I watched the neighbor's kid when I was eleven. He was one of us neighborhood ruffians, and he was nine. Imagine that.

How did a boy find himself doing a girl's job? like this:

The boy's father got "fresh" with the babysitters a couple times, then word spread around. Back then, nothing was done about it. It was like a secret that everyone knew.

So he gets me to watch his son: "Dollar an hour. He'll be sleeping. Just watch TV and don't eat all the Entenmann's."

Hah? Watching Taxi and Hill Street Blues for pay?

Hell yes, I'd do it again, same price. But I'd bring a bottle with me of course.

Been over there aged eight. It was so boring and horrible, back in the day pre wall-fall east germany was a better ride.
Poor people handing out tickets, extra for adults, "whats in that bagback", a "banana gun?", sir "are you sure you are from here"? Spell "popcorn" please then, you "dunno, what?"...
Five gallons of beer? Interesting. And what was served for main course?

Today I learned that the female ghost in my house is named Marjorie. and she's a redhead and she smokes.
This is for real i even sensed this ghost and heard things but mianly when
I'd been drinking heavily but sometimes i heard shit and it made me go look like somebody says "HELLOO" right in your room and noone is there. She is pretty cool i said and the chick here said no she isnt cool she;s suckin the energy from you. I say well what could it be, she gets the combined energy of bourbon and weed and we all have a good time
and that seems to be the way it went down
cheers man i am fucked

And you named your wife "Marjorie" exactly why?

Funny note: I got two bland russian gigs going, one is my future ex, the other puts me into the grave.
The former is making an art out of doing both to me. Still able to grab a healthy load of the latter while going drunk-nuts.

I learned today that 'made in China' gadgets for $9.95 probably don't work right out of the box and you need to hang on to that receipt. And watch out for those nose hair trimmers. They'll pull the hairs out by their follicles! Ouch!
Found myself in the Matrix and took the red pill. Now I want the blue pill and my bottle and leave me alone.

pulling hairs out from the inside of my nose will give me ingrown hairs= interior nose pimples.

Do not do this

Also made/sold candles that looked like ice cream sundaes, cleaned houses, raked leaves, fetched soda for a fat old man who couldn't walk much, ran circuses in my backyard (little brother was every one of the animal acts), I forget what else. Didn't have a newspaper route, because girls couldn't do that back then (sheesh!) Yeah, and had a coupla perv daddies try to get funny with me. Eww. You. Are. So. Old. (hah, they were probably thirty, but that was incredibly elderly to me at the time.) Babysitting was great. After the little dears were asleep, Saturday night was mine. Carol Burnett, Mary Tyler Moore, Bob Newhart. Sunday afternoons, TZ reruns. Just me, a tv that required rabbit ears and my foot atop it to run, and all the Shasta soda my rotting teeth could handle.

I learned that "drunk-sitting" isn`t half as much fun as babysitting is

In those days you could take the earnings made and deposit some of it in a bank account and get interest. It was possible to finance a college education by savings made as a kid. Today, forget about it!

Too much of everything is just enough.
