We have all experienced situations that didn’t go as planned, but most of us have enough dignity and common sense to keep them to ourselves. I, on the other hand, don’t appear to have any dignity or common sense. I turned many of my situations and embarrassing moments into a monthly column for Midwest Boomers from 2010-2014.
Some of my stories are told from the mind of a boy growing to manhood, while others are told through the eyes of a confused, middle-aged man, who is still struggling to find maturity or … rebelling against it. I’m a Baby Boomer, born halfway through the last century, and at my age I’m living proof that growing old is not necessarily synonymous with growing up.
When I tell a story, I want it to jog the memories of the listeners so they might recall similar situations from their past. I believe our life is our story and each of us has one worth telling.
