Diddle Knabb
Writer of the Month

my mom got us banned from the swimming pool at the trailer park we lived in because she punched our neighbor in the face for walking to her mailbox to get her mail in sexy lingerie. the water in the pool was thick and felt like diving into jell-o but it still fucking sucked not to go swimming. mom had to go to court because our neighbor was getting a restraining order and the judge used the word 'flabbergasted' to describe his reaction to her punching our neighbor in the face. i have never and will never until the day i die use the word 'flabbergasted' in casual conversation because of it.
