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. But in the winter?  The flannel sheets grab you, Hold fast to your…

My Superpower October 12, 2018

“If you could have any superpower, what would it be?” Of course, I’m not going to get a superpower any time soon, but it’s an interesting question to contemplate.  My first thought when presented with this question was that of all the superpowers held by all the superheroes I’ve witnessed, the thing I’d like the…

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…

You Can Go Home Again August 3, 2018

I went home again. I got off the plane, and the smell hit me in the face with the force of a Mike Tyson punch. There was garlic there in large measure, and jet fuel – sure, it was an airport.  There was an overlay of stale B.O. and car exhaust, and a hint of…

Pleasures of the Flesh July 20, 2018

Do you prefer physical pleasure or mental pleasure? Being in possession of a human-type body like I am, there is some routine maintenance that needs to be done.  Most of that maintenance is not particularly pleasant.  It can be invasive, uncomfortable, or downright painful.  Yet I persist, partly out of a desire to survive with…

To Yap or Not to Yap. July 6, 2018

For reasons I do not care to get into right now (though trust me, everyone is fine now) I have spent a lot of time in hospital waiting rooms lately.  These are odd little microcosms of society that have not been studied sufficiently by trained sociologists.  Therefore, I took it upon myself to make some…

Yes, I Think I’m Funny June 22, 2018

I Think I’m Funny I have this absolutely non-humorous, borderline boring, slightly academic theory on humor, which is that laughter is the pinnacle of mindfulness. That is, when you are laughing, you are entirely in the moment in which you are laughing, and completely unaware of physical and emotional pain or distress, or anything else…

Ode to a Varsity Chili Dog May 25, 2018

If you find yourself heading to Atlanta and you post something on social media like, “Going to the ATL – where should I eat?”  9,999 out of 10,000 people who reply will tell you to go to the Varsity.  The Varsity is a fast food joint, I guess, in that it serves hamburgers and hot…
