Doing things differently since the Carter Administration
I was about 7 or so in the mid-1980s and I convinced my friend and I to ride around our neighborhood whilst strutting our stuff on our Big Wheels, asking for cans for Jerry’s Kids. We were supposed to redeem the cans and donate the money. I, of course, did all the talking…and had a different, more sinister plan in mind.
I think we stopped after two or three houses, feeling paranoid by the dead-end street we chose to journey down for my little scheme.
I was so excited: I had made enough money to buy a pack of Garbage Pail Kids! Sorry, Jerry!

Even though my criminal past is where it should be – in the past – I still think I possess the ability to be creative in my endeavors, to manipulate my surroundings, and this post is a plea of sorts for redemption.
