Tulpen: That's me. The one writing the words. I've loved that name since high school when I read The 158 Pound Marriage by my favorite wordsmith. Tulpen is German for Tulips.
Al: That's who I'm married to. He likes bad words too. He loves the name Al. Al is a regular guy. A stand up guy.
Owen: That's my first born. I named him after my favorite character; A Prayer For Owen Meany should be every one's favorite book. Owen says words with his mouth and his hands. He's Deaf.
Bea: That's my baby girl. Old lady names are my favorite. Bea is not Deaf but she can make words with her hands too. She's three, so the words that come out of her mouth crack my shit up.
These are my favorite people on the planet. I love them fiercely, even though they often make me say bad words.
