Very good read. Had me tearing up a little at work.
It’s interesting. I am not sure I would’ve made the same choice to tell your Grandfather. As a person, I like to think that the two most defining characteristics I have are my belief in truth and my dedication to honesty. But even then they are not absolute. I know a few secrets about my family which do not involve me… Read more
Thank you for an astonishingly compelling and revealing story. I can’t imagine what you’re going through but I’ve very glad you found a way to process it and decided to share your experiences.
So I accidentally lied. He does not have a scarf...though I could have sworn he did. He does however have a hat and boots and is still adorable and useful. And I photographed him in my tiny cast iron because it has a similar story... Went from "why do I need a pan this small?" to "this is my favorite pan".
You see, normally I’m up for all the ideas that get posted here, learning new things, trying out new ideas, that’s part of what keeps life fresh.

It’s one of those delights where they lay absurdity on absurdity but somehow manage to play it with a straight face until you just hit a moment when the entire towering edifice of absurdity suddenly strikes you and you just die laughing. Without ever losing the… Read more
Chunt’s wedding is going down on a special Hello From the Magic Tavern. Lots of special guests and hilarious hi-jinks. Still one of the funniest podcasts out there!
My favorite way to describe Other Bothers to friends I’m trying to talk into listening to it is that it’s about three random fantasy future people- a PR flunkie, a file clerk, and a cafeteria lady - get sucked back in time and told it’s up to them to save the world, except contrary to usual genre convention, they… Read more
Thanks for the suggestions, and for my new term, “actual-play”. My personal favorite in that category is one called The Film Reroll, where they use the Gurps framework to try to re-create famous movies and action scenes, and frequently veer way off course! Favorites include Indiana Jones for quality, and Wizard of Oz… Read more
