Free to Be Mimsical
I’m doing a special Christmas in July tour, and Elizabeth has allowed me to crash on her metaphorical couch.
|Her sexy couch!|
I’m actually kind of excited to be writing on our nation’s birthday, well alright it’s not TECHNICALLY the U.S.’s birthday, but let’s just roll with it. Because I want to talk about America.
|“You’re all weirdoes”|
And I’m so proud to have been born and raised in the states, having a pretty rich cultural background. I’ve got German, Irish, Dutch, English and even Cherokee ancestry. I’m just a big ole melting pot.
|And a sexy beast.|
Is America perfect? Not by a long shot. Have we always done the right thing? Hah, not even close. Would I trade living here for anywhere else? Absolutely not!
So, in closing, let me just throw this out there. Where else but America could everyone’s sweetheart Bill Pullman have the most awesome speech ever, as brought to us by a German filmmaker.
Jay Mims doesn’t know the meaning of the word quit! He lives with a passive-aggressive Dalek named Steve, and when not writing is learning the mandolin. He writes books and is far funnier on Facebook then in real life. He is terrible at Twitter. His next book "The Gray Ghost Inn" is due out October 15, 2013. Feel free to email him here.
