Read This

Today I'd like to send readers to My Odd Sock, written - extremely well - by a gentleman dealing with multiple sclerosis and chronic illness with intelligence and humor. Here's how he describes himself and his blog:

THIS is the best you could do?
You have before you the vast, unbounded expanse of the Internet to discover answers to things like “Why do dogs sniff each other’s butts?”  But no, you choose to learn more about My Odd Sock?
Your mother & I hang our heads in shame.
Obviously, you ended up here because you mistyped…Or, you have too much time on your hands.  Either way, you have stumbled upon the home to my humor, my thoughts and my complete waste of Internet technology.
My Odd Sock is my glimmer of inspiration, a creative dream of a lifetime!  (Sad isn’t it?)
Actually, no inspiration needed.  I am a former advertising copywriter just looking to keep my writing chops sharp.
 My life began as an embryo after my father flashed a sly smile at my mother.  (His gold tooth would get her every time!)
Upon graduation from The Ohio State University with a scholarly 2.3 GPA, I pursued a brief career as a stand-up comedian, followed by 22 years of work in the media.
Currently, I share a modest abode in Northeast Ohio with my lovely bride and two teenage sons. And my ever-present cane you ask?  I walk with it not because I am a fan of tap dancing, but because in 1997 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
Hence, the revelation of My Odd Sock.
Hey, you clicked here.  Not me.
Enjoy the ride.
