Humor – Be Quiet… or Else

I wake up in a relative’s apartment in another time zone to a beeping sound. It’s 4 a.m. That’s 3 a.m. for me. And it sounds like an alarm clock is going off in the apartment below. It beeps, and it beeps, and it keeps on beeping. And after twenty minutes of beeping, I assume […]

Humor – Twenty questions….and then some

If we can put a man on the moon, and store thousands of books on an e-reader, and use our cell phone to text people sitting across the dinner table from us, why can’t we have hotel room doors that don’t slam? And snow shovels that snow doesn’t stick to? And smoke detectors so smart […]

Humor: Updating the Wisdom of the Ages

Humor: Updating the Wisdom of the Ages

It’s a new world. Isn’t it time we update the old adages we used to live by. Early birds don’t even want worms anymore. A penny saved might be a penny earned, but it won’t buy you squat. And if it ain’t broke, we don’t fix it anyway; we redesign it. And the old one, […]

Humor – The Super What?

I grew up thinking that men invented football just to get out of doing dishes. I have seven brothers; there were a lot of dishes. And there was a mass exodus from the dining room to the living room on Sunday afternoons, so you can see how I might think that. You can also see how, […]

This morning when I opened the Internet, I was greeted with 9 Curious Ways to Stop Snoring, 5 Resume Updates for a Career Upgrade, and 12 Surprising Dangers in the Office.

Humor – A few of my favorite things

There are two kinds of people in the world; those who love cake and those who cut the cake in half and eat the half with the frosting on it. Then they do the same thing with a second piece, because, after all, they’ve only had a half. That’s my group. I believe cake is […]

Humor – The Cycle of Stuff

If you’re ever tasked with cleaning out your parents’ home, I can almost guarantee that as you’re working, you’ll be repeating the following mantra: “I will never do this to my children. I will never do this to my children.” And while you’re chanting, you’ll be filling boxes with everything you want to keep. I […]

Humor – Stopping the Clock

The funny thing about life is, you’re going along just fine, and then one day you wake up and you’re old. I thought the organizers of my high school reunion goofed. The invitation said it was No. 35, but I graduated in 1978, and that’s only… oh wait… The 35 years since I graduated from […]
