Life sometimes ain't all it's cracked up to be.
I know you've heard that line a thousand times. So have I. But have you actually experienced it? Have you had life sneak up behind you and whack you upside the head with a baseball bat? Knocking the breath out of you? Stopping time? No? Cool you can stop reading then. Oh and I want your life.
I grew up here in Kansas City so there are a lot of memories associated with this place. I remember summers so hot my leather (pleather) pants would stick to my butt and skipping down to the corner store after church for grape soda and hot cheetos. I remember the smell and sounds of summer camp and the flutter of first time crushes.
