It Comes in Threes September 16, 2017

                Honestly, the day started out just fine if you don’t count the fact that I had to set my alarm for 6 on a Saturday morning.  I drove my son to his rehearsal at the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, drank coffee and wrote in the audience, and was generally peaceful, if a little sleepy. …

On the Road with Mario September 2, 2017

My husband’s name is Mike, not Mario, but you wouldn’t know it from the way he drives. I’m pretty sure that my husband goes out of his way to accelerate and brake in the car in such as way as to maximize the g-forces his passengers experience.  It is in this way that he can…

Selling a Piece of Paradise July 22, 2017

I have to sell a little piece of paradise, and I’m hoping you will help me.  I mean, I don’t have to have to, I’m not a desperate seller, but it doesn’t make sense for me to hang on to it.  Way back in 2007, about 15 minutes before the housing bubble burst, my husband…

Day Drinking as a Public Service July 9, 2017

My husband and I have had a long standing argument about whether or not I am a cheap date.  He swears I am.  I wasn’t convinced.  The problem, I joked, was that he was comparing my normal human metabolism to his, which resembles that of a hummingbird.  The man lives on Skittles and Jamocha shakes…

Customer No-Service July 2, 2017

Customer No-Service I work in a law office.  And, working in a law office, we get more calls from the jail than your average business that isn’t a bail bondsman might.  In fact, getting calls from the jail is a pretty important part of our business, what with there being a whole part of the…

I Want a Wonder Woman Lunchbox June 4, 2017

It should surprise absolutely no one who has met me for more than twenty minutes that I went to see the new Wonder Woman movie the minute I was able, which was actually the day before the wide release premiere.  A movie theater near me was doing a special sneak preview, complete with a woman…

Say Ahhh May 14, 2017

It isn’t terribly pleasant when a doctor has me open up my mouth and say ahh so she can get a peek at my throat.  I have a tendency to gag on the tongue depressor, and I find myself worrying about the quality of my breath.  But I’m not embarrassed.  There’s nothing humiliating or even humbling…

Twenty-Five Years Later May 7, 2017

If you want to feel old, mark the passing of a quarter century since you’ve accomplished something.  Such was how I felt when I walked into the room of old people at my 25th college reunion and found out that they were my classmates.  I was a teenager at the same time as these balding…

Jackfruit April 30, 2017

My son and I have a rule, which is that every time we go to a grocery store, we pick some kind of food we’ve never had before and we buy it. He always tries it. I only try it 85% of the time. For example, I did not try the tinned octopus. We’ve found…

Cultural Literacy and Terrible Old Television April 23, 2017

I have a tendency to make obscure references, which don’t feel obscure to me, since they are based on things I’ve seen and remember. To me, the more things you know, the more random connections you can make, and so the funnier the world is. Plus, I like to be able to participate in whatever…
