The Ever Changing Steve: All Straight, All The Time

Some best friend I have: Stanley says all my self-portraits make me look gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I assure you: I am all hetero. To prove it, I present four portraits.

"American By Birth...

...Christian By Choice." But it's a child, not a choice.

Bread 'n' Pops

One can see the oddest things at grocery stores. This partially eaten hunk o' bread was resting on a display of ice pops. Mmm.

Six Pounds of Cheese...Sauce

Don't laugh: it's aged.

Made In Taiwan

Even shopping can be a teaching-learning experience. During our beach vacation, I took my son Max to a souvenir shop because I'm a fan of bad trinketry. In my younger daze, I wanted to be a marine biologist. I loved sharks. Max found this terrible trinket--a set of shark jaws. It served as a good teaching tool. I showed my rapt student that a shark has lots of replacement teeth in rows, ready to march forward, because a shark loses its teeth frequently. "Max, this is why you should brush your teeth--you don't have any replacements after your adult teeth come in." "Daddy, where does this kind of shark live?" "Taiwan! It says so right on the gold sticker."

"Great for Dipping!"
