Top Ten Questions not to Ask Your Boss  

Questions not to ask your boss sometimes just slip out. We’ve all done it — opened our mouths before our brains engaged and asked our boss a question that undermined our career (or could have).

My Dad, Water Jugs, and Customer Service

Every Sunday, I take dad to the grocery store. On the way, we stop by a big-box hardware store to pick up two 5-gallon jugs of water. The emptied returned jugs are supposed to be processed through a shoot, into a bin, followed by a return receipt. This is only in theory. Dad and I [...]

Why I Pee in the Shower

There you have it. Yes, I pee in the shower. Not sometimes, but every time I take a shower. Don’t get me wrong I don’t step into the shower to urinate. I relieve myself when I’m taking a shower. Every time. Everyday. Also, you should know it’s my shower. My wife and I have separate [...]

I Created a Virtual Beach Weekend and So Can You!  

Last week I posted a couple of photos of a backyard virtual beach I created for my wife and me. Several friends asked me how I created a virtual beach weekend. What was my plan? One friend suggested I write about it. Thank you, @Carol_Stephen. How the Idea of a Virtual Beach Weekend Started Other than [...]

Sitting on Your. . . Self and other Hazards of Aging

I’d heard about aging men painfully sitting on their scrotum but had never experienced this geriatric phenomenon. This morning I nearly did. As I sat on the toilet, my boy parts exposed to the cold porcelain, my testis rested on the seat as my left thigh and buttocks approached. Only by quickly (okay, I wasn’t [...]

The Year I Knew Santa Wasn’t Coming

The year was 1961. I was ten years old, and I knew Santa wasn't coming. It was a Saturday in mid-December, and I was working with my dad at the Lark Foods convenient store he managed. I made 25 cents an hour, taking out trash, sweeping floors, and stocking shelves. The store was unusual in [...]

They Leave Things for Him

I recently had a colonoscopy. It wasn’t my first. However, there were a couple of firsts during this procedure. One of my revelations caused me to stop and say, wait! what? Before I understood what was happening, I had to ask for clarification. It was made perfectly clear, and it was hilarious. I’ll get to [...]

A Sign from Above

First of all you have to understand, I’m not what you would call handy. I don’t have the know-how or patience for repair work or construction. My wife does the repairs around the home. I’m not talented at making things. My brother got that gene. He makes furniture. However, I do consider myself creative, and [...]
