C-A-R-L

Everybody here knows Carl, and Christi saw him naked when she was 18. Pretty much, you're down at the Chapterhouse, or anywhere, and if you say to your friend "havn't seen Carl lately" Carl will APPEAR magically. Ben and I, 2-3 weeks ago, spelled it "oh, no sign of C-A-R-L" and five minutes later me and the wife ran into Carl. He joined us at our table at a restaurant. He left after he took a caterpillar out of my wife's hair. Last summer, I was telling two of my old high school pals who are single women about Carl. Carl was on his way to sell mushrooms, and arrived and tried to pick them up. He told me later he wanted to marry them. One or the other. Not picky.
Carl was mad at me last week when I was drinking beers at the Chapterhouse. He wanted something from me. That is usually the case. He got mad when I said no. Stevo was there. Carl lives on the margins. He is very sweetnatured and friendly...except when he gets mad. Carl is one short of a six pack.
I was not unhappy to have a Carl-free Friday.
But Lizzie, you are single and 40....Carl would like to meet you.

Oh my... poor Carl. I always feel a little sorry for semi-crazies. They can't help it.

I have photos of him before he became angry.

It is un-Christian of me to write about Carl. Carl does not have his sh!t together. I am lucky that my sh!t is somewhat together.

It was in figure drawing class, before any rumors get started!

Oh we're supposed to behave in a christian manner on this blog? Well shit. I might have to stop posting.

Oh Carl. He took the crazy to a bad place. Some crazy can't be helped. Sure. I have a hard time feeling sorry for crazies that take the crazy to a bad place. And by a hard time, I mean I don't.

Actually, REVEREND Awesome, I visit this blog because it has a somewhat and occaisional devilish quality :) I mean, Stevo is SO polite, and lookit, he is totally into posting the hobo sh!t! Oh, right, Christi, sorry I forgot to mention it (I thought it would be funny for you to connect the dots later and be salacious first).
