Daily Distractions

Need a little a distraction from reality? Here is an unpolished collection the weird, the silly and the sometimes-serious at Wild Dingo. It's a blog about nothing, yet about everything.  You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll even learn something. But this is not a writing sample. It's just a place to kick back and crack open a cool Core's 16-ouncer and lose yourself in the kooky. For my professional pieces, see my portfolio.

The Complaint Department

"Mom! Juicy is touching my feetie-feets! WTF?" "Chill, Daddy-O. It's not like it's gonna kill you to have a little cuddle."

But that's another story […]
