But I Digress
But I Digress is the collection of twenty nonfiction stories that highlight my life between middle school, college, and the post college years. Although long-forgotten and even slightly repressed, I began telling these very tales to my students to entertain them during their lunch times, and they became the stuff of legends. The stories include the last time I went trick-or-treating as a teenager in Buffalo, swimming in a sewer in Ohio, learning to call alligators in Florida, committing mutiny on a longliner on the Grand Banks, getting thrown off by a farting horse, pooping my pants in London, being beaten up by the local paperboy, receiving my first tattoo as a sixteen year old, getting and then losing Dizzy Gillespie’s autograph, meeting the last Mohican in Providence, hiking the Appalachian Trail, working on a lobster wharf and on an offshore lobsterboat in Rhode Island, surviving a stint on a processing ship in the Aleutian Islands, and a whole host of other bad decisions that I’ve made over the years that I have, somehow, lived to tell about.
