I Left You Alone for Ten Minutes Part 2 December 6, 2018

As you will recall from last week’s column, I left my husband alone for ten minutes at a street fair in South Carolina, 200 miles away from our home, and instead of buying a jar of local honey or an antique saw blade painted with local scenes like a normal person at a craft fair,…

I Left You Alone for Ten Minutes November 29, 2018

I didn’t grow up with pets.  My father has a basic contempt for any critter that doesn’t have the sense to be born a human being.  My mother teeters between being afraid of anything with pointy teeth and being grossed out by anything with an exposed anus.  Our pets were limited to birds in cages…

Ode to Flannel Sheets November 8, 2018

Ode to Flannel Sheets “Beauty is truth, truth beauty,” And beauty occureth not without a good night’s sleep. Therefore without sleep, there is no truth, Only a jumble of undercaffeinated syllables.   Percale will do, maybe even soothe on hot summer nights.

I’m not a huge fan of scary things.  Probably because my day to day life is scary enough.  As a lawyer, I’m one of the first people that gets a call when someone dies, I’m in the room when people are told they are never going to see their children again, and I am often…

Cleanliness is Next to Impossible September 29, 2018

The biggest problem with cleaning your house beyond a swipe with a paper towel is that you realize the level of filth you’ve been living in. There was a stain on my carpet.  The stain was annoying me because it was large enough to be seen from Mars.  I found some carpet cleaner and an…

Blog Tour — Are You Still Kidding Me? September 21, 2018

One of the best parts about being a part of the Erma Nation, that is, being a part of the fabulous group of women (and the handful of brave, brave men) that descend upon Dayton, Ohio every two years is having the opportunity to meet fantastically talented, funny women who write books.  My friend Stacey…

Mean Spirited Jerk Faces September 14, 2018

If you’ve been watching the news lately, or even been trying to avoid it, or occasionally taking a gander at Facebook or Twitter or your social media of choice, or at the very least been forced to overhear the conversation being held by the people in the booth next to you at Waffle House, you…
