Real Life Unfolding

Today I drive to Florida.  In 2 hours I will load two dogs, three kids and one wife into a giant vehicle with no concern for fuel consumption and drive toward an impossible peninsula filled with well meaning hoards of elderly people, meth heads, and 25 foot pythons. I am relatively sure that there are…

Happy Blue Bacon Day!

Gearing up fro St Paddy’s Day? Well you should know that The man associated with the raucous, green beer drinking, corned beef and cabbage eating Irish celebration that we know today probably wasn’t Irish at all.

Barista Movement

I’m tired but I’m not “yell at a barista” tired. Sometimes I am though and it’s all I can do to not snip at a customer service rep or grumble at a slow walking person in front of me at the airport or… yell at a barista? I don’t know if I’ve ever been that…

Smell The Evolution

Always in hurry. Never on time. This is the modern state of being as far as I can tell. Or is it? Modern, I mean. Did neolithic man find himself rushing around the mountains and plains gathering and hunting with no time to just take in the beauty of his surroundings? No time to have…

40 Yards And A Mule

Today is the biggest of the three days per year that I care about football. I live in Savannah Georgia so I have adopted the Falcons and now they’re going to the Super Bowl and I am going to a pizza place. I don’t eat pizza and I don’t play football but I’m very excited…

Went to the gym… now I feel better… why do we always forget that immediately?  Why does my mind fight my body in most things that guide my life? Hey big pharma? Do you really want to own us forever? Make us a self discipline pill. The most addictive pill ever. If we get hooked…

Childish Things

I was looking for a topic for this blog and even started writing about babies sleeping when my doorbell rang and the dogs barked and the baby cried. I answered it and it was two men who claimed to have the answers to the questions people have been asking. They asked me if I wanted…

Routine Spontaneity

That pivotal moment… do i work out? Do I work? Do I immerse myself in whatever bad news is coming out of Washington? Do I go back to sleep? Do I sit quietly in a room with my thoughts for the day? Am I doing that now? Routine saves me from all of those choices….

The Top Of The Hour

Eating is weird. We have to do it so much. Doesn’t it feel strange sometimes to watch a large group of travelers, on a plane, all being fed at the same time like livestock.  I think we strut around pretending we have some special powers that exempt us from the animal kingdom but we are…

Does This Phone Make Me Look Young?

Why do we resist aging when it is absolutely the only thing we can’t resist? We can diet to be thinner we can work out to be stronger but none of this keeps us from aging. I have figured it out! I’m just going to make impulsive decisions, give my pets to family members when…
