K is for Kurt

Dear Kurt,
You fell down some steps some years ago and scrambled your beautiful egg.
I was real sad about that.

I would have very much liked to have met you. Maybe pressed the bottoms of our feet together. Maybe held your hand.
Whatever you were comfortable with, really.

I just think you were the tops. I read your books and you made me believe what I already knew to be true.

But listen: the dumb confused kid I was and still continue to be, well, she thanks you. All your apples and dots and hi-hos, well, they kind of shaped me into the lady I am.

You'll be happy to know that I'm farting around and trying my best to write every day.

Hi Kendra, found your blog through the challenge and I'm really enjoying it. So much so I nominated you for an award over on my blog today!

I also found your blog thanks to the A to Z Challenge, and I had the same idea as Amanda...I nominated you for a Liebster award in my post at You are free to accept or not, I just wanted my little corner of the world to know that your blog caught my eye so they can check it out too! ☺

Damn, love the Vonnegut post.

Love the Girl Scout camp post.

Simply adore the dark, twisted, fun-loving and chemically imbalanced Beer post.

You have a fabulously hard-edge yet whimsical way with the language. You got a new follower in me. Fabulous writing, lady. Just fabulous.

Your fellow A to Z Challenger and new friend. Cheers.

I've really enjoyed these posts. It made me think of all the people who I have never corresponded with from the past, but who deserve a shout-out. Thank you for the inspiration! Your blog was suggested by a Liebster awardee.
