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 [...]

They began exploring the highway several years ago, gradually heading west and eventually want to make it to the end at Santa Monica. This year they hope to make [...]

The Rules of the Middle Urinal

The men’s bathroom nearest to my office has three of everything – three sinks, three soap dispensers, three stalls, and three urinals. Two urinals on each end, one in the middle. The urinal on the far left is lower for short people and children. The other two are 18 inches from the ground. Between the [...]

Auto-Incorrectness

Auto-Incorrectness, we’ve all seen it. Sometimes it’s hilarious, and sometimes it happens to us. Whether it’s a voice activated text, Word document, or social media post, autocorrect can change our intent and meaning. In other words, autocorrect isn’t always correct. It’s often auto-incorrect. Sorry For Your Inconvenience A few years ago I wrote a letter [...]
