Because she knows her father is a doofus and life is less … Continue reading Deep in My Underwear, a Wire

My depression is not yours. I'm standing tentatively in the sunshine now, leaving behind the worst depressive episode of my … Continue reading My Depression Is Not Yours
Porn Pedallers Bicycle Club Yesterday as I sat in a cafe, a man walked in carrying a bicycle helmet, on which read “Porn Star” in large, clear letters. He wore light-colored, ripped jeans. I know “fashionably distressed” denim and this wasn’t that; his pants were hideous. He wore a dark blue fleece too large for … Continue reading A Porn Star or a Homeless Man
American Time Use Survey - measures the amount of time people spend doing various activities, such as paid work, childcare, volunteering, and socializing. Not much fascinates me more than what you’re doing in your house right now. I know that sounds weird, but I just want to know how you spend your time.

Often people … Continue reading Our Dogs Kind of Love Uncooked Brown Basmati Rice
It’s a miracle that I’m able to write today during such a difficult time. Here’s the problem: I just found out that my wife is a litter bug. I've been asking myself: Should I alert the authorities?
