Why are people assholes? Rather, why do people believe that they have the inalienable right to be such assholes? I was reading a story of a woman whose Facebook post went viral because she was insulted by another woman wearing a “Coexist” t-shirt! That’s like getting arrested wearing a shirt that says “Guilty as Charged,”… Continue reading Just Be Nice!
I try really hard to refrain from “dating” my material. This is something that I like to practice in order to keep my content relevant.
Listen, I don’t know what I am doing. Does that make sense? I have been pretending to be an adult all this time, but really I’m just a kid trapped in an adult’s body! Only I’m not nearly as adorable as Tom Hank’s character in the movie “Big.”

Can I… Continue reading Everybody has a plan, until the Wi-Fi lags!
I was always suspicious that my kids were weird, but now I have confirmed this shit. My own fault really. I’m pretty sure it comes from my parents. I walked into the kitchen a while back and witnessed what I thought was a sweet moment. I observed my daughter (Maggie) standing and staring into space,… Continue reading When do I call in the “White Coats?”
So I was carting the kiddos to school when the topic of heated car seats came up (our current grocery-hauler has none). While reminiscing about the luxury of having”bun warmers” the following conversation ensued: Me: “I miss heated seats. They were my favorite on cold mornings. The next car we get will most definitely have… Continue reading Heated Seats and Other Mysteries.
I have this problem that I didn’t realize was a problem until recently. Does that make sense? I’ll elaborate. My wife and I have this routine where she gets upset about something that usually makes zero sense to me. So if she is upset, I want to help solve whatever issue has caused whatever problem.… Continue reading Wait until she asks!
