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 […]

Humor – Late for time management

Humor – Late for time management

I don’t know what this says about me, but I was late for a time management seminar. And I could have used every minute of it too. Theoretically, we all have the same 168 hours in our weeks, but I consistently come up short by around 20 hours. There’s clearly some leakage somewhere. Or some […]

Humor – Diet starts with die

Humor – Diet starts with die

Another day – another dumb way to lose weight. The season of scantier clothing is upon us, and if you’re looking for crazy ways to slim down quickly or die trying, you need look no further than the Internet. That’s where I read about the extremely svelte Freelee the Banana Girl whose diet plan consists […]

Humor – Affordability or durability? I choose both

Humor – Affordability or durability? I choose both

I know it wasn’t long ago I complained about the demise of my dishwasher. And not long before that, I complained about my computer dying. And not long before that, I complained about having to replace my stove, my humidifier, my vacuum cleaner, and my garage door opener. Now my printer has failed me. I know […]

Humor – Sufferin’ Succotash

Humor – Sufferin’ Succotash

My husband and I acquired a kitten in the same way most middle-aged people acquire a pet. We inherited it from our son. Over the years, I’ve had some minor issues with cat allergies, but this cat doesn’t seem to bother me. Or rather he doesn’t seem to bother my allergies. He does bother me. […]

Humor – Step it up!

Humor – Step it up!

I come from a long line of pacers. With 10 kids in my family, we had more children than chairs when I was growing up. Our motto was “On your feet, lose your seat.” Plus I walked uphill both ways to school every day, including home and back for lunch. It was so far, it’s […]
