HUMOR – Your cat would kill you if it was bigger

HUMOR – Your cat would kill you if it was bigger

I’ve had trouble sleeping ever since I heard a disturbing story on the Internet news site, Buzz60. The story sited research suggesting my cat would kill me if it was bigger. And the researchers made this claim without ever having met my cat. But it isn’t just my cat. It’s yours too, if you have […]

HUMOR – Be at the dock when you’re ship comes in

HUMOR – Be at the dock when you’re ship comes in

I know someday my ship is going to come in. I just hope I’m there to meet it. I’ve been worried about it ever since I read the story of Australian writer Helen Garner. She got a message in her junk email folder recently telling her she’d won a prestigious writing prize, but the sender needed […]

HUMOR – Suddenly I like lutefisk

HUMOR – Suddenly I like lutefisk

I’ve always said, it’s a shame lutefisk is only served during the holiday season. Oh wait. I never said that, and I never will. But if I did feel that way, I’d have good reason for it. It’s in my DNA. I recently took a DNA test and was shocked to discover that a full […]

A chance of madness in March

A chance of madness in March

I’m always been a day late and a dollar short—or in this case, two years late and a billion dollars short. You probably heard that in 2014, Warren Buffet offered a billion dollar March Madness prize to anyone who could successfully pick all 64 team brackets in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. You can’t win […]

HUMOR – Take my survey about surveys

HUMOR – Take my survey about surveys

This may come as a surprise to you, but a lot of people care about my opinion and some of them are even willing to pay for it, or at least give me a coupon for it. Lucky for them, I always have an opinion—plus I’m almost always right. That must be why, in the […]

HUMOR – On the way to ambidexterity

HUMOR – On the way to ambidexterity

I developed great admiration for left-handed people the morning I accidentally sprayed my bathroom walls with hair mousse. I was trying to apply mousse from a spray can using my left hand. How hard can it be? Well, it’s not hard at all—if you’re left handed. Or if you’re right handed like I am, and accuracy […]

HUMOR – I like winter … really

HUMOR – I like winter … really

A Floridian once asked me how I could bear to live in a place that has winter three months out of the year. I didn’t tell her it’s actually six months. She didn’t need to know that. We were attending a conference in Orlando, and we were standing in a hotel meeting room, which, in […]

HUMOR – Merry Christmas

HUMOR – Merry Christmas

It’s been a tough year since my last Christmas letter. My email account was attacked by spammers. My printer died. My computer crashed. I’ve had it with technology. I would have written this letter by hand if I thought you could read my writing.  If that’s not bad enough, I’ve had a bad case of […]

HUMOR – A new flock of birds has landed

HUMOR – A new flock of birds has landed

I’m at the movie The Intern, when someone’s cellphone breaks into song up front. It’s a catchy, little instrumental and I’d probably feel like dancing if I weren’t holding a bucket of popcorn the size of Seattle and trying so hard to hear what Anne Hathaway is telling Robert De Niro. When the cellphone’s owner […]

Humor – A little light reading

Humor – A little light reading

When I picked up my mail today, I was thrilled to find, not only the fascinating notice of amendments to my credit card agreement, but also a spell-binding semi-annual report from one of the companies represented in my retirement account. I would have loved to sit down and read them both right then. But there […]
