There is a new chapter that has thrown itself upon the faithful readers of Destroyed BM. It will be called The Chapstick Breaking Point.

There once lived a man named Chapstick Ferguson. Or at least he was thought to have lived. For years he was thought to merely exist in fiction, in stories that parents tell their children to teach them life lessons. He has shown himself to me, very similar to they way people “find Jesus.” It is just as absurd as I had always dreamed it would be. I never found Jesus, but I did find Chapstick Ferguson.

Chapstick had always lived his life in moderation. But there was a moment, a single moment that presented a series of consequences that will forever change his perspective on life, government, authority, economic, and personal values. He has lost faith in many functions most of us take for granted. Instead of going to great lengths to describe Chapstick Ferguson, I am going to let him explain himself and his situation to you in his own words.

Get ready for an interview with the one and only Chapstick Ferguson on Monday. You’re going to want to hear what he has to say. It may not be relevant to anything you ever dreamed of experiencing in your life, or anything you’d ever want to, but I can promise you that it will be interesting.

The Chapstick Breaking Point will be a series of posts exploring the trials of C. Ferguson. So stay tuned.

  1. Where’s Chapstick?! You’re missing some beautiful weather in Philly.

  2. Chapstick is taking longer than I asked him to.

    I saw the weather last night. What an anti-climatic game. It’s so like Philly. We get no respect even when we are winning the World Series.

  3. “I never found Jesus, but I did find Chapstick Ferguson.”
    Wow, powerful.

    dude, the world series win was awesome. at least i could stay up for the whole thing since it was 3 1/2 innings. how exciting would baseball be if every game was 4 innings long!

  4. That’s way more clever than I was exnptcieg. Thanks!

  5. Colin, Afraid to say that there was no influence from S.O.A.P. on my novel (though I have subsequently seen the movie). I do, though, much enjoy writing scenes that involve aircraft, as I spent 6 years in the Air Force, many years doing volunteer work with a group called The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) restoring a WW2 B-17 bomber, and have been around aircraft, in one capacity or another, for pretty much all my adult life. This likely shows in the writing where aircraft are involved in some way.234f
