Writer Shel M. Carrigan, lives outside of Baltimore with wife, two kids, and dog. Taking applications for sister wives, but mostly just to be the person who cleans up dinner and put the kids to bed for us so we can watch TV. Been writing The Surfing Pizza for over a decade, got a fancy degree in writing and a couple of minor publications. This is going to be the year I become rich and famous.
I began life four days after Christmas, which means people are sick to death of buying presents by the time it’s my birthday, and I usually just get gift cards. I was born in 1980. My current life ambition is to win something, anything in a raffle. I have never won a raffle prize and I find that hard to believe. Hell, I even won the Mega Millions twice — 17 bucks total.
I am pretty liberal and listen to rock and roll. I am a Beatles geek. I am fervently against double dipping and I rage into the good night against burritos that are still frozen in the middle after cooking. I am of average height and weight. I have a nice head of hair. I am training to become strong. As a child, I never had a cavity.
