Somewhere between Bell's Palsy and death

Why are there little bugs flying out of my toilet?
Seriously, I've got these little gnat-like things surrounding my commode, and I can't figure out why, because if there's anything consistently clean in the crib? It's the can. Ew.

Got the news today that my 17 year-old cousin got arrested and put in juvie; seems she and my crazy aunt were arguing because Cousin (for our purposes, we'll call her Juliet) lied to her yet again, and when Crazy Aunt told Juliet she would be going to therapy and liking it, fisticuffs ensued and Juliet jacked Crazy Aunt in the mouth (which is, like, the dumbest thing in the world since Crazy Aunt? Is a kickboxer with a blackbelt. I mean, she may be overweight and out of shape now, but she's still 5'11, and I don't think kickboxing is a skill you just unlearn). And Crazy Aunt is pressing charges, and I say, "You're damn RIGHT you better be pressing charges." Girl's got to learn that there are consequences to your actions (a trait that seems to be lost on the bio-fam sometimes), and if this is the way it has to be, well, I think she made a real unfortunate choice for a lesson. What scares me, though, is that the next choice she makes will be to become a balls-out thug instead of getting the shit scared out of her; I have absolutely no gauge as to which one it's going to be, either.

Anyway, I'm taking Crazy Aunt to the court appearance tomorrow, so I'm sure I'll have news at some point afterward.

It is the job of a good person to be honest. To be self-aware. To deliberately explore the fault lines of your character and try desperately to not inflict suffering in this strange, ghost-ridden world of worked and fabricated objects. Sometimes the jobs of writer and good person coincide. But more often they don’t. There are way more writers in the world than there are good people.
