What? “What is she about?” you ask.
I’m talking about cat litter. No, wait! Stay with me here a minute. I haven’t lost my mind, I haven’t been sniffing the litter or anything. Well… in all honesty, in the past I didn’t really need to sniff it. The odor just sort of wafted throughout my house, all the way from the little nook i [...]
To the person ahead of me in line
Go ahead dear, please, just take your time
I’m in no real hurry, though this line is Express
You’ve got 62 items, I’ve got 61 less
But hey, don’t do anything under duress
Like doing the decent thing
Letting me go first
It’s not like I’ve corpuscles threatening to burst
You’re tooling around in your car, you think about cranking some tunes with the windows down, the wind in your hair…you reach for a CD…maybe it’s a Stones day. But just as soon as Mick gets into it, your 5 year old is drowning him out with protests. “I WANNA LISTEN TO MYYYYYY MUSIC!”
Nineteenth nervous [...]

Laughter: the great sanity stabilizer
Try to get through life without LYAO
Do I amuse you?
You amuse me
We’re all in on the joke
The world’s a funny place
Ya gotta laugh
The wor [...]
I consider myself to be a pretty compassionate person. However, as I look back on my life, I am reminded of times when I could have been warmer, more generous, more giving, and certainly more understanding.
In some ways, youth and our own tendency toward self-absorption gets in the way of truly seeing those around us and recognizing their nee [...]
My therapist once told me that the best way to deal with my family estrangement issues was to write a letter to the person in question, get it off my chest and out on paper. I could then either choose to send it with the knowledge that I’d be “heard” and expect nothing in return, or keep it to myself, using it as nothing mor [...]
Attention ladies! Have you been out and about at local grocery stores and malls wearing nothing but your workout duds? You know what I’m talking about; yoga pants. Do you throw on a pair and casually spend the day in them, whether you’re doing yoga or not? Are you traipsing about at school pickup in your spandex like some brazen h [...]
We were in the car, Miles was in the backseat playing a Star Wars game on his Nintendo DS, and the music was swelling in our heads. Daaaa…Daaa…Da Da Da…Daaa…Daaaa…Da Da Da Daaaa Daaa…Da Da Da Daaaa!
Usually we hate the DS music. For God’s sake, would it kill the game programmers to include music t [...]
In a far off quizzical land known as Texas
An astounding thing happened that stuns & perplexes
It seems a young boy somehow instilled some fear
In a playmate he said he could make disappear
See, he’d just seen The Hobbit, so his new playtime “thing”
Was that he had possession of a magical ring
He told his young friend he [...]
Poor little first grader Jacqueline Thacker
Her mother, it seems, is a staunch anti-vaxxer
So determined was she to protect Jacqueline
That she let her go this long without a vaccine
No small pox, rubella, hepatitis or mumps
She ignored all the doctors, dismissed them as chumps
All of the hype only invoked more terror
Testimonials from Hollyw [...]
elleroy say: He who order Chinese food…still have to order dessert. Because the fortune cookies suck.
Everybody knows the fun is in the fortune. But what the heck do they mean?
I got one that said “If you’re still hungry…order more food.” How prophetic. It’s Chinese food, people. Of course I’m still [...]
“I feel just a little…”
“No…just a little frustrated because…”
“You can’t find your keys?”
“No…I can’t seem to…”
“Get everything done in a day?”
“No…what I’m trying to say is…”
Seems you can’t turn on the TV lately without hearing about Patriots football team head coach Bill Belichick’s balls. In fact, really, the whole team’s balls. Apparently they were deflated during a pretty important “event”. Now there’s a lot of controversy over who did what to the balls, whether they were [...]
I’m thinking about making this a series.
Seriously, Miles’ third grade teacher is driving me crazy. She’s a nice lady, and I know she’s just doing her job, according to the dicktum dictum being set forth by the school board, the state, and yada yada. Teachers have one of the hardest, most important jobs there is, and [...]
It’s not easy raising a teen. Especially now, when they’re all locked in their rooms playing video games, only resurfacing for matters of sustenance or expulsion of bodily fluids. Getting them to talk to people who come to the house? In full sentences? How about when friends and relatives come over for a holiday or the kid’ [...]
