The Homeless Editor: When the storyteller becomes the story

Thursday, May 7, 2020
Lou Gehrig kiss my ass — because I’m the luckiest man on the face of the Earth.
I know some folks don’t like me using the term “homeless” because I have saved a little money and I have a roof over my head, but don’t think for a second I take that for granted. I also have a laundry basket killed with shelf-stable food purchased when the pandemic was new. I’m working hard to stretch my savings because who knows how long it will take me to find a job? (As an aside, it’s surprising how much pudding is shelf stable.) However, the general term for someone who doesn’t have a permanent residence is “homeless.”That stark word doesn’t belie my spirit, though.
