The Meat Section

“Don’t worry.  You won’t have to go on stage or anything,” I was promised. “Good.  Because I don’t do things like that.  I’ll freeze up.  Or throw up,” I responded. “They take volunteers so they will leave you alone unless you want to participate.” Being a human who prefers to be in a zero participation … More The Meat Section

Disaster Bridesmaid

I flew into Indianapolis in early May, ate dinner with my family, and then took off on a 2 and a half hour drive into the wilderness…or as close to the wild as I get as a city gal.

I don’t need another pair of shoes, and I used to have a rule that if I bought … More Cinderella Slippers

Pizza and Peepholes

This week I came to the sudden realization that my life was getting sad when I watched the Domino’s pizza tracker on my phone in real time.  I was transfixed, like a dog watching a squirrel out the window.  Pizza was the only thought in my mind, and until I could inhale it and satiate … More Pizza and Peepholes
