Sh*t I Say: “And, Scene!”
Today is the first day of the April A to Z Challenge. During this month I will be writing blog posts every day (with breaks on all Sundays except this one) about the topic “Sh*t I Say” starting with each consecutive letter of the alphabet. This is one crazy project, y’all.
This is my cousin, Jason. My children like to call him Chicken. Brady in particular likes to roar his name, as in “CHICKEN!!!” They love him. They often tell me “I miss Chicken,” or “I want to hang out with Chicken.”
But Jason is a 30 year old man living the young fabulous life in West Hollywood. He dips a toe in suburbia when he comes to visit – and then goes back to his busy celebrity-filled existence. It is always a joy to spend time with him. He is very entertaining.
