Bendy Grumpy

Most recent Grumpy column in Tsunami. Weird in that it's the third version of something I was trying to write for the blog. Came out different each time. Quite like this version. It's basically an amalgam of many benders had with good friends. Some of them are faint memories from years ago. Others are more recent fun times.

I love swan-diving into the abyss, I really do. But I also like that feeling of swimming to the surface and seeing the clearness again.

New people in my life now, and I totally adore... hang on. Tour de France. Gotta go.

Very, very good. I think you definitely got it right this time. I really like the Ben Herr joke. ;-)

Why thank you. Personally Hunter 'Schoolboy' Thompson made me giggle more. Nothing like exagerated claims of hardcoreness.

Maybe you should have used 'sissy pants' instead.
Great article.

Thank you MM. Or perhaps Hunter Softcock Thompson. Man how I'd loved to have said that to his face and survived.

Yes he did love his arsenal of guns
