Hello all! Welcome to the inaugural (I just looked up “inaugural” and I’m astonished to see that it means just what I intended! Namely: “serving to set in motion”) post of my new blog, Teenagers: God’s Revenge on Mankind. Anyone who has seen my act knows that I pursue the lighter (and heavier) side of being married with teenagers. It’s true that I’ve been quoted as saying that I believe God created teenagers to punish us so we would know what it felt like to have someone created in our own image that denied our existence.
The purpose of this blog is to explore issues related to being married, raising children, even wandering around in the “empty nest” – that state of grace that many dread, only to come to appreciate, or long for, only to come to dread.
However, I’d like this to be different from my normal gigs – the ones where I do all the talking and you do all the laughing. I’d like this to be more of a dialogue – a community conversation. My hope is that we’ll all learn something, and have fun in the process.
Are you in?
