The Florida Mystique

You know, for years I have been wondering, why do so many strange news stories come from Florida and Germany? Is it because people in newsrooms hate Floridians with a burning passion, fueled by jealousy? Or is Florida somehow a beacon for the truly odd/retarded/insane?

The latest 'news' that makes me wonder about the water in Florida? A grandmother driving around with her three year old grandchild ON THE ROOF OF THE CAR. Maybe in a few years, Florida will become a synonym for 'crazy'. "That guy was SO florida, you have no idea." It sounds right already.

Sometimes the craziness turns to cruelty. My friend Paul had a lovely Siamese, Amy, that was beaten to death. I don't understand what kind of person can do something like that. I know they are still looking for the monster who did this; Paul and a some generous donors are offering a $4500 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest of the crazy person responsible. If you have any friends in the St. Petersburg area, please pass on the message and a link to his site: www.whokilledamy.com.

Both Chez and I were raised in Florida and can easily attest to the whole crazy/odd/retarded-in-the-not-charming-Forrest-Gump way.

You basically have two choices: (1)stay and let the zombies eat your brains, or (2) get the hell out of Florida and have bat-shit-crazy cocktail stories for the rest of your days.

We chose the latter.

Yes, thank goodness. Now we just need to plan a cocktail party.

I lived in Florida for 2 years and my personal belief is that when the universe shakes, all the crazies fall down to Florida. More nutters (and seniors) per square inch than the surgeon general would POSSIBLY recommend.
