This is the column that started what would become 99 columns in 2015 (some you’ve not seen yet) for CandysDirt.com. I’ve been frequently asked how I got started. It’s simple … revenge! After attending a particularly egregious HOA meeting, I penned a screed to Candy detailing the insanity of the building I lived in. Of course she jumped at the chance to “out” some craziness. By morning, I’d had a rethink about shooting myself in the foot (as you do) and said, perhaps there’s more to me than a one-hit-wonder. She agreed to give me a shot.
For this first column, I was especially touched by Fabian Hernandez’ comment, “it’s like an accessory you didn’t even know was missing.”
Enjoy. And here’s to another 99 in 2016!
