hell to the no

hell to the no

Sometimes I look at a person (literally and figuratively) and wonder just what the ever lovin’ fuck they are thinking. Today it was a figurative look. An unexpected friend request on Facebook waited for me this morning when I logged on. It was from someone I haven’t spoken to in over 12 years. It was […]

so it’s been a bit…

so it’s been a bit…

Yes, I sort of fell off the blogging wagon for a bit. Life got chaotic for awhile… work, writing, pain issues, and then an unexpected move on short notice with about five days to complete the move. The latter was super fun, I say sarcastically. It’s been a week and a half since we officially […]

that time I went out with Rick

a little bit of backstory So WAY back in a day, before electricity and wheels the internet and cell phones, I was a teenager. It was 1988, an era of neon, hair bands, Walkmans, and Swatches. I was a senior in high school and in the DEP (Delayed Entry Program) for the US Army Reserves. […]

the time I found an illegal apothecary

A couple weeks ago, I told the story of the soldier and the… personal item. I mentioned the amnesty room in that post, telling you it was a story for another day. I lied. It’s actually a collection of stories for several days. Today is one of those days. So the amnesty room… there were […]

So a few weeks ago, I told you the story of “Marge” and how she signed me up for online dating sites without my permission or my knowledge. You can read about it here. (It’s quite a story.) However, I can’t blame all my weird dates on her. Some I’ve managed all on my own, […]

the sands of time

the sands of time

Sometimes it hits me just how much some of the people in my life have changed over time, something that has become glaringly apparent in recent years. But then I wonder… Have they changed? Or have they always been this way? Did I just not see it? Did they just hide it until it now? […]

when all the weirdos wanted to date me

when all the weirdos wanted to date me

Let me take you back to the spring of 1998. I was 27, almost 28. I was freshly divorced, a single mom of two boys. I was out of the Army, living back in my hometown. I had just started working as an executive secretary at St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York after a […]

that time I thought a tampon was a pen

If there is one thing I’m good at, it’s putting myself in embarrassing situations. It’s a gift. Or a curse. This particular event took place in 1989, when I was a young girl of not quite 19. In the present time, I am just two months shy of 51. What you should take from this […]

flummoxed

flummoxed

I inadvertently fell down a rabbit hole this morning, just by reading an about-me style page. It was less a biography and more of a slide down into a conspiracy-theory and hate-filled hole in the ground. There was an entire  diatribea bitter and abusive speech or piece of writing (a better word there isn’t to describe it) […]
