And thats just in this paragraph.To survive, he tries to make sense of it all by writing about it. More specifically, he dissects each experience and observation to get to the guts of each story- plucks out all the interesting bits (the funny and absurd- heartfelt or heartwarming- somewhat interesting- and, most importantly, educational)- then throws the lot into his mixing pot and gets creative.What comes out the other end are pieces dripping with wit and wisdom, designed to educate and entertain all who are brave (and generous) enough to take the plunge.Topics include Johnnys escapades as a Great Dane-evading paperboy- the fun & games of traveling- his hero-worship of The Littlest Hobo- a strange compulsion to disco-dance- fly-on-the-wall looks at life with Santa Claus and the Royal Family- his obsession with (his own) weight- managing a running addiction- and his (often painful and frequently embarrassing) search for the Holy Gail.
