Oddly enough, I have a Florida Man in my life. He was Hawaii Man but now he lives in Florida. I don’t think he’s allowed to enter Hawaii ever again. He was arrested after his second DUI and went to jail in Florida. He’s currently sober (as far as I know).

I don’t hear from him much anymore. One of his ex-girlfriends contacted me through Facebook many years ago. She saw that I was active on his page and I think he had mentioned me to her. I’d never heard of her before but I agreed to talk to her because she said she had information about Hawaii Man that was urgent. Who knew that one contact would become so important? I talk to her about 12 times a year, and it was nearly daily at one point.

Hawaii Man has no idea how lucky he is to have such caring friends. It took a village to get him the help he needed.

I hope Florida Man gets help and his son doesn’t follow in his footsteps. Hawaii Man’s kids are exceptionally talented and made their own paths.

Far more interesting internally than externally. I write to quiet the voices. Deleted Facebook & Twitter thereby immediately quieting 1000’s of voices.
