wine probably gets better with age. In hindsight one also realizes what a Sophie Tucker meets David Carpman victim we play in our well worn narratives and that’s also funny along with a tad bit embarrassing.
