I think I need to clear up a misconception about my writing, and it is this: that what I write is the truth.
The fact of the matter is this: what I write is NOT the truth.
The characters that appear throughout my blog, while sometimes using a real person as a starting point, are not real people.
The stories I write, while sometimes having a small element of truth, are just that: stories.
My name is not Charlie Pepper, my father is not an elephant keeper, I never dress like a Mexican, and... well, you get the picture.
I write to entertain myself, and hopefully you, and that is all.
And just to prove it, I have included a recent photo of myself, to show that I'm not really a cow.
