Nothing New Here (Or Is There?)

I’m not writing anything new this week.

Instead, I’m going to try and remember who Sally the throw up girl was. I vaguely remember her. Drinking was involved? Then vomit? Outside a car?

Is that it? But who was she? How did she end up in our circle?

This brings me back to the time in 1976 when I was hit by a cannonball. After all, it was the Bicentennial, so stuff like that was bound to happen.

I was covering a story on the ships in the New York harbor and they decided to have some cannon play, see who could sink the other boat faster. Something like that.

Well, one errant shot to the throat later, I’m no longer writing for that esteemed publication plus I was unable to speak for over 15 years. That’s what a crushed larynx does to you.

I was only able to eat strained peas and lime Jell-O since my doctor said only green food would help. He’s the professional so I did what I was told and still managed to gain over 350 pounds during that 15 years. Weird.

So…….who was Sally the throw up girl?

Stephen Johnson

The idea of building a website with Bob came from Stephen in the days of message boards and chat rooms. We settled on the name and the rest is history. Retired since he hit the ripe age of 25, he spends most his time doing odd-jobs around the house and digging thru trash bins for "stuff that's still good." Stephen has contributed several short stories and hosted the "Lunatic Ravings" column since the beginning (1999). The idea of writing weekly columns came from Stephen before blogs or blog sites ever existed. So, I guess that makes him THE FIRST BLOGGER IN THE WORLD!!!
